Need some advice: We just bought a stainless steel Kenmore refrigerator but the sides and top are black. The issue is our other kitchen appliances are stainless steel and white, we could not find that in a refrigerator. So I’m thinking I could paint the sides and top, obviously not the stainless steel doors. I’ve checked it out and with a little tape and time I think it’ll be doable. Have any of you ever painted a refrigerator? What kind of paint should I use? Spray, roller or brush? Etc. Thank you for your time.

well... the paint can may say appliance white, but.

This is really an attempt at color matching..

Try to get info from the refrig manufacturer... backed enamel? powder coat? textured gloss resins?

You may want to take some proper prep steps B4 U start spraying from the can. Take the info to a good paint store ( not the big box store).

Definitely use spray paint cans. I know Wal-Mart has spray paint that is specifically for metal in a variety of colors. I've used a Krylon paint on some metal rollup garage doors and it worked perfect. Just make sure and spray a little at a time because just one drip can make things look really ugly. Also keep track of the color you use.
