Turn it into a Chalk Board
Forget smart fridges, you can create your very own shopping list on your fridge with this creative idea. Simply apply primer and chalkboard paint to your dull-looking appliance and turn it into a drawing board, shopping list or a way to prevent the kids from drawing on the walls! Ok, so it’s not as high tech, but it’s a whole lot cheaper and gives your kitchen a personal touch. Give it a try!
