$5 Fridge Makeover

I have a love/hate relationship with my stainless steel refridgerator.  While I love the look of stainless steel, I hate how hard it is to keep it clean!  I’m always wiping fingerprints and smudges off the doors and handles.  I saw these adhesive backsplash sheets at Dollar Tree and knew I’d found a solution to my problem.

Project estimate:
  • Adhesive backsplash (4) – $1 per sheet
  • Game pieces – on hand
  • Glue – on hand
  • Magnets – on hand
Total – $4 and up
Step one:  Peel the backing off the backsplash, and adhere it to the refrigerator.  Use a piece of cardboard or a credit card to smooth out the bubbles.

Step two:  Cut pieces to size and continue until the refrigerator is covered.

Step three:  Glue magnets to old game pieces.

There are different patterns of this adhesive backsplash available, so you could easily change this to match your decor.  This product is a very light foil-like material, so it was easy to apply and it clings well.  It’s not as thick as adhesive vinyl.  I like the pop of color and pattern it adds to my kitchen, don’t you?  And I love that I can easily and inexpensively change it when the mood strikes!
