    I am a fellow German citizen living in Central Texas. I love, love, love your ideas!! I hope I’ll be able
    to transform my fridge and stove because the stainless steel’s protective coating is coming off and the appliances look as if I never clean them. Keep the ideas coming!!

    1. Oh vielen Dank Sylvia! Good luck with your fridge and stove ๐Ÿ™‚

      Though colored wrap is great, and you should “go for it” On stainless that is losing or lost its protective coat. Windex or glass cleaner with ammonia. Spray down the appliance, rub off with a cotton dishtowel. You may have to repeat the process a few times. Once the coating is completely off, keep a spray bottle of window cleaner handy for your daily cleaning. Works like a charm. I have a kitchenmaid Range and Dishwasher and a blue Big Chill Pro Range ( that I absolutely love because it is not electronic). Best of luck with the appliance wrap!-Jana

    I absolutely love your willingness to tackle tricky projects. The finished product looks custom and definitely high-end. I can barely wrap presents, never mind appliances. ๐Ÿ˜‰ You continue to inspire me.

    1. You can do it too ๐Ÿ™‚ the nice thing is that you can take the wrap off several times and redo it again ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Julia, this looks FANTASTIC! You are so creative!

    1. Thanks Lori! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow, Julia!!!! Iโ€™m so impressed by your creative solutions to design problems! Your stove looks so nice with the wrap! It really makes your kitchen look custom. Itโ€™s sucks that the first attempt didnโ€™t go as planned, but so cool you shared this with readers so they can avoid an accident. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and cool projects!!!

    1. I feel like most projects don’t go as planned ๐Ÿ˜‰ LOL and thanks so much.

  6. Stunning! You are so creative!! Love the change. Not a fan of GE products, but hey, you deal with what ya got. Love it!! Will be looking at your peeling cabinets blog, cause that’s what happening to my cabinets, they are to expensive to replace.

    1. Yes I wish I had a different stove but ours broke during the height of COVID and there was nothing else ๐Ÿ™ The peeling cabinet post is one of my really old ones and I wish I had taken more photos but I still have the same cabinets, I just keep repainting them and it is working out great. I thought about wrapping them as well ๐Ÿ˜‚ The vinyl wrap is just so great.

  7. What a game changer. I love this so much and I think I’m going to try it after the holidays. I have almost the same stove. Thanks for the detail and transparency in your post, what a bummer about the shattered glass.

    1. Oh I’m glad you like it and good luck!

  8. Rebecca Schultz says:

    OH my I’ve always wanted a copper colored metal looking stove….Just wondering how that would look?

    1. Hi Rebecca, I saw there are metal wraps out there and you could try it ๐Ÿ™‚ If you do let me know how it went!

  9. Any advice on vinyl wrapping a microwave? Is it safe? I can’t seem to find much about it. Your stove is amazing.

    1. Hi Lila, I’m not sure about a microwave. I’d think that you couldn’t wrap it around the corners. I would definitely keep the material away from the inside of the microwave. And thanks!

  10. Im so excited to try this. But im confused about how you went around the glass. Did you remove the glass and put it back in?

    1. Hi Rena, no I left the door as is with glass and just stuck it to the entire metal and the glass and then cut out the window part. Good luck!

  11. Why did the glass on the oven door break? Just curious before I try this myself. Thanks!

    1. HI Claire, I overtightened the handles that I made myself while attaching them. If your handles are attached to metal then you don’t have to worry at all. If you make your own then watch if they are attached to glass.

  12. Please tell me where you got the hardware for the handles…or the entire handles. I have been searching for months for the stuff to make the kind of handle you made.

    1. Hi Angela, I made them and linked to them in the blog post called DIY drawer pulls. I can also email you the link of you can’t find it.

  13. It’s an amazing job ( I always dreamed of having appliances with the same color), but I do have a question: stove. Paper installation, isn’t the paper direction say max heat 225F?
    Please let me know, I need to shop for paper ๐Ÿฅฐ. Thank you

    1. Hi Ella, the vinyl has been on my stove for several years and is doing great. It is only on the outside of the oven which doesn’t get nearly as hot as 225. I’m not sure how warm the oven gets on the outside but you are able to touch it everywhere so that means it’s fine. Good luck!

  14. Can you share the paint colors for the cabinets? Or was it all vinyl wrap? Itโ€™s hard to read the post because I keep getting pop ups, so I apologize if you addressed this in the blog

    1. Hi Thea, it is Lush Sage by Valspar
