Fancy Fridge

I'm running out the door, but wanted to say a big THANK YOU for all the living room submissions. I'm a little blown away by how many we got and I can't wait to look through all the emails this week! Thanks again, this will be fun.

I'm renting a car today to buy some finishing materials outside the city for a bedroom that is getting photographed this weekend. I can't wait to share the photos with you the first week of November hopefully.

In the meantime I thought I'd share some clever ugly fridge cover up ideas from around the web. I will always love Nick Olsen's Brunschwig wallpaper solution.

And how can you go wrong with a chevron chalkboard?

My friend here has a great prewar apartment, but her refrigerator looks a little prewar too :) so we're going to cover it up. The cork option HERE is my very favorite I think. I don't really need to cover up our fridge, but I would do it anyway. It looks amazing and seems more functional than the regular magnet situation.

Have a great day and see you back here tomorrow. xx

Wow -- I've never seen anything like the Orla Kiely wallpaper fridge. I'd love to see it in an actual kitchen --would it dominate the space or could it be worked in to be in harmony with the rest of the space?

Ha, you forgot my version of the fridge cover-up (even though it's a little on the wild/wacky side). But it's cheap, versatile and hold up well :)

I love the idea of covering an ugly fridge - especially since I have one and can't imagine buying a new one until this one is in the appliance cemetery. Mine is a lovely almond color dating from the 80s. And the cork board option is perfect since now the fridge is covered in magnets, calendars, my kid's artwork. I'm not a DIY kind of person but I am hoping to ace this one! Thanks for the inspiration and good luck with the shoot. Cheers, Cynthia

I have a terrible dishwasher that I NEED to cover...problem is I'm in a rental. What's a good way to apply one of these options (think I'd go blackboard paint) to an appliance that isn't your own? Thanks! Sarah

I'm curious about the cork board--wouldn't it be quite thin? I'm not sure that regular pushpins would work to affix anything to it...but I like the look.

Loving the floral fridge! Nothing like a bit of colour in the kitchen, think i'd smile everytime I went in for some milk :-). Thanks for sharing.

I love your post! I tore out that pic of the wallpaper fridge from a magazine a while back. I've always wanted to cover my fridge with something....
I did that for a client of mine. He commissioned me to make a painting to slip into the tracking on the front of his Sub-Zero refrigerator: . It was his idea, and I always thought it was a good one. Instead of having the front match your cabinets, you can have the front be an art piece....
