Simple And Fun Ways To Decorate Your Fridge

The fridge is pretty much the largest appliance in the house unless special circumstances apply. That being said, the fridge doesn’t always fit in and, even if it does, the cases when a fridge stands out being beautiful and quirky are rare. But there are lots of ways in which you can decorate your fridge and not with magnets or other common things.

When using chalkboard paint you can also create patterns. As you know, chalkboard paint doesn’t have to be black so you can use two or more colors to get the look you want. These chevron stripes look really chic and trendy.

Of course, you can also just paint the fridge a different color to change its look. A white fridge can become turquoise, orange or any other color you want so it can better fit in the décor. You can then embellish it as usual with magnets, frames and other things.{found on soyouthinkyourecrafty}.

Here are a few tips you could use when painting your fridge. First of all, lightly sand the surface and then wash it down with a soapy rag. Wait for it to dry and then carefully tape off the parts you don’t want painted such as the handles, the logo and gaskets. Paint 2 or 3 coats. Remove the tape and clean up.{found on cozycrookedcottage}.

If you want to hide the rust spots and other ugly things on your old fridge, you can use contact paper. Use plain white contact paper if you have no intention or further personalizing the fridge. In case you change your mind you can then use acrylic paint to add some stripes. {found on wecanmakeanything}.

Even though we dismissed fridge magnets at first, we have to admit that some kids are too cute and lovely not to have in the house. For example, these are mini wine cork planters with tiny succulents in them and they have magnets so you can display them on the fridge.
