Revisiting the Painted Refrigerator

Pin it button big

Not a new topic, but one that deserves revisiting: decorating or painting the refrigerator. Not something everyone can do or wants to do, but when done can be a real treat for the eye and an amazing way to give some graphic and unexpected pops of color in the kitchen.

We spotted this painted fridge in a house tour we photographed last week in Austin, Texas, that will be debuting this week (so keep on checking Apartment Therapy loyally like you always do). We were so blown away by this blank-refridgerator-as-canvas art we just had to include it for inspiration.

Of course, the homeowner happens to be an extremely talented professional painter, but that shouldn't stop anyone wishing to flex their artistic muscles on their kitchen appliances. It's just such an unexpected, fun and fresh take on the usual painting a solid color or using chalkboard paint; we were really delighted by this art in the kitchen find. Would you ever tackle painting art on your fridge? What would your subject matter be if you decided to use your fridge as a canvas?
