Old Stove or New Stove?

How in the world will I make that stove match my black appliances? That is the question rumbling around in my mind. I’m not so sure about painting my stove. I’m not sure if it is an easy DIY project. I’m not sure I’d want to tackle a big job like this.

Old Stove or New Stove

I spoke with a salesman at Home Depot and he gave me an edge. He was very knowledgeable and told me he updated several projects himself like this. His advice was to use Rust-Oleum spray paint, 2 cans, to complete the job.

I assembled supplies, 2 cans Rust -OLeum, painters tape, plastic, gloves, and scissors.

I placed the plastic sheeting on the floor and use the painters tape to cover the handles and chrome areas.

I protected the cabinets  and flat stove surface with plastic also.

I put my cat, Bootzi, in the laundry room, behind a closed-door.

I opened the window and French doors for ventilation and to remove fumes and odor.

I put on plastic gloves and a mask.

The job was a little messy (I shook the spray can well) as the spray flew out on the area past the plastic, yipps! Not to worry, I used turpentine to clean up the extra paint sprayed out.

I quickly shook the Rust-OLeum can hard to make sure I got an even spray. After coating with one complete coat, I waited 45 minutes to make sure it was dry. I sprayed a 2nd coat as advised by the salesman at Home Depot.

I waited 1 hour before I removed the painters tape and plastic. I felt of the stove and couldn’t believe how smooth it was. I clearly love this project! My only issue was with the spray can globbing out paint at the beginning. Yuck!

I hope you find this a great way to do a diy project. It helps me to save money rather than go out and purchase a new double oven stove. The project cost $7.00 (I painted the stove 2 times with just 1 can of paint) and saved me $2,500. (the price for a new double oven) I am so happy the concept, Old stove or new stove?, gave me the opportunity to research the topic and get first hand knowledge from the salesman at Home Depot. It was a win-win project.
