fridge + guestbook + listmaker + notetaker

The house we live in was built in 1910 and then renovated in the 80's to create three complete living spaces out of one gigantic Midtown mansion. It's about the coziest, quirkiest place I've ever come across in Atlanta, which made it a no-brainer for us (it's also surrounded by a canopy of huge old trees and feels more like a log cabin/treehouse, hence the title of this blog--incidentally). However, our apartment, for all of its character and charm (of which it has much), still has a few minor cringe-inducing elements that I am slowly working on eliminating / updating / making more tolerable...and that without pouring much money into a place that we're only renting. One such element that has recently undergone an extreme makeover is our fridge.

Such a poor, ugly leftover of the 80's, it was...Primer (a household staple we always keep around) + chalboard paint ($10 at Home Depot) =

Voila! Goodbye, ugly old thing. Hello, massive chalkboard, and welcome to our kitchen.

(Obviously, things have gotten a bit out of control.)

  1. I saw this on Decorativity : ) I'm in love with chalkboard paint and can't wait to start my own project. I absolutely love what you've done with the fridge.
