Go Ahead & Introduce Yourself To The Chalkboards That Will Soon Be Decorating Your House
I like this idea for a busy family! What a great cost-cutting measure too, buy the cheap white fridge, or one that has rub marks or scratches and are drastically marked down, then paint with chalkboard paint. you could even order the stainless steel handles from the manufacturer if you still want a touch of stainless.
To paint over ANY surface, without sanding, use a product called 'ESP Easy Surface Prep', available at hardware and paint shops. Wipe on, wipe off and paint in 90 minutes. Works well over enamel paint , without having to sand. SAVES HOURS of work.
