STEP 1

Thanks to Modern Master Metal Effects Paint. And yes this does take some courage. But I have never been afraid of paint. It can be re-painted just as easily. Frightened? No...

STEP 2

I sanded the entire surface and painted it with a good bonding primer.

STEP 3

Using a Wood Frosting puddy I sculptured leather bands.

STEP 4

The buckles were also sculptured.

STEP 5

I painted the fridge with a deep chocolate.

STEP 6

I used a crackle medium and when dry I painted the entire surface a scarlet.

STEP 7

Hand sculpturing the bands and the buckles.

STEP 8

The sculptured bands and buckles were painted a deep iron metal effects paint from Modern Masters.

STEP 9

Rusty and corroded iron bands and buckles. Copper patina is painted on the rivets.

STEP 10

"The main body is painted with a damask stencil in nine layers of four different reds.
I matt coated the old rusty iron bands and buckles, then waxed and buffed the damask. This has turned out seriously awesome next to my red cabinetry."

STEP 11

Corroded and loved.

STEP 12

I love the detail on my new vintage steamer trunk refrigerator. Go ahead I know you want to roll your eyes.
Take your best shot. If you like it I am humbled, If you don't go ahead I can take it.

STEP 13

These pictures might put things into perspective. It makes me smile. So just that makes it worth the effort.
