The Fridge Doors

My eyes have been opened.  Not everyone, it seems, plasters their fridge doors with postcards and magnets and recipes.  Some prefer the sleek, clean, pure look of a bare fridge.  Other poor souls do not even have the option of adorning their doors, their fridges being non-metallic or elegantly disguised as cupboards. 

To all of you who weren’t able to join in the competition, I promise the next competition will be more inclusive.

Now before I share the fridges with you, let me point to towards my Flickr Fridge Set where where we can   ooooh and aaaahh and puzzle over the finer details of the fridges individually.  Wonderful idea, Lucy.  🙂

On to the doors!

Zoe – Progressive Dinner Party

Canberra, Australia

Love that Zoe’s 4 year old son’s to do list includes “Woch Woms anD Goit” i.e. watch Wallace and Grommit.  A boy with his priorities in the right place.

  1. LOVE IT! Sorry I couldn’t get the fridge pic in on time but it’s so low down I don’t stick things on it. If you had asked for a pic of my pin board/s however, you would have been in for a shock…

  2. Your pictures make me miss my old fridge. The new one hides behind a wooden door and the washing machine is in the utility room downstairs so no good as an alternative. Might have to invest in a magnetic notice board…

  3. “Sleek”, “clean”, “pure” are words I’d love to use about my house and kitchen. But boy oh boy I’m so far off that mark.

    Love the fridge round-up Wendy.

  4. Thanks for such a fun idea – I actually found some magnets I had forgotten about in shuffling for this event and now I feel like going out and buying more – such cool ones in this round-up!

  5. That’s a fun gallery! Our fridge is behind an oak cupboard door, matching the kitchen we gained with the house. Our old fridge freezer is black and is in the utility room – it used to be plastered with freebie magnets from felix cat food tins!!
    This has inspired me to find some fun new magnets and postcards to celebrate the new fresh blue colour scheme!


  6. This was so much fun seeing what other people put on their fridges! I have lots more sayings in the same set made by my sister – would be happy to send you some!


  7. Too much fun! Thanks for getting this going. I love that we are all incidental collage artists when it comes to our fridges (or washing machines, as the case may be)… How creative!

  8. How Great! I wish I had saw this in time to participate. Love the pictures. Mine is covered in magnets, recipes, a need to buy stick out list, and a knife holder that also holds your small chopping board, and a ton of magnets my sis gave me, lol, she works at a fertility center so they are of the phases of change a fetus goes through, lol.

  9. Love the fridge doors. I am actually starting to hate my fridge – not only does it have a non-magnetic door but it is also way too small. Time to trade it in for a lovely one that I can decorate. Incidentally, I have a pin-board in the kitchen instead which is bursting to the seams with photos/notes/post cards etc…
