We speak from experience when we say that an ugly fridge can be a real downer, especially in a tiny kitchen. So as we move from diy month into kitchen and bath design month we wanted to highlight something that touches on both topics. This awesome green polka dotted fridge from flickr user jasna.janekovic is an easy enough diy and a great way to create a fun focal point out of a potential eyesore: You could easily use a potato stamp for something like this and you could use appliance paint to make sure it sticks.
If anyone has more experience painting a fridge (other than polka dots) chime in with what worked best for you. We've read conflicting accounts on thrifty fun and metafilter.
