Step 1: What You'll Need
2 12oz. cans of spray paint, depending on size
1 Roll of thin masking tape
1 Roll of large masking tape
1 Boring Refrigerator
1 can of Liquid Deglosser or sand paper
Step 2: Cleaning
Clean off the outside of the fridge to prep it for painting. (Mine had a lot of old price tags that made it very difficult to clean off)
Step 3: Prep for Painting
Either use sand paper or liquid deglosser to get the fridge ready for paint.
Step 4: Mask
Use masking tape and newspapers to cover up spots that you dont want paint to get onto, like the seal for the door.
Step 5: Paint
Using the color of spray paint of your choice spray the door and outside of the fridge. I did several coats of each to give it a better color.
Step 6: Stripes
After letting the paint sit over night start taping off the areas where you dont want your stripes. This is a slow step because you want the lines to be evenly spaced from the top of the fridge to the door.
Step 7: Paint Stripes
Paint on your stripes in the color of your choice. I did several coats for this as well.
Step 8: Remove Tape
After letting the paint sit over night remove the tape to reveal a fridge that people will continue to be amazed by.
Step 9: Relax
Sit back with you favorite cooled beverage from your favorite new fridge.
