One A Day: Day 3 and 4

Day 3- Paint the fridge
Day 4- Rest from being up late painting the fridge!

Mike did more work with this than me, but I was up late, way later than usual so I'll still rest!
The fridge before was very old, yellowish, and had rust spots (which are usually covered by magnets), last year we got a new black stove and dishwasher and have been wanting to paint the fridge to match. We did it last night after the kids went to bed. We covered everything w/ paper and plastic since it is spray paint. Mike had to make something out of styrofoam to put over the fridge, since we had to have the doors open all night and we wanted to be able to leave the food in (rather than use a bunch of coolers), so he covered both sides and the seal worked great- the doors were open all night and no cold air leaked out so the food was fine!

It looks like a black fridge! We are replacing the floor anyway, so didn't cover it much.
