How to: Make a Mini fridge that's Fun, Cool, and Functional

by koolatron

If you’re looking for a way to make your mini fridge more fun and functional, check out this easy DIY project. All you need is some high-quality paint and an afternoon to create a decorative and functional space. Gather Your Materials You’ll need the following materials for this project: a Mini fridge (or any other appliance you want to paint). High-quality enamel paint. A paintbrush. Masking tape (to protect the surface around your fridge). A stencil if you want to create a design on your appliance or use it as inspiration for painting.

Start with a high-quality cooler.

The most important thing to consider when looking for a cooler is the size of your drinks. If you want to store beer bottles, look for one with a drain plug so you can wash it out easily. If you prefer cans, make sure there’s enough room in your cooler’s ice compartment and storage space. You’ll also want wheels if you plan on moving the cooler around much—and they will make it easier if you need to carry heavy items like bricks or yoga mats inside! For this project, we recommend using Rubbermaid containers because they’re durable and easy to clean; however, any other container would work just as well as long as it has an opening near its top where cold air can escape when not filled with food items like soda cans or bottled water (or whatever else)

Choose a colour scheme.

Choose a colour scheme that will match the decor of your room. If you have little mini fridge scattered about in different rooms around your house, it’s best to pick one colour and stick with it. That way, guests will know that the mini fridges are part of the same set and can use them interchangeably throughout the house. Please choose a colour scheme that will match the room’s decor where you will use it most often.

This is especially important if there are limited spaces to store your mini fridge and if they’re likely to be used by many people (say at school or work). In this case, I’d recommend choosing something with no pattern so that no matter where someone places their mini fridge down on top of yours, they’ll still be able to see whether it’s full or empty easily enough! If possible, though – avoid using red as this tends to make things hot and make them feel heavier than normal too!”

Buy some paint.

You’ll need to get some paint. You can find it at any hardware store or order online if you want to look around. There are many options when painting your mini fridge—you can buy one designed specifically for metal or plastic or something that adheres well to multiple surfaces. If you’re unsure where to start, ask an employee at the store what would work best for your project.

Remove everything from the cooler.

Remove everything from the cooler. You’ll need to remove all items from your old mini fridge and clean them out before moving on. If you have any residual food/drinks left there, do not use them for this project! Remove all labels and stickers from the cooler. Ensure every label has been removed so that none of your paint will bleed through onto it when you’re done with Cooler-Lite Paint (get yours here). Clean the inside of the cooler thoroughly using warm water, mild dish soap and a soft sponge or cloth.

Clean the cooler and let it dry.

Once you’ve assembled your mini fridge uk, it’s time to clean it up and ensure there aren’t any lingering hairs or fibres. If you have a damp cloth or paper towel handy, wipe down all surfaces of the cooler. Please ensure no smudges or smears on any part of the cooler; this will be important when we move on to our next step. After the cleaning is done, let everything dry completely before moving on!

Paint the inside of the cooler first with primer, then with your base colour.

First, you need to paint the inside of your cooler with primer, then your base colour. Primer is used to provide a smooth surface for painting and cover up any imperfections that may have been on the original product. After priming, you can use your regular base coat colour for the outside of the cooler. Make sure both sides are covered with paint before moving on to another step! Let everything dry completely before moving on to the next step. After your cooler has dried, you can paint the handles. First, use a small brush to apply two coats of paint to each side of the handle (or in whichever direction you want). Then let it dry completely before moving on!

Wait until the paint dries, and then tape off any areas that don’t need to paint black.

It is important to wait until your paint has dried before taping off areas that don’t need to be painted. This will prevent any wet paint from getting onto the part of the cooler that you want white. It is also a good idea to tape off all areas that you don’t want to be painted black because it will be easier for you to get an even coat of paint if there are no lines or bubbles underneath where they could show up on top when dry. If you forget and accidentally get wet paint on parts like handles, hinges, or bottom panels, it should not be a problem as long as you do not try to touch them while they are still wet (and remember how much fun it was when we were younger.

Paint the outside of the cooler next. Apply primer, then your base coat. Be careful to cover all areas, even those that won’t be black, such as handle slots or hinges.

Apply primer, then your base coat. Be careful to cover all areas, even those that won’t be black mini travel fridge, such as handle slots or hinges. When you’re done painting, let it dry overnight before moving on to the next step. Peel off any dried tape before you apply the second coat of paint to avoid peeling.

Paint from the inside or dried tape from the outside. To avoid peeling or stuck-on tape. You’ll want to ensure that your tape is completely dry before applying the second coat of paint. If you need to leave the box for a few days before applying the second coat of paint. Store it upright so no water can collect in any corners. If you get some paint on your fingers while removing the tape, wash them immediately with soap and water. Don’t worry about getting paint on anything else, though—it’s easy enough to clean up with soap and water too!
