Question Painting the R&R ?

Would it be okay to paint the R&R ? Don't want to hold any extra heat in the R&R,
but the dull, light gray color is not becoming on Lena?

There was a discussion about this a good while ago.
Just like with oil recommendations, there were alot of different opinions on whether to paint or not to paint.
My suggestion would be, if you want to paint R/R, go ahead, just make sure it's clean and don't put too thick of a coat on it.

When I relocated mine I also didn't like the dull gray, detracted from the over all appearance. I hit it with a little fine grit sand paper (400) and a light coat of satin black. Just make sure you tape over the electrical connection before you paint.

Not to deliberately add to your work load, but why don't you post a pic of the "before" and the "after" of your painting efforts?........
