Screw Driver (to remove door)
Black chalk board spray paint
Fridge or mini fridge
Step 1: Clean and Sand Door
First, turn off the fridge and remove the door. If this is your first time, removing a door, take care to remember the placement of the screws, etc.
After we removed the door from the fridge, we cleaned it with soapy water.
Once dry, we applied painters tape along the very edge of the handles and lock as well as the seal.
We then took the clean taped door outside for some sanding with 220 grit fine sand paper. We then wiped the door with a wet cloth and allowed to dry.
Step 2: Paint
Please remember to clean off your work surface very well before spraying. This paint sets quick and can be difficult to clean up. Also remember to spray in well ventilated areas. The particles from the spray can be a big problem if you don't allow enough room.
We decided to apply one coat and then wait for an hour to apply a second coat. Intially I thought it would only require two coats, but after 24 hrs I could still see some of the deeper scuffs and a white tinge. I applied two additional coats an hour apart to smooth out any unevenness.
Step 3: Complete
We actually ended up spraying the table for the kids to play on. This is a very easy and cheap way to get a few extra miles out of old furniture or just to have fun with the kids.
I hope that everyone comes up with even cooler ways to use this on other projects.
