DIY Fridge Mats

These fridge mats are so adorable!!
I love them!

They just dressed up my plain ole fridge. Well, it is just a fridge... 

Am I so desperate to decorate something, that I decorate my fridge? Yep! I guess so!

I have to tell you that this was not my plan for tonight's post.

The plan was to do another awesome frame post!  I had this idea, but I needed Hubby to cut something out for me.

Well, that plan was supposed to happen this afternoon when we got back from working at the apartments.

When we got back I showed him everything I wanted. So good, so far! He said no problem! Oh wait...The saw is at the apartments! Really? Are you kidding me?  We were just there! Ugh! 

Ok, another day.... Hubby is overnight two nights a week, so that means, it won't be happening til this weekend. (If I'm lucky.) We'll see.

On to Plan B. Not that I actually had a Plan B...

These things have been on my counter since we went to IKEA back in February.

I know, I know.  And when I realized how EASY this was. Ugh... I don't want to talk about it. :P

Anyway, they are just plastic placemats. The neutral ones on top I picked up at the Dollar Tree, but I was going to have to cut and tape them together to fit my fridge.

So, when Hubby and I saw those bright and springy ones at IKEA it was a no-brainer, plus they were more square like my fridge shelves.

These will be nice and easy to clean. If there's a spill, I can just take out the mat, clean it up and slap it back in.

I took a peek in the fridge, to start this little project only to find this nastiness... yuck!

I don't even know what that is. I don't want to know. So, I guess I'm cleaning the fridge out tonight too.

That's fine. 

The first shelf I did, was super duper easy. Cleaned it up took the sticker off the back and slapped it down. It fit perfectly! No kidding!

The first one was so easy, I only had to do a bit of trimming on the rest. All I did was mark it, measure it, draw a line and cut.

I'm sure you are overwhelmed with the difficulty of this project, but trust me if I can do it you can! (Oh, did you note the hint of sarcasm?? :D)

Okay, all done! Awesome, right??
I really love the way it makes the fridge look so clean and fresh! The items seem to pop off the shelves.

Maybe Hubby won't have such a hard time finding things in the fridge? One can hope. :)
