I Painted My Refrigerator... With Chalkboard Paint.

This was actually a really, really easy project. I was anticipating it to be really time consuming, and also to be disappointed with the results. I have to say that it really only took half a day from start to finish and I'm totally in love with it. I think the finish looks great. My blog post covers all materials you'll need, how to get the surface ready, applying primer, painting the fridge, grille, and also the ice maker component.
Time: 1 Days Cost: $50 Difficulty: Easy
This one is more of what the finish looks like after it's primed.

My fridge after I "primed" it with a coating of chalk!

Before & After photo. This is also what it looks like after it's sponged clean. Nice and black and slick.

Taping off the ice maker unit for spray paint.

2 coats of magnetic primer allows you to still stick magnets to the fridge.

    Wonderful idea:) Just wondering how you would clean it? Can you use household products to clean as you would if it didnt have the chalkboard paint? I have 3 grandsons:)
