Refrigerator Makeover

I have settled into life in San Antonio. Still not LOVING it (I miss my older kids) but I do like it more than I expected to. There is always something going on in the city, we have found a church we enjoy, Makenna had a great school year, and the house is really coming together. I have tackled many of the bigger projects, so now I have moved on to smaller, one-day, type undertakings. We have had this old and ugly refrigerator that now lives in our laundry room for three years. We use it for storing extra milk, soda, beer, etc.When we first bought it, it lived in the garage and I never had to look at it. Since we moved to San Antonio, it's home is now in the laudry room/drop zone and I have to see it multiple times a day. It was definitely putting a big damper on the bright and light vibe that I was going for in there, so it had to get a makeover. My sweet husband was home sick one day (I bet he doesn't do that again anytime soon) so I figured it was a great time to ask him to haul it into the garage for me so I could paint it.
I used some handy dandy appliance epoxy to take it from blechy beige to bright white so it would match my washer and dryer. I also removed the handles and spray painted them with some silver metallic.

I ended up doing three coats to get as much coverage as I wanted. Then, because I just can't leave well enough alone, I had to break out the Cricut and vinyl to add some much needed pizzaz. I love how it turned out. It is cute and fun, lighter and brighter, and makes me happy when I see it now. I Googled images for hibiscus (my new favorite flower) silhouttes, uploaded the images to Design Center, and ta-dah, cute fridge! I had to add the Razorback per request of my hubby-I figured I should comply since I made him haul a major appliance with a fever, but the Razorback ended up with a hibiscus tattoo.
