Before and After: Painted appliances.Close up of the dials.

• 1 quart Rustoleum Protective Enamel paint in your color of choice
• Brush or Roller (be prepared to toss it after, because the paint is oil-based and a nightmare to clean)
• spray paint for knobs
• spray laquer
• paint pen or custom stickers/vinyls

Both appliances took 3 coats of brushed on paint. Each coat required 24 hours before I could re-coat. Also, after the third coat I still had a few small problem areas, and I touched them up with a teeny cheap craft brush that I have like 30 of. It was very similar to painting with nail polish. That’s roughly the consistency of this paint. It’s really tough not to let the brush get too goopy, so you gotta be careful. If you play your cards right, you’ll get a beautiful finish.
