This bad boy came with the house. Please, try not to be jealous.
I appreciate 'retro' to a certain degree, I really do. I just don't think I could stomach this green giant greeting me every morning as I reach for the half & half. The refrigerator is on our 'to be replaced' list, but it's not urgent. Especially since the green giant is remarkably clean. And you know what? It keeps food cold. So, basically we were just dealing with the ugly factor. The rest of the appliances are black. Easy fix.
Paint it black.
Paint it black with chalkboard paint.
And now we have a fun and functional fridge. It's a conversation piece (in case it wasn't enough of one already). It's also a handy spot to keep a list of grocery essentials. And most importantly, it's a way to entertain the kiddos.
But won't there be gobs of chalk dust on your floor, you ask? Probably. But I live with two young children, so there's also always raisins, cheerios, blocks, and possibly pee all over the floor anyway.
