With so much daily use, our refrigerators can easily become dingy and worn looking well before they stop working. That’s why Lolly Jane will show you how to spray paint a fridge to make it as fresh as your eats! Just remember, COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint can help you hide worn-out paint, but we can’t help you hide the fact that you ate the last piece of cake after everyone else went to bed. That’s on you.

Prep fridge for painting
Prepping your fridge for painting is key, and will make the painting process so much easier! Remove the handles and doors, and make sure to safely store all screws and loose pieces somewhere safe so you have them ready to go when reassembling the fridge. Next sand the fridge enough to give the paint enough texture to grip onto. Lolly Jane used medium-grit sandpaper with an electric sander. The wipe everything down with a damp rag to remove all dust.
Tape off and prime fridge
Use plastic wrap to cover the inside shelves of the fridge, and use painter’s tape to help hold it in place. Tape off the insides of the doors as well. COLORSHOT spray paints have primer in them, but you can spray the fridge and its parts with primer first for extra coverage before painting.
Spray light, even coats
Now it’s time to paint! Shake your cans of spray paint very well, then spray at least two light, even coats onto the fridge and doors, letting dry between coats. Add another coat if you need, then let everything dry and cure completely.
Spray paint handles an accent color
If you want to make the handles stand out like Lolly Jane, spray paint them a fun accent color that vibes with your overall kitchen color scheme! After the paint has dried, seal all parts with spray sealer to help preserve and protect it. Once everything has cured, reattach the handles and doors.
