Whoot, whoot! I can’t explain it, but something about this pinterest challenge put a smile on my face every time I tweeted, typed, or worked on it! I love how everyone jumped on board and was inspired to knock something off their own to do list. If you have no idea what I am talking about, rewind and catch up.
So, what did we do and what on earth were we inspired by?
I knew we had to do this the second I pinned it! It’s located in my Let’s Make Something board.
Joey was a little “eh” about the whole idea. When we moved in the house came with one of those basic white fridges. Now we plan on doing a whole huge ($$$$) reno on the kitchen at some point, but for now was are doing a DIY update while we save the dough. We are cash money people. If we don’t have the cash, we don’t buy it. If you have renovated your own kitchen, or done any research you know it can cost $50K+. That’s not French fry money!
So, I reminded him if all fails, we will have a new fridge someday soon when we do the big reno. To our surprise, we L-O-V-E the way it turned out. So if you have a basic white box, you are in luck! In a few simple steps, and $10 you can change things up in the kitch! Ready to break it down? Here we go…
We started with a white box:
Grab some chalkboard paint, we got some spray cans:
WAIT! Don’t just spray. Kidding. Bad idea. The project was mildly more complicated than that, but not too much. The fridge is too slick to handle the paint. It will run and not be even. So, here is what we did.
We sanded her down with an electronic sander, then decided it may be a good idea to protect the surrounding area with some brown paper we taped to the walls.
Then we painted two coats. It only took one can of paint to do the whole project, but it’s good to have a second can around for touch ups.
Perty neat, eh? It was scary to do, we aren’t going to lie. But we love it! It’s unexpected and totally fits in with what we are doing to the kitchen. Plus we get to be silly on our fridge!
So there was our challenge, and mission is accomplished! What did you do? Leave a comment to share your accomplishment! Also, don’t forget to check out the other hosts of the Pinterest Challenge:
