P.S. having to look for food in a dark fridge is a surprisingly good dieting trick. If you are anything like us and have containers and produce stacked in a delicate Jenga-like balance, you really don’t want to put your hand into the darkness and risk falling food just for a snack.
Here are some before shots:
Since most of the other kitchen appliances are black, remember the pictures from when we moved in, I persuaded the BF to let me paint our
After letting the primer dry for a few hours I used fresh roller to apply some Rust-olium Chalkboard Paint. To be exact, 3 coats with a few hours of drying between each coat.
And that's it. Now just write, scribble, draw your heart out, then erase it and start again. Seriously I love this fridge! It's so handy and looks great! If I'm not mistaken, every person who has seen our kitchen has commented on the fridge. How many fridge compliments have you got? I bet none. That's what I thought.
As you can see, we like using the fridge to make TO DO lists, grocery lists, for reminders, and to keep track of cooking times. If I ever find where I packed the magnetic bottle cap calendar I made last year I think I might stick it to the fridge and we circle important dates and write messages or appointments. Nellie the dog, however, is not as big a fan of the chalkboard fridge. If you write within her reach, she'll lick the letters off. She's more of a minimalist. The cats couldn't care less.
I still have about 1/2 of the can left, so I foresee more chalkboards in the future. Is anybody else obsessed with chalkboard paint? Or maybe you've made over a hand-me-down that everyone who sees it falls in love with, tell me, tell me.
