Wow, thanks to everyone for all the kind comments. I know my house is very unique, but I never imagined that so many other people would appreciate my wild color schemes. And yes, I am very fortunate to have a husband who lets me go crazy with color! Several people have commented on my pink fridge. I painted it 3 years ago and it has held up very well- no scratches or discoloration. I am loving it! It is a standard fridge that I first lightly sanded, then sprayed on a good quality oil based primer. I have a cheap spray gun that I got at Home Depot, nothing fancy but it did the job. I then lightly sanded again between coats and sprayed 2 coats of good oil based paint. I used Fine Paints of Europe. Kind of pricey, but I didn't need a lot and it has held up very well. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and well worth the effort! Thanks again for all the support.
