    Amaze balls! That makes a huge difference! Good job!

    1. Thank you Kristi, I think it makes a big difference too and changes the look of the kitchen.

  2. That’s pretty amazing! It’s a perfect match to the cabinets, and you did an outstanding job applying the wrap.

    1. Well thank you so much!

    Amazing Julia! Looks so good !!!!

  4. You are totally the Bomb!

  5. Wow! Who knew?! I actually like the knobs on the dishwasher too. So creative,

    1. I actually do too. Maybe even just make handles for the stove, to make it look more custom

  6. Julia this looks a-freakin’mazing my friend…. You figured out a way to blend this piece in with the cabinetry seamlessly!
    🙂

    1. Hi Meryl, thanks so much! I will figure out what to do with the stove too.

  7. Looks amazing.
    Regarding the stove, since the “glue” is heat activated, that could be a problem when the stove gets very hot.
    Will it bubble or discolor? You might test a small piece of the wrap to see how it does with ‘spatters’ of oil, food, or grease baked on.
    I tested a potential white stone counter by leaving drops of oil, tomato sauce, and water for a day, and then for a week. I found the counter sample had water marks and stained badly. I was glad I discovered it before making a very expensive mistake. Good luck!!

    1. Hi Jackie, nope it doesn’t cause any issues because cars get very hot as well. The vinyl is made just for that. Also, a car gets very dirty on the road so I think a stove and dishwasher is pretty similar when it comes to dirt and grease.

  8. I so admire a DIY genius and you are one! As a military wife I was always trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. I needed your inspiration.

    The dishwasher looks professional.

    1. Wow thanks, Rebecca for the nice compliment!

    Wow, before your article, I never even thought that car vinyl can be applied to such surfaces as a household appliance. This is genius! When my wife said that we need to do something with our technique, as it spoils the appearance of the kitchen and accentuates the attention, I immediately started looking for paint. But on one of the forums, I saw a link to your article, although I would never have thought of that. Your article tells in sufficient detail what exactly needs to be done and how to choose the shade that we need. I also like the fact that if something happens, we can always change the appearance of our technique back.
