I purchased my first house 1year ago & am finally able to get some decorating completed. My S.O. was allowed to pick the style in one room (yes I know I'm a meanie) sooooo......

This fridge was given to me by a woman I work with. It's pretty ghetto but it works fine. It has no light inside, its missing most of the metal things on the door that keep your condiments in, the bottom shelve would cave in if you have both bottom drawers open at once, its missing part of the rubber around the door....and there is no grill for the front. Needless to say the outside was fugly so why not paint it right? When I'm done it will look like the old machines that have the 5cent coin slots & such



The rug in the pic is made from hot pads I found at the Dollar Tree sewn together, eventually I will paint a coca-cola logo on them to look like bottle caps.
Closeup:


Here are my spice rack & a shelve I use for some of my teas. I didnt really do much to these except glue some loose wood & clean them up before mounting them on the wall.



A little box I made to hold extra sponges when I was bored. Its just made from a recycled 12pack box & some red duct tape.


And the curtains over my sink (no I didnt sew them crooked the moron who put the rod up before we moved in didnt level)

I'm in the process of doing a Coca-Cola themed kitchen right now, too.  My S.O picked that as his one "themed" room, so I'm showcasing is vintage bottle collection.  Love the wooden crate idea.   

I'll have to post pictures (but I'm far from finished decorating) when everything is said and done

love your idea for the spice racks! I see these boxes now and then and wondereed what to do with  them. Now of course that I have the ideas they will be completely gone when I go next. Thanks for sharing your kitchen. I think the fridge looks great too. Your description sounds a lot like the one in this rental house! I'm looking at another one now. Now maybe I should paint it for the landlord!

i love the idea!  what kind of paint did you use on the fridge?

quick suggestion if i may

take a coke can and (carefully) cut the top and bottom off and up one side, flatten it and place it in a frame.

great job on everything.  post more pics when you have it complete (or get further along with the project)  i would love to see the rug
