I was given an older GE refrigerator that works great, but I'd like to repaint it.
The fridge is
probably from the '60s if not earlier (rounded top and locking latch on door). The
kept it on their garage, so it has lots of surface rust on top -- but none appears to
go very deep.
Questions... does something like this need to be primed before painting? Also, any
type of paint I
should go with or avoid? I'm not sure what material the outside of the fridge is
made of. I'm
thinking it's aluminum or some other thin metal. I wouldn't think a fridge this old
plastic on the outside, but who knows.
Once it's cleaned-up, it's going into my converted garage room for sodas and such.
This room is
mainly a game room for the kids and such, so the fridge doesn't need to be perfect...
I'd appreciate any suggestions or comments... or stories if anyone else has done such
