Several times, while cleaning and organizing my studio and mini stash, I considered throwing it away. But I always kept it, thinking that 'someday' I would recycle it into a more modern version of itself. 'Someday' kept getting put off -- I think I was concerned I wouldn't like the end result. Finally, I decided to roll up my shirt sleeves and take the plunge. I'm glad I did!

I first removed the handles to the side-by-side doors and then cut a square hole in the left side door.
Then I fashioned the water and ice dispenser using wood, black paper coated with sealer, a straw, and polymer clay.
I reattached the handles and painted the entire outside black. It took several coats. Then I sealed it with Krylon Matte Sealer.

The next project, of course, is stocking the fridge. :D
