So we have this old fridge that just keeps humming along mechanically but cosmetically it was getting really nasty looking.
I used to keep papers, magnets and comics on it to cover as much as possible.
It was rusting from underneath the finish on the doors. I'm guessing that it was a manufacturing issue since the rest of it isn't rusting at all.
I sanded all the rust and painted over it with Rustoleum paint.
I decided on dictionary pages to cover the fridge. My thought was...it's got to be better than the way it looked before.
And in my opinion, it totally is!! I still need to put a couple coats of sealer on top so I can wipe it down as needed. I picked up the Golden polymer medium I used as glue in the recycle center reuse room for FREE!! Just two cheap foam brushes were purchased for this facelift.
Yes, I know we'll eventually have to replace this beast but until then it's definitely a conversation piece in my kitchen!!
