  1. Even tho using the stainless steel products would be much less expensive than buying all new appliances I’m hesitant to find out how much the products would be. Guess I’ll look into links you provided. I’d love the stainless steel contact paper all over my cupboards and the sheets of mosaic tiles. Of course I’d want to do appliances also. So glad I clicked on this post, might be solution to getting my kitchen rehabbed – finally.

    • Hi Jane Ellen, I have not yet tried any of these products. I am currently helping my parents make updates on their home and the kitchen will be coming up soon. I plan to paint the cabinets and redo the counter tops, but wasn’t quite sure what to do with the appliances. Their appliances work great so they don’t want to spend to replace. So I’ve found these alternatives for them. Still deciding though what we’ll exactly do. I’d like to do the stainless steel paint, but they’re still a little hesitant on that one.
