Now that we know how well the hardware looks after some spray painting, we decided to cross our fingers and give the furnace cover a face lift too. Originally the furnace was a light tan color to match the blah cabinets. We thought it would look so much better matching the "new" hardware! Using the exact same technique as we did with the handles and hinges we applied just a few coats to the furnace cover and it was an instant transformation.
As you can see it makes a huge difference!
