I finally am delving back into the Silver Streak. I'm missing valuable camping time!
I am focusing now on painting the kitchen area. Way too much mustard yellow and way way too much woodgrain paneling.
Before anyone gets upset about painting over wood- this is particleboard paneling with a veneer wood grain. AND it was covered in wallpaper AND much of it is water damaged AND I have no qualms of making it brighter and lighter..
I had an idea of using chalkboard paint on the entrance wall and then thought what the heck- why not do the eyesore refrigerator in chalkboard paint too? I would love a stainless fridge, or stainless and glass, but way too pricey. At $15.00 for a quart of chalk board paint - this will do!
Here's my Streak's refrigerator before-
I sanded with a sanding sponge and used white spray paint on the trim. After dry I taped the trim and applied white primer to the paneling with a flocked foam roller in very thin coats for little texture.
Then 3 coats of chalkboard paint over the primer. Again with a flocked foam roller. After it dried overnight I rubbed chalk all over with the side of the chalk then erased to minimize chalk shadows.
On a side note...this is what I call the over 40 speedball. I usually start my Streak projects in the eve on a Friday, and a beer sounds good, but I need the coffee to keep me awake. Funny thing is I could only drink one beer and I was still in bed by 12. So sad!
The final touches to the entry- an inspirational metal plaque, clear caulked into a blank frame (no glass) then I screwed the frame into the wall so there is no chance of it falling. 3 IKEA hooks and I'm done other than brushing up on my writing!
Now on to the cabinets!
