So….hate is a strong word, and my kids aren’t allowed to use it, but between you and me, I HATE my fridge. It’s old, ugly and too small. Because I have an inside voice yelling at me to be creative daily AND I had a few hours to myself I potentially lost my mind and PAINTED MY FRIDGE! Yep, sure did, and with tinted chalkboard paint no less! Can I tell you that my old hated item in my kitchen has now become the focal point and EVERYONE comments on how great it is the second they walk in?
Okay, here’s how I made this happen:
- Chalkboard Paint (Purchase or make your own – I bought mine, Valspar tintable chalkboard paint – $13ish )
- Roller – medium size works best
- tack cloth
- painters tape (this is a must for clean lines)
- drop cloth
- Sand Paper/Sander (i LOVE my new orbital Dewalt sander from my Father-in-law)
Once your fridge is done and you decorate with chalk it wipes right off with a lightly damp rag. So Great!
