Make retro decoration for your fridge with paper stickers yourself
The retro refrigerators are currently a strong trend in kitchen equipment. But it does not cost a little. For this reason, you should think very well, whether such an investment really worth it or not. With matching paper stickers, you can also achieve wonderful results yourself.
When is the real retro refrigerator worthwhile?
Well, we know that the retro character of a refrigerator does not begin with its color. The specialized brands win real fans with unique designs and other extras.
But that still makes the purchase at a very high price not worthwhile. You need to find out for yourself which aspect of retro refrigerators you like most. If that's the color, which is often the case, then you can achieve a great effect with matching paper stickers.
This approach is also appropriate in other situations. You can thereby make a practice sample for the design. The retro refrigerators are striking. It may be that after a certain time of fascination they are perceived as too intrusive. By spicing up with paper stickers, you can let the retro style work on you. This will allow you to easily check whether the retro refrigerators are indeed your thing or not.

With a sponge you should wash well the places where the stickers should be attached. Then dry well. The clean surface is also a guarantee that your work gives good results.

Prepare paper sticker
Take a slightly larger piece of paper than the dimensions of the refrigerator. So you have a small reserve, if you have not measured something quite right. Place the sticker on the refrigerator surface without removing the protective film.
For this part of the job, you might well need the help of a second person. Otherwise you can temporarily fix the paper foil with magnets.
With a pen, you can now draw the exact frame, and then finally cut off the paper. Use the cutting knife for this. Now that you have cut out the sticker in the appropriate shape and color, you can slowly and carefully attach it to the refrigerator.
