Saw a beautiful magnetic-cover scene of Refrigerator Art for only $110 recently.

Since my kitchen is rustic themed, I thought maybe a bucolic scene of cattle grazing in meadows might be nice. But not at that price!

Looks like I'll have to go with my previous DIY choice: tape an old piece of lace fabric, taking care to overlap the edges onto the appliance's sides - you're only going to decorate the front - and then spray paint quickly and lightly over the lace on the front and then remove it immediately. And carefully. The lace won't have time to stick but you'll be left with a lovely pattern on the door.

Or you could even use butcher paper or some alternative to cut out your own design, specific or free form. It's certainly cheap and easy, and could be lovely.

1. Nice idea to decorate the refrigerator.

Do you have a link to that cover that you saw so that I get an idea of what it looks like? I agree that $110 is too expensive, but I have an old frig and it could use sprucing up.

2. It's on my ebay watch list just so I could look at it a few more times before deleting.

So I can get around to sending it to you asap, or I seem to recall it came from the Collections, Etc. ebay store if you want to do a search for 'magnetic cover refrigerator art'. A handy artist could just recreate a similar scene. But at those prices, I'd rather save the $ toward a new frig instead.

Please check your messages in a minute for something on a different subject.

4. I am having trouble finding many options.

I would be inclined to paint something on my refrigerator instead of paying for those. But this is cheap, and is even about as cheap as the paint to do it would be (and would be really easy to recreate with paint):

3. http://www.ebay.com/itm/400690720289?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&var=670236558832&ssPageName=STRK%3

Turns out the cow theme is on the overstock.com ebay store. Still beautiful, still way out of my reach.

CollectionsEtc. has an excellent selection, however, if you don't want to do the lace/cutout method.
