I can’t lie, this pamphlet on “25 decorating ideas for your second refrigerator” has been sitting in my house waiting to be blogged about for 4+ years.

25 ideas for decorating your second refrigerator

I purchased this mostly based on the small post-it on the front.


Then once I finally scanned the photos and sent them to Jenny, we started talking about “fridge blog” and even using that as a verb. (“When are you gonna fridge blog?”)

Here is the intro:

Before you begin… You might find it helpful to decide who’s going to use your second refrigerator the most. Then decorate with that decision in mind.
If your husband is going to us use it to store beer, decorate to match his personality. Make it bright and bold.
If it’s to be used by the children for pop, popsicles, watermelon and such, decorate it for their taste.
And if you’re going to use it for pre-party storage, you’ll probably decorate it like… Well, women have a mind of their own. And now, let us show you what we have in mind.

    This is amazing!!! What makes me most curious is… why does it have to be your *second* refrigerator? Why not your first one or only one? If you are kitschy enough to decorate your second one, surely you’re also kitschy enough to decorate your first.

    I have seen that pamphlet in person because I remember telling my mom I wanted to put the King of Diamonds on OUR fridge. You can probably guess what she said to that little suggestion.
