DIY Updated Mini Fridge

So we drink a lot of beer in this family (of 2). 

Justin also has a lot of rum and cokes. 

So because of our alcoholism (jokes), our fridge tends to get over run by drinks. 

Solution! Mini fridge!

We graciously had some family friends give us one of their old mini fridges. And to put it nicely, it didn’t look all that great.

So we put up with it’s appearance for a while, and now that we moved, Justin got fed up with looking at it.

So we DIY’ed the shiz outta that thing.

Here you have it –

DIY Updated Mini Fridge

Our furniture is all black, so we picked up some black spray paint, taped up all the seals and the back, & gave it a good coat all over!

Easy peasy!

We used Rust-Oleum Painters Touch Ultra Cover Spray Paint. Make sure you get one that adheres to metal & plastic.

Tape off the cords on the back and all the seams, and spray away. Give it a look over and see if it needs two coats. Make sure you give it plenty of time to fully dry before you move it anywhere. 

There you have it! A great new stylish place to store all your beer or whatever other beverages you like to enjoy.


  • Use a piece of cardboard to hold behind where you are spraying so the paint doesn’t get all over your deck (or wherever you are spraying)
  • Put a small piece of tape over the screws so they don’t get all gunked up. That way you can still get at them later if need be.
