Painted Refrigerator- A redo of a redo

So now you know I am trying to vamp up our dining area and kitchen with an actual color scheme and plan. I’ve been painting our cabinet hinges and knobs with Krylon’s Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint, finished the Craigslist buffet with Pure White from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and I repainted our painted refrigerator.

Back in March, we had painted our refrigerator with Rust-oleum’s Tintable Chalkboard Paint, and changed the fridge handles too. And as much as we liked the fridge makeover, it just wasn’t what I had in mind for my new plan. So one night when my mom was watching my littles, I decided to repaint the fridge before Justin and the kids came back home.  When you want something done, you just got to be sneaky about it and do it when no one else is home, am I right? ;)

So here is the refrigerator after we painted it with Chalkboard paint and changed the handles.

And here is our repainted painted refrigerator now:

I used Bermuda Bay from Glidden Paint. It is such a pretty color. Reminds me of the beach, or sea glass, or Bermuda! Seriously, if you’re looking for a color that represents any of those things then this is the perfect color for you.

Now our fridge brightens up our kitchen, and puts a smile on my face every time I walk by.  I can’t wait till the kitchen is painted, and the cabinets!  Still trying to settle on a wall color. A brown gray? A gray brown? Brown? Gray?  HELP!

Thanks for coming by today! If you liked my post feel free to Stumble it, Pin It, or share it with others! And don’t forget to leave your thoughts about paint colors for the walls in our kitchen! Or if you have any questions about painting your fridge don’t be afraid to ask!

I actually have a can of Bermuda Bay sitting in my closet fromt he free Glidden FB promo this summer. I need to paint the inside of a cabinet with it so I have something to pop in my dining room. At least that was the original intent.

Looks so pretty! How did you prep the surface, what did you use for a sealer, and how did you apply the paint? =)

Do you have some photos of the hardware you changed to oil rubbed bronze? How are they holding up (finish wise) Love both fridges...but this one especially :)

Hey Abbie from MN. are you talking about the hardware on the fridge that we changed out? or the hardware on the cabinets that I painted with the spray paint? Both are doing great and holding up well.

Hi Jennifer.
How was it drilling into a refrigerator? Did he have to use anchors or anything? What did you do to cover up the old holes?

LouAnn @ GetFitCinci.com said...

Love it! How does the paint hold up? Mine needs painting badly... and did you have to drill holes for the handles?

Would love to know more about painting the fridge, how to apply, if primer is needed, or sealer? Where did you get those handles?
