This is an old 50's style fridge that a friends grandma had sitting on her back porch that hadn't been used in years. It was in pretty bad shape, but after finding out that it worked, I went ahead with the project. Anyway, I asked a lot of questions and got a lot of good advice here, so I figured I'd share the finished product with y'all.

This is what it looked like when I got it:

Here are a couple of my garage turned office/smoking room just for shits and giggles:

That's great! Cool SRV poster too!

That Fridge is great! Wish I'd thought of that as there was a similar one left in my house when I bought it.

Thanks guys! It's definitely a cool conversation piece. The only thing I'm still planning on doing is building some cedar shelves as the legs on the wire ones are robbing me of some space.

BTW, I found one of the "before" pics and added it above...
