”My paint job is far from perfect but I am lazy and using my 7-year-old wedding toaster as a test run so I don’t ruin a new toaster if it doesn’t wear well.  I masked it quickly off with my frog tape and gave it a quick scuff with red brite. I then got to spraying. She is definitely a pop of sheer beauty in the kitchen.”
