Kitchen rangehood refresh with paint

Having an Impact

Kitchen rangehood refresh with paint

My old rangehood had seen better days, but it still worked ok. Rather than rip it out and replace it, I used appliance spray paint to give it a new lease on life.


Step 1

Clean the rangehood to remove any grease and grime and as much old paint as possible.



Step 2

Tape up around the edges and over any buttons or areas you don't want to be silver.


Tape newspaper to the surrounding cupboards to protect from overspray.

Step 3

Spray two coats of paint, allowing to dry between each coat.


If necessary a third coat can be applied to get a nice, thick, even coverage

Step 4

Once dry, remove the tape and newspaper carefully.


I had a little bit of paint that snuck it's way onto the cupboard, but I was painting those later anyway.

Re: Kitchen - rangehood refresh with paint

Hello @raceytrace 


Thank you so much for sharing your rangehood revamp. That paint job looks fantastic, it's given it a fresh new look and all the blemishes are gone. Thanks for posting that extra photo of your painting preparation. You've done an excellent job of covering your doors, splashback and benchtop. I'm sure this information will come in real handy for our members who are thinking about re-spraying their own rangehood.


Again, thank you for sharing such an awesome project.
