Powdercoating Appliances.

One of the most dramatic changes so far is the appliances. This was the cornerstone of all of the other Vintage interiors... old princess stoves in Pink, Yellow, Green, Turquiose, White... you name it!

Well this factory almond was not cutting it for me, it was too drab.



So I paid a visit to my good friend Dave Meister, owner of Meister Gauge Faces, and he has the setup to powdercoat smaller items, my appliances were just small enough to fit so I chose RED!




We did all that you see here, vent hood and screen, oven door, and stove top. They turned out FANTASTIC!!!



I added the tin trim piece to the front of the Stove, it needed a bit of silver to break up the red, I think I will eventually take that red piece and throw a coat of Chrome powdercoating right over the top, it will look a bit cleaner than this old piece.

Next, I found the perfect match to the red powdercoating for the rest of the interior... right off the shelf!

  2. Hi!

    Love the blog. I am the new owner of a 1966 14' Aristocrat Travelier. I have been trying to figure out what to do with our stove. Did you switch yours to propane? If you did, where to you got to get something like that done?

  3. Switch? The stove is original except for the powdercoating... it runs off LP (Propane)
