Here are a few of the thing I have made or revamped for my kitchen. My g/f was allowed to pick the design of one room.....the kitchen. The design.....coca-cola.
Our ghetto fridge. A friend at work gave this to me when I bought my house last year. It had been in storage since god knows how long & it was FILTHY. Its missing those metal things on the doors that hold things in. The bottom shelve would cave in if it didnt have two drawers, some of the rubber is missing around the door & there is no light. Sooooooooo since it is pretty much going to be trashed when I can afford a new spiffy stainless steel one why not paint it right?
Its not completed yet......I couldnt find appliance paint in the obnoxious red I wanted so I used primer recomended by a dude at Homo Depot....unfortunately I didnt listen to myself and sand it prior so I had to basically redo the whole top portion because when I took off the tape I was using for lines the primer came with it.
When finished it will look like the old machines with the 5cent dispencers.
The rug in front is made from hot pads bought at the dollar tree, sewn together. Im going to eventually paint them to look like pop bottle caps

the little box on top of the fride holds my extra dish sponges & was made of a recycled 12pack case.........you'll notice I'm notorious for reusing trash. I cant help being a hippy, it helps combat the consumerist that has pretty much been beaten into me by todays media
I have also taken old soda bottle crates & turned them into a spice rack & storage for all my teas
