UPDATE: So I just got a comment from someone telling me, that Latex Paint can be flammable. We gave our toaster a quick test run and it seems fine (obviously that doesn’t prove anything!). Just wanted to let you all know!! Maybe it wasn’t the bestest idea I’ve ever had I didn’t delete this post because of the tutorial itself. Before you paint something ask yourself this question: could this go up in flames?? So paint boxes, jars, furniture, but maybe not toasters
Yesterday I got the Chalkboard Bug… And that meant, that I just couldn’t resist to paint our ugly red Toaster with that AMAZING paint
When we first got married, I decided in a whim to have ALL our kitchen appliances in red. Thank goodness they didn’t have my KitchenAid Stand Mixer in red that day!! (even though, then I had at least a good reason to turn that into a chalkboard as well )
Ready for a little Tutorial on this subject??
Pretty simple, right? Here a few pics of the process…
This is how it looked after the first layer of paint. Let it dry completely (doesn’t take long at all, maybe 20, 30 minutes) and then add a second and possibly a third layer.
I used a foam brush and a cheap normal brush for the more delicate areas. Make sure you rinse them when you don’t use them.
Now, I haven’t used the toaster yet (we’re out of bagels…) and I can’t tell you how it will hold up over time. So don’t blame me
Hope you guys liked this one
