- Once you have your supplies, your first step is to tape off the parts of your fridge that you don’t want painted with your blue painter’s tape. Ensure that you have a tight seal or you’ll risk paint leaking in under the tape.
- Wipe the surface of your fridge to clean off any dust and dirt. Shake and stir your paint.
- Now you’re ready to paint. It is recommended that you put down a drop cloth before painting in case of spills to avoid stains or damage to your RV’s interior. After your first coat is done, let it dry.
- One coat will likely not be enough. Typically, three coats does the job. Make sure to let each layer dry before applying your next coat.
- After you’re done painting, let it cure for around 48 hours.
- All that’s left to do now is grab your chalk and get artsy on your new RV fridge!

Whether you are looking to cover imperfections, spice up the look of your RV, or get your hands dirty with a fun DIY project, chalk paint is a simple and fun solution.
