Either it’s a top freezer refrigerator or any other fridge type, if it’s been working since years, you’ll find an artistic creation of notes instead of its glittery finishing. In case if you are unable to find a splash on the exterior side of your refrigerator even after peering out into the sunlight, then this is the time to think of better using the appliance, most probably painting it at your home.
By using the chalkboard paint, you’ll be able to write on the top mount fridge and freezer all over it. You can even erase it easily, without making much effort. Below, our experts will guide you on how you can paint your refrigerator with a chalkboard at home and it will be ready for anything you write on it:
Clean Your Refrigerator
Usually, we forget to clean the refrigerator particularly when it is covered with decoupage of notes, pictures and magnets. Before painting the fridge, you need to remove every single item from it. When taking off such items, you’ll find that these notes or photos couldn’t even shield the refrigerator from the spills or grease created in the kitchen. Instead, they were simply sealing them inside.
Once everything is removed, it is the time to clean the refrigerator properly. You can use a solution of soap and water with a cotton cloth to wipe down the stains and bacteria which are afflicting the fridge unit. When the fridge is completely wiped down from dust and bacteria, you can use a paper towel to dry it off.
Cover Refrigerator Areas that Don’t Need Paint
Prior to painting the fridge, you need to cover all those areas with a tape which you don’t want to be painted. For instance, if your fridge has a built-in ice dispenser which you don’t want to get painted, you can tape it off. Likewise, you can or cannot tape off the door handle. It’s entirely up to you to tape off the areas which you don’t want to get painted. Once all the required areas are taped off, you can lay a sheet below the refrigerator to avoid chalkboard paint dripping onto the floor.
Paint it up
You need to use a roller to bring classy finishing on the exterior of the refrigerator. For this, you have to dip the roller in the chalkboard paint and then paint on the refrigerator. You can see patches or spots in its first coat but don’t lose your nerves. After two to three more coats, you will get a smooth matte finishing on your refrigerator.
On this chalkboard paint, you can easily jot down your message, calendar or grocery store list. For such paint, you don’t need to have a special refrigerator. You can select any style and any brand in a top freezer refrigerator.
