If your stainless steel appliances just aren’t doing it for you anymore, then TikTok is coming to the rescue. In a viral video that garnered over 1 million likes in just over a month, one TikTok user showed how she made her stainless steel dishwasher blend in with her kitchen cabinets with a genius hack that doesn’t ruin the appliance’s finish.

Using $7 contact paper, primer, and the same green enamel paint she used to paint her cabinets, Meg (@baker.blooms) totally transformed her basic dishwasher into a custom piece.

And she didn’t stop there. She used gold Rub ‘n Buff to change that black plastic top into something a bit funkier that now matches her gold hardware.

“If I end up hating it, I can wash it off with Dawn Power Dissolver,” Meg wrote over her video.

A month later, Meg updated her followers on how the DIY is holding up. “Nothing has peeled or chipped. The edges are all staying down nicely.”

The only part of the project that is showing a bit of wear is the Rub ‘n Buff at the top, but Meg said that she purposely didn’t seal it so she could properly test how it would hold up.

If you want to try this DIY project in your own home, you can pick up this roll of matte white contact paper on Amazon. The matte finish will help the primer and paint adhere better compared to a gloss finish.

Rub ‘n Buff is also available on Amazon. It comes in a handful of different gold and copper finishes and is so easy to use — literally just rub it on and buff it in to any surface.
