polka-dot fridge

Sometimes I order stuff on the internet, then I forget about it, and THEN it's at my door when I get home.  Best*!

Today I got some matte gold vinyl.  

In case you don't know, or in case you can't tell in these pictures, I have the ugliest fridge in the world. I wish I had some before-before-before pictures (it was white, and covered in rust).  Then I tried patterned blue contact paper (hated it), considered a lot of different paint colors, and (on the suggestions of several dinner attendees) landed on matte black paint (which has also gotten very rusty).  

Here's my plain-but-rusty fridge.
This is the vinyl I got in the mail, and my favorite craft-tool, a 2 1/4" circle punch.

Here's the circles I cut - as many as I could get from a 12x24" sheet of vinyl.  It cost $2.99 on Amazon. This is the second time I've used vinyl film, and it's way cooler than contact paper: like a hundred times thinner, and just as easy to re-position or remove.  Definite recommend.

A little measuring, and 20 minutes later, and I sucessfully made my kitchen even busier than it was. Phew.
