Painting a Stove

Hi all,

My mom has totally re-vamped her kitchen & now wants her stove painted white 2 match...

I did read a previous post as to how to prep the appliance BUT do I have to use a special spray paint? perhaps a high heat one?

CBRPAssion, You could use engine enamel since you want white. Get the best they have. Here are the parts of a post I did a while back that would apply to a stove......Wipe everything down with mineral spirits(paint thinner) and let dry. Sand with 220 grit sandpaper just enough to get pecks out and dull the finish a little. Dust around the handles and gaskets so tape will bond and tape off anything you don't want paint on using masking tape. If this task will take more than a couple of days use blue painters tape so it will remove. Wipe again with paint thinner. Careful with the thinner because it will lift the tape. At this point you are ready to paint. Without a doubt, Sherwin-Willaims SuperAcrylic Spray Paint is the best I have used and I have used most of them. Don't let the part time help at S/W sell you appliance epoxy because it is just no good for appliances. Odd but true. Spray the first coat as lightly as you can and don't worry about lines or areas that don't cover. The idea with the first couple of coats is to fog in with NO runs. Spray one up and down and the next side to side. With the acrylic paint you MUST recoat each coat with in two hours or the paint will wrinkle the coat under it and you really have a mess. From start to finish you should spray all coats in about 2 hours. I have almond factory finish stuff and some white ones I have done this way and have had body shop people try to tell the difference and none have been correct beyond normal guessing. Let us know how it come out and good luck!.....Mike
