I saw on Pinterest a washing machine that was aqua with white polka dots, but my husband veoted that idea. Which really would have been way more work than I wanted to tackle anyway. And I figured if the Crock Pot didn't turn out, I could buy a new one. If the washer was a disaster, I'd still be stuck with it.
|I gathered supplies, which included a circle punch, painters tape (vinyl would also work, but I have plenty of painters tape on hand) and High Heat spray paint. Black was the only color available, although I would have preferred aqua...|
|I started with the 1.5 quart Crock Pot (it is the cheapest to replace since it is the smallest). As with most things, it is the fear of failure that prevents us from tackling a project.|
|I cut out circles from the painter's tape with my punch and put them on the Crock Pot in random patterns, paying special attention to cover the dials for Off, Low, High and Warm so I did not paint over those.|
|I also covered the bottom where the cords are with plastic and more painters tape|
|Then I spray painted the High Heat paint all over the exterior of the crock pot.|
|The finished product!|
|This is the back - obviously:) The only thing I would have done differently is covered the handles so they stayed white. I use my Crock Pots quite a bit so I will report back to let you know how the new paint is holding up.|
