{Inspiration Friday} Covered Fridges

{Inspiration Friday} Covered Fridges


I know you're probably wondering what I'm doing in my kitchen that involves appliances and contact paper. Today's inspiration post should give you the answer... That's right. I'm covering my ugly old refrigerator with contact paper! Seriously.

I really can't stand looking at my almost-white old fridge against my almost-almost-white old cabinets. I can't even express it in words. If you're an apartment dweller then I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Here's what we're working with. (Please ignore our ironic tourist magnet collection.)

Fridge Before

So I've spent some time searching for photos on the interwebz proving that my cockamamie idea is possible. Not that I would've needed that validation to go through with it, but more to help me convince The Scientist that I'm not totes cray. Here are some examples I found of people using either wallpaper or contact paper. WARNING: They're awesome.

Wallpaper Fridge 17Aren't these RAD?!?! And it's an easy solution for all you renters like me! Another cool idea if you can't find paper you like or don't want to deal with the process is to cover the entire fridge with photos.

Wallpaper Fridge 19Do you own instead of rent but can't afford to buy a newer, prettier fridge? You could also try painting it with chalkboard paint (like I did on my kitchen walls)!
