I Painted My Refrigerator... With Chalkboard Paint.

$50
1 Day
Easy

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.

      @Amanda Vinson Hi Amanda -- did you prime the fridge first?
