The dry erase chalkboard fridge from Whynter that I discovered years ago is no longer available. However, you can easily and affordably create your own dorm-size chalkboard fridge with a standard appliance and chalkboard decals.
You simply peel and stick these removable chalkboard stickers to the door of your refrigerator, and you instantly turn it into a write-able surface. You can then later remove the decal without damaging the surface of your fridge!
Alternatively, you can make your own whiteboard fridge with a dry erase surface by applying dry erase stickers. These stickers are clear, so you can use them on black, white or stainless steel fridge doors without changing the look of the appliance. Cool, right?
As a result, you can choose from a variety of different compact refrigerator models, including shite, black or silver/stainless steel. This peel-and-stick concept also works for single door or 2-door models.
For example, here are some popular brands and models affordably priced at about $200 or less:
Markers to Write or Draw on Your Dry Erase/Chalkboard Fridge:
Need more neon dry erase pens? Get them here for less than $2 apiece instead of paying more at your local store, if they even have them.
And yes, liquid chalk markers work perfectly on dry erase boards too. In other words, you can easily wipe away the dry ink with a regular rag or cloth.
The neon brightness makes handwriting easier to read on black surfaces. Plus, you 10 different colors too. Therefore, you won’t get board, I mean bored.
Details on the Previous Model Whynter Write-on Compact 2-Door Fridge:
Here’s a cool “chalkboard” fridge that I just ran across. It’s the first compact fridge+freezer model that I’ve seen with a dry erase surface. I know, some of the single-door compacts do have what they call a freezer space. However, I don’t really count that, as it can’t accommodate more than the mini ice cube trays…
I’ve got a compact 2-door refrigerator myself, and I like it better than the single-door models because it has a “true” freezer. This feature comes in very handy if you need to make ice cubes, store ices cream or other freezables. This model also features an energy star rating. You won’t feel guilty about having a second fridge (if that’s what you’re getting).
Obviously, it’s great as a dorm room fridge as well because it doesn’t take up much space. That said, it has more versatility due to the separate freezer. It’s also perfect for a kid’s playroom if you need to store snacks or drinks because of the fun writable surface.
The dry erase surface makes it a good addition to office, workspace or garage as well because it doubles as a notepad and bulletin board. You could also turn it into a cool mini bar in almost any room. With the dry-erase surface, it can look more like a work of art than a regular appliance. =)
