DIY Vintage Refrigerator Magnets

 Recently as I was scrolling through my instagram, I came across a really fun reel by @homeliving5 showing a fun DIY that involved taking vintage prints and turning them into magnets for your refrigerator! I quickly saved it to my favorites and then to my surprise a few people actually sent me the same video in my instagram dm's thinking that I would love this project, which I did!

I had plenty of old gorgeous vintage prints in delicate frames laying in piles around the house waiting for me to find a home for them. 

I was so exited to finally find a place for these beauties and transform my refrigerator into a work of art...or maybe an art gallery.

I did have a few frames hanging around that were empty and I knew that I wanted to use those too. Years ago I wallpapered a room in my house with bible pages, I still had the old bible and I knew there were lots of beautiful prints inside.

It was fun turning the crinkly pages and finding the perfect prints for each frame.

This little print featuring three children carrying florals was absolutely darling and was a perfect fit for this frame.

This square frame felt more masculine, so I added a depiction of Cain and Abel.

I ordered a roll of Magnet adhesive tape from amazon. You can find the link here.

The process was extremely easy. Just cut the tape to your desired length, peel off the backing, and lay the sticky side down on the back of your frames.

Some examples....very easy.

Now, here are some real life photos. My husband and I have been married 17 years, and in all of those years we have never had a new refrigerator until recently, and I adore it! The stainless steel is black and the best part is the handles! Gold! My favorite color!

When we brought it home, I said that absolutely under no circumstances were we ever going to junk up the front with papers, receipts ect. Lol well I guess life happens and here it is in all its glory. Geez....

Anyways I stripped the fridge of all the unecessary paperwork and ta-da!

 The refrigerator has been transformed into an art gallery!

Well...not quite, but the vintage artwork magnets do make it look even prettier in my opinion.

I will probably be adding a few more frames when I come across them because the refrigerator that I saw on Instagram had even more magnets than mine, and it looked amazing!

 My son's artwork will always have a spot on my art gallery refrigerator. The painting of his that I just took down, I ended up framing and hanging it in the toy room. I'm sure that once school starts he will be bringing some more works of art home! 

In other news life has been so busy! So many projects over here! The kitchen is one of them, I can't wait to show you before and afters, but we are not done. You can see in the first photo that we just installed a beautiful new window but have no molding around it yet. Right now we are working a lot on the outside of our home as it is finally getting painted, so the kitchen has been neglected for right now.

I also finally made myself purchase a new computer because the old one was just not working anymore and I wasn't able to blog. I am not good with technology and honestly it is taking some time to figure everything out again! I haven't picked up my camera in 6 or 7 months so even that was an adjustment.

I will try to be more present on here but I am most active on my instagram especially in my stories, so definitely check me out over there too!

I've missed you all!
