Decorative painting of new freezer

Submitted to Product Chat

Hello! I just bought a new chest freezer and put the big, white block in my beautiful (really!) garage. It's an eyesore!

I want to do some decorative painting. I wish to paint the entire thing in a dark color and then paint vines, leaves, and flowers on it. I always use Testor paints for decorative painting of objects - they work beautifully and are SO durable!

What products are best? How do i:

1) prep the freezer for painting?
2) choose a paint for the all-over painting - I'm assuming a spray paint is best?
3) choose a clear coat to go over the whole thing when it's done?

THANK YOU for your expertise!
