Left the control board attached to the bottom of the housing, just wrapped it up really good with newspaper and tape. 2 long strips of 1" masking tape work perfect to cover the front decal and then also covered the back. Then I used Krylon satin black, the one that has primer and paint in one. Oh, yeah make sure you scuff it up a little with steel wool and wipe it down good with a lint free rag. Sounds like a lot of work but it really isnt. the paint dries in 10 minutes from start to finish in about 5 hrs including 3 coats of paint and 1hr in between to dry.
The handles on the other hand where not so easy and they are destroyed. They are plastic and not metal so the paint did not adhere correctly. I tried to remove the paint and it was just a sticky mess. I picked up some standard drawer pulls from Lowes in black. As long as they have the standard 3" from screw hole to screw hold you are good. They have chrome ones, black ones.
