If you have followed my blog, you know that I had a massive hole in the kitchen wall.

The project is made from recycled douglas fir.

I painted the stainless fridge trim of the fridge with black epoxy paint.

After the fridge install, I was left with a gaping hole above it.

Here is the finished shot with the area trimmed out. Brass pulls.

I am very happy with this project!

Looks Sweet!

I have always wondered, can you do this on any fridge, or did you buy a specific one?

Great job. I really like seeing you use the fur. That stove is a winner to!

Thanks for the comments.

FunnelStudio: This fridge is designed to accept the panels. I have seen an article on FineHomebuilding where the author attached the panels to a regular fridge using aluminum angle pieces.

Super nice! You should be happy. I think it’s really cool to have the fridge not be a fridge in a kitchen. Especially a smaller one. What issue of Fine Homebuilding was it?

Nice work on finishing that hole. This look much better and great use of re-cycle lumber. It all worth it if it can only keep the beverages cold. Blkcherry
