Last week I wrapped my oven with hot pink vinyl and I hated it! Well, I just hated the color, so I ordered some vinyl in another color and started over. The best thing about failing on a project is that I got to test how well the vinyl came off!
how to remove an oven wrap
My theory with this project is that it’d be the perfect for a renter. You have an appliance that you you don’t like? Or you want to add some color that is easy to remove? Add vinyl! So I tried it taking it off and wanted to share how easily it came off-If the video doesn’t work here, you can watch it on YouTube here. P.s. I’m trying to build that page up, so if you’d subscribe, I’d really appreciate that!
It came off super easily! And no damage at all. There was zero residue left on the stove- it was like new. So yes, I definitely recommend this for renters. Or anyone who wants to spend two hours and wrap their stove with vinyl.

Here’s what I did this time around to get the right color- I ordered a sample. It cost me $2.85, but then I was able to verify that I love the color. If you do this project, I definitely suggest getting a sample first!
light pink car vinyl source
The number one question I have received for this makeover is the source on the light pink car vinyl. Well, I found it on eBay from a seller who is in California so shipping was super fast to me. This link takes you to the pastel pink (they call it cherry pink) and it also has options for pastel blue, purple, yellow, and orange. Here’s a few more options-
I spent $40 for 2 pieces of the 24″x60″ vinyl. This vinyl is pearlescent and more expensive than the hot pink option I ordered last time.

To wrap the vinyl, I started with just an inch at a time and smoothed it on. Doing tiny sections was the easiest way from to not get bubbles. But if you do get a random bubble, just get your 4 year old to smooth it out ;).

Welp, I love it. I really love it! It feels retro and sweet. The color is perfection. It feels right at home!
Side note, if you like the pink cast iron heart pot as much as I do (though that might not be possible), you want to get it now! It’s on sale for 70% off!! It’s absolutely the cheapest you can get for a pink high quality cast iron enamel pot!
I barely didn’t have enough vinyl to do the drawer- dang it! I’m going to live with it for a bit. Do you think I should spend $20 more and do the drawer? I’d love to hear what you think in the comments!
For now, this old stove is sure looking pretty! It honestly took me 2 hours (and that’s with playing with a little boy next to me). This is absolutely a doable project! And for $40, what do you have to lose?!
If you love it, pin it!
