How to... Makeover with Appliance Paint

Have you been over to The Kitchn to see the $30 Kitchen Makeover (above)? What was once a dated 1950's kitchen is now retro-chic, thanks in no small part to a little bit of appliance paint...

If you're as unsatisfied with your kitchen's appliance colors as Susan Churcher says she was in this article from Sunset, you should know that there's an 'out' for you.

You don't need to shell out for all new appliances, either. If your kitchen needs a face lift to tide you over until you've got some bit loot to spend, try a little bit of appliance paint! This is also a great tip to know if you just need to touch up a spot or two on your black fridge.

You should be able to get a hold of acrylic appliance paint at home improvement stores, but if you have a bit of trouble finding the perfect shade, you can always shop online!

Once you've got the stuff in hand, follow the How To instructions at eHow to get your appliances prepped, painted and ready for their close-up!
