Altered Refrigerator and the giveaway winner

Hi there everyone ;)

Today I wish to share two things with you; the giveaway winner, and my altered refrigerator.
But first of all I have to excuse that this post is posted late. The reason is that my daughter has been sick and away from school, so I were unable to get to studio to get this done. So I am so sorry for this delay.

First up; the GIVEAWAY WINNER of BRAND NEW Ingvild Bolme products by Prima!

 
The winner of these brand new packs of embellishment, Junkyard Findings "Jeans Buttons" and "Street Signs", plus the shabby Chic Treasures "Cherub Fireplace" and "Sea" resins, goes to;


Congratulations Minxy! Please email me at ingvild@spinnvild.com to claim your price! ;O)

Thank you to everyone that participated in this giveaway and helped sharing the giveaway and new release! Appreciate the help of each one of you, and hop you will join the next giveaway for another chance.



I altered an old vintage dolls refrigerator I bought at a antique store here in Norway. I shared some peeks earlier on Instagram, plus one image in here and at Prima's blog earlier. But today I wish to share the whole project a bit more detailed. 
The idea for altering this refrigerator was to document my new year goals for 2014; to loose weight! So I figured out that a refrigerator should be a perfect project for this! 

Hope you will like it!


Vintage "Loosing Weight Refrigerator - by Ingvild Bolme
Above: The refrigerator how it looks outside. The refrigerator had the bottom cover missing, so I altered that space with taps, pipelines and faucet wheels from earlier releases from the Junkyard Findings line. The "Explore" sign on the top of the door is NEW Junkyard Findings "Jeans Plates", which comes in a pack with 7 different words on.


Above: The door is partly opened, and you can see a bit of whats inside of the refrigerator. The pewter metal corner is a NEW corner from Junkyard Findings, "Metal Corners".


Above: The door wide open, showing it's altered also inside of the door. Lots and lots of details are used from the Junkyard Findings line, NEW and previous releases! 


Above: The switch on the outside on the refrigerator, is a NEW  "Switched and Outlets" switch, which is a pack with 5 different designs of switches and outlets. FUN details to add to all sorts of projects! Both the light bulb and the fan are products from the NEW "Home Articles"!


Above: Inside of the fridge I made a clear shelf I wanted to look like a frosty glass plate. The Coca Cola bottles and tiny rusty bowl are antique findings I bought around in the world while traveling to teach classes. I think the Coca cola bottles comes from Canada, and the bowl from Puerto Rico.
The glass bottles are scraps bought different places.
The portrait of me is from 2012, which are written on the NEW Metal plate, also from the "Metal Corners" kit. The portrait is framed with a resin window frame from a previous release, and colored with Chalk Edgers "Shabby Tote". The photo shows how I look now, and how I am not happy to be like. I wish to loose weight, which is my goal for 2014.


Above: Yeah, that's how it ends.. "You Become What You Eat".. lol It's a message to myself. Even though there are also lots of other reasons behind all this, food is of course one of the reasons why I am not happy about myself anymore and wish to do some changes. So inside the fridge, it's a portrait of me, food and a personal message, a note to remember trough this year to be able to reach my goal!
The metal frame around my little message is also from the "Metal Corners" kit.


Above:  Inside of the door I made another reminder to myself. The "This Way" sign is from the NEW "Street Signs" kit which has 8 signs with different sizes and words on. The reason why I chose the "This Way" word and sign, is that it tells me that "this is the way I wish to be and look like". Even though this portrait of me on this door is from 1995 where I was way much younger.. lol ... it still reminds me of how I felt back then, so much happier with myself, the weight I should be in, still, even though I am not in the same age anymore... 
The metal frame is from last release, the Junkyard Finsings "Water Pipe Frames".
The NEW paper clip is from the new "Office Metals", which is a fun kit with total 7 parts, including a metal binding mechanism for a office ring binder! FUN for all kinds of projects, including layout to put on top of photos, note cards etc. The kit can be viewed here.
The "Happiness" sign is again a "Jeans Plates" sign, where I added gesso inside the word to make it pop. This sign reminds me of what happiness can be, that the time the photo were taken was a time where I felt more happiness then I do now regarding weight.


Above: Here you can see the details I added on the inside of the bottom part of the fridge.  There are loads of "Pipe Line Parts", "Faucet Wheels", "Water Taps" etc from last release. These are all SO FUN to play with!!! Together with a bit glue you can create so much fun with it, like here where I made a water leaking effect, as the fridge is broken and needs a plumber to drop by ;) I do know though that a fridge does not look like this inside, but that can be a bit of the fun with this, to do something different and unreal with the projects we make. It makes it all a bit extra interesting, right?


Above: On the outside and bottom of the fridge, I added a outlet from the NEW "Switched and Outlets" pack. You can also view two of the switched form the same pack on the floor on this image.


This was all about my fridge... ;O)
Please let me know which of the Junkyard Findings you like the best?! 

Thank you for stopping by, hope to see you all back again soon.

*hugs and smiles*
Ingvild

This is so beautiful! I love all the little treasures throughout your 'frig'. But, I have to say that my favorite item has to be the 'switches and outlets'. They are totally adorable and would be easy to use in almost any project.
Thank you for sharing with us. The Frig is just gorgeous! and I wish you success on the weight loss, and do hope you find that happiness in yourself. Your work is wonderfully creative, and you inspire many, many people!
