The new year always does something to me: as you've seen, I've been posting some organizational posts of late, evidence that January has once again put me in a 'MUST GET EVERYTHING CLEAN AND ORGANIZED' mood. And while I was looking around at things I wanted to clean up or organize, the refrigerator kept jumping into my line of sight.
I found this at Michael's and used a coupon to get it for a steal:
See, I want to stop using the refrigerator door as a command center. It's not set up for that and even if it was, the fridge is far too popular around here to use as an information station. So, I want to pretty it up. I bought the frames you see above and went to the dollar store to grab a few more, on the cheap. Once I had a bunch of frames, I used craft paper and made a size template of the fridge door. I laid out the frames on top to figure out what should go where.
Then, I used my Americana DecoArt paints to give them a little color, specifically blue.
After the frames dried, I glued magnets to the back.
All that was left to do was put a few pictures in... and I love it.
Even though there isn't a 'before' picture, doesn't this just make you happy? Look at those faces... they happily greet me every time I go to the fridge. Which, let's be honest here, is a lot. :)
