    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. Such a timely post for me. I have an all white kitchen and hate my size by side fridge. I’m looking at a top French door with bottom freezer and most everything out is stainless which would so with my kitchen. Do you know how this works on stainless?
      Thanks again! ❤️

      1. Hi Cassie, it should work the same way n stainless steel as well. Good luck!

  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 !!!!

    1. Just amazing, looks so great, you did an excellent job. What a difference

      1. Thanks so much Susie, I’m glad you like it!

  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

    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.

  10. Hello,
    I love your marble backsplash but I’ve been hesitant to install that because I was worried about it getting stained with red wine, tomato sauce, etc. Did you seal yours with something that makes it easy to clean? If so, what did you use?
    thank you!

  11. What was the cost for your vinyl all in all?? And how much vinyl did you get?! I just painted my cabinets this color and REALLY want to do this with the vinyl on my outdated appliances…including the fridge. 😍

    1. Hi Claire, I didn’t include the cost because this depends on the shop where you buy the vinyl from. It depends on what vinyl brand they use and how much they would charge you to print the color. For example, my oven door was $164 for the dishwasher and $197 for the stove. And I didn’t include the measurements because every appliance is different and you’d have to measure yours. I hope that helps.

  12. Can you tell us where you ordered the brackets for the new handle on your stove? I’ve been wanting to do something similar and don’t like the handle on my stove. Do you find the diameter of the wooden rod is thick enough?
