Fridge Makeover Command Center

  • 5 Materials
Everything important ends up on the refrigerator. Appointments, to do list, school events, grocery list, and of course, two calendars. One for school and one for family. It's such a mess.

Most important is the school notices and deadlines. They have been placed on the side of the fridge so not to miss them. And forever updated. I wanted to make it look better and organize it.

So I picked up an antique frame and cut it to fit the side of the fridge. Then glued on magnets. For the framed chalkboard area, I used a roll of contact adhesive in chalkboard format. I just cut it to size and pressed it into place.

Then to further dress it up, I added beadboard to the bottom of the fridge.

After gluing the beads boards together, I added magnets to apply it to the fridge.

Now, we are ready for back to school and family calendars along with all of the weekly important information organized in one area.

    It's amazing how just doing this simple thing on one side of the refrigerator can give the impression of being "built in". Great idea!

    Very neat idea! Looks amazing. But that outlet cover that is missing on the wall behind the refrigerator is freaking me out!

    What a cool makeover....and brilliant use of chalkboard for messages, for grocery lists (click a quick pic of list on your cell to take with you)...also could be used for family calendar or doodling
