1950’s Retro Fridge Makeover

I found this cute little fridge on a local swap site and just had to have it even if it didn’t work. Got there, offered half the price and she said yes! And... it works!! Paid a whopping $40. Score!

    I painted my fridge this year and used the appliance spray enamel. I'm having a terrible time keeping it clean, and also my magnets stick. It's been a year of frustration! I need advice, please?

    I had one of those back in the Army as a Barracks Fridge in Germany. It was rusty I was told to paint it or toss, So I painted it flat chalk board black. and Set it so it straight across the room for the door when opened.
