Fridge Love.

20 Feb

I bet you’re wondering about the fridge. Never underestimate my craigslist skills. I found this little darling locally, 100 bucks and three days later she was in the back of a truck. I haven’t been able to find out very much about it but from what I have read it seems to be a 1951 model Fridgeidaire. It’s really in rather good condition except for some light finish issues on the door where it has been worn. So I’ve cleaned it all up and decided to have the outside repainted. The biggest drawback to the firdge is the teeny tiny freezer. No frozen pizzas for me! I have a feeling teeny tiny is something I am going to have to get used at ittybittybungalow.

The only other issue with the fridge is that I  think the gasket should be replaced. I called around and nobody was able to help me locally. However, I did find a place down in Texas that sells parts for antique appliances. I wrote them an e-mail and a super nice guy got me all set up with what I need. The only problem is the gasket is like 5 dollars a foot which comes out to be around 100.00 all said done and shipped. I have a hard time spending dough where I can’t see it and as you already know we just splurged on a stove so the gasket is going to have to wait.

In regards to the environmental impact of the likely to be inefficient fridge; I think it’s better to use the fridge then dump it into a landfill. That’s my stance and I’m sticking to it… well that- and its cute.

Enviroment: I’ll make it up to you later, how do you feel about thermal drapery panels?
