So I've seen this on a million blogs and always thought to myself, man I'd love a chalkboard fridge  Grin So I did it!!!! I love it and I've got to young boys that are going to be so excited in the morning!!! They were begging me all day to color on it but I had to wait for it to cure for the 24 hrs LOL





I also spray painted the handles and the bottom guard thingy cause they looked crappy LOL

C&C always welcome!!!!

I love this!

But, I don't know if i have the cojones to paint my fridge...however, the dollar store sells stick-up chalkboard stuff...like drawer liners or wallpaper with a chalkboard front. Hmmm....

Thanks Everyone.
It took a few months of me trying to decide if I was actually gonna paint it, but my fridge is old and scratched and dented. I figure either I'll need a new fridge or I'll move at some point so I'm not too worried. BUT I have primed my fridge just like you would anything and I painted white few times to make it look a little less like garbage, so I guess you could change up the color too if you wanted!! But I figured chalkboard paint was really fun  Grin

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

Wow, it looks fantastic.  Was it a costly project?  My fridge is old, chipping, and even has some unsightly rust stains, so I'm looking for a good way to spruce it up!  Also (please excuse my ignorance), will magnets still work through chalkboard paint?  Thanks for sharing with us!   Smiley
