Painting an Appliance

I wish I hadn't waited so long to do this! It was so fast, easy and inexpensive to take my yellowing refrigerator to white again!
So easy, I washed the fridge down with hot water and dish soap, taped off the handles used a sponge brush to go around the handles then used a foam roller to paint the rest! Used two coats of rustoleum appliance epoxy paint.

    I actually have a couple of Questions..We have a old Standing Deep Freezer that Someone gave us a few years ago & it still works good but it could use a few touch ups. To be truthful it's Ugly as Dirt & Probably just as


    I'm wanting to repaint the shelves because they have rusted quite a bit & in numerous patches on the outside. That doesn't affect the freezer but the Rubber seal Around the door needs to be replaced that's the only REAL PROBLEM W/The Freezer can You recommend a good place to get a new seal from?

    As for repainting the outside I would like to paint it either the original white or even Black or Gray & is there a ,certain kind of paint that We need to use? Before we moved to an apartment we were able to keep it on our patio. Now we have it in our Dining room where & We have to look at it. Any Advice would be Greatly Appreciated.
