A Beach Cottage Decorates – Old Fridge Makeover
Mon 6th, Sep, 2010
Hope the weekend treated you well. It did us. And for sure we didn’t get many of those DIY jobs done. But we did do lots of R & R.
Father’s Day here Down Under saw us on the beach for most of the morning…with a nice coffee….the afternoon took us to the bush, the boys built a fire…and barbeuqued chicken while I soaked up the warmth, read the Sunday papers propped in a chair with a drink…it’s been too long since I did that. We finished off toasting marshmallows and a cup of tea.
Now, then, this fridge is the only thing I did get going on…it was one ugly fridge that we recently acquired…with a few rusty spots and a daggy old handle past it’s best.. the pic actually makes it look a whole lot better than it actually, in reality, was….inside though no worries and even better after being zapped with a gallon of elbow grease and the sixth member of the BC Crew, my trusty bottle of Dettol.
Not being our main fridge I thought I’d have a go at upcycling, giving it a bit of the Beach Cottage treatment, playing a part in saving this planet for the kids and a few more years of service before it’s toast…here is the WIP…after a few coats of the b o r i n g prep stuff…looks better already huh?
Wanna guess what I did with it? I’m taking bets…
And I’m telling you, this turned out far far better than I’d hoped, I, my lovely lovely BCer’s am rocking this old fridge, yep my life really is that exciting!
I’ll be back soon with the after
