Painted Fridge

Post by Bigdaddy0 on Sun 10 Jun 2012, 3:03 pm

I am looking for some ideas to paint my Frigidaire super fridge. What makes this so special is that it is a product of General Motors Holden. The exterior is showing signs of wear and I'd like to have it painted, so I'm chasing ideas from you creative lot. Thanks happy modelling.

I pinched the old work fridge when it stopped working and hit it with a lick of paint for my paint storage cupboard.



I also did one for a friend years ago, it was about 60 years old, wooden framed and still worked. Painted that one "tiger mica", at friends request, then i did the old pink plastics a gunmetal grey with a wash of candy purple, which was only visible in the right light.
Your only limited by your imagination mate.

you could put a mural of some old Holdens on it, or just put a big old Holden logo on it?
Depends on what your into?
