This is another example of getting too excited and forgetting to take a before picture. I did this project about a year ago. In retrospect, I wish I had really planned it out and ordered better looking appliques instead of rushing and just getting stuff at Home Depot. Lesson learned. I am going to apologize for the next sets of picture because we haven't had a sunny day in awhile.
Here it is. When I was writing this post I thought maybe I should freshen up the paint. Then I realized I don't have any more Annie Sloan's Duck Egg and it would take a few days to get here. This is the perfect example of my complete lack of patience. This beauty looks pretty good for a whole year of rough handling without any wax on it.
I didn't have any dark wax when I did this project. So I mixed clear wax with dark brown paint to antique it a bit. At one in the morning, I think it was the best I could come up with. : ) I do wish I have another old fridge to do this project properly again and show you step by step. But in the mean time, I am quite content with it.
This is what it looks like on a normal day.
the perfect frame for Bella's arts.
Reminder of how beautiful life is.
Or how amazing love is.
