We keep a refrigerator in our garage, because with four kids we cannot possibly stock the milk we go through in a week in our kitchen fridge. Well, unless we bought a cow and I am pretty sure there is a "no cow in yard" disclaimer in our homeowner's policy.
Our garage fridge is a plain Jane sort of fridge. Small, white, no ice maker- no frills.
|I know. Ew. Houston is known for it's humidity. Also, mold.|
She needed some frills.
So I painted her.
With chalkboard paint.
This project took three coats of paint that I simply brushed on horizontally. Then I 'conditioned' the chalk board by running a piece of chalk over it and then erased it.

To end up with this:
|Now I can leave a list up of what is actually in the fridge :)|
We decided to leave the handles off, since the fridge doors are usually grabbed on the sides and I wasn't 100% sure that even black spray paint would stay on the handles.
She is much happier now sporting her chalk painted exterior. In fact, I'm pretty sure I heard her humming a Beyonce song when I was leaving the garage...
Linking up at Jennifer Rizzo's party!
