I painted my refrigerator... with chalkboard paint.

repurposing 04.18.16
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 Day Cost: $50 Difficulty: Easy

    I too made my fridge into a chalkboard. It was easy and I love it. My husband is the grocery shopper and he never knows what to buy, so it is also really handy. Saves grocerymoney on goofy stuff we never use that he buys.
