Pimp My Fridge

What an excellent idea this is: a dry-erase refrigerator. Too bad they’re only available in Brazil.

That got me thinking, though. How could this concept work for me? I’m not sure I like the idea of a dry-erase fridge because the markers can be used on other surfaces as well, but there’s another way to go about it.

A chalkboard!

Here’s what I would do – get a chalkboard (or, if your fridge doors are narrow like ours are, a nice piece of wood sanded down and painted with that chalkboard paint) and some Gorilla Glue or some other kind of crazy adhesive and VOILA! An instant art space!

I am totally guilty of having a cluttered front o’ fridge. We have photos of our baby and other people’s babies on there, along with Freddie’s various race numbers, funny stuff, and a comic my brother sent me when we lived in Indianapolis that has traveled with us through our various moves.

Oh, and magnets. Lots of magnets.

So when Jillian is big enough to want to start drawing on stuff, I’m thinking that a chalkboard fridge might be the way to go. It’s not like the fridge is going to be an heirloom or anything – so I have no problem at all with pimping it out. Now, if I could only get a fridge in purple…

    I LOVE this idea!! Our fridge clutter is out of hand. Mostly it’s pics.. but there’s a crapload of magnetic poetry on there that really needs to go. Magnetic Poetry is SO 1997.

    They make chalkboard spray paint so you could just paint your fridge, and maybe even add a nice purple border or something.
