refurbishing fridges and stoves

Does anyone know of a great site for refurbishing/modernizing vintage fridges and stoves? I'm assuming the gas stove will be a cake walk but I have a feeling the fridge will have to be trashed in which case the door will end up being a decorative cupboard face lol...

fly the coop
Fig. to escape; to get out or get away. (Alludes to a chicken escaping from a chicken coop.) I couldn't stand the party, so I flew the coop. The prisoner flew the coop at the first opportunity.

Re: refurbishing fridges and stoves

I'm sure a search of the internet will turn up a few things. You may end up buying a new refrigerator and putting the old door on it. As for painting, I painted our white freezer black to match all the other appliances. I still have to make the new "vintage" metal signs that I will attach to the fronts. I'm going to paint them with POP chalky paint. One of the freezer signs will be the same ice cream cone I designed and painted on the food cart when we switched it over to hand dipped ice cream in waffle cones.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.
