Too much wood! Norcold refrigerator reface...

I like wood...but with wood on (4) sides of a compact travel trailer....sometimes I feel like a termite.

This season we are making some design changes. I took the Norcold fridge door insert out....flipped it over and covered it in black leather.

Here's the before and after....

IMO it's a better balance with the black microwave & range hood! Nothing like a little kitchen up-dating at little cost

If your grandson loves Legos.....he'd love a Norcold refrigerator. It snaps together too....lol. The frame molding that holds on the door insert just snaps off.

Sometimes, less is more. I, too, think the black fridge looks better . . . more balanced. Good Job!

Looks great. It's real leather? What'd you spend for that, $7?

Nahhhh....it's the fake leather. Should hold up better.....next to the A/C, the fridge is the hardest working thing in the TT. I make sure they're both kept clean.

Dangerous project, though....I came real close to getting a splinter more than once. Chipped the clearcoat I'd just put on my fingernails.

Looks good Mr. Butchers! I agree and like the added black of the appliance to tie in with the others to break things up.

Looks nice Threebutchers, but I don't think I could handle getting the veggies out of a crisper drawer that's at floor level. I didn't know fridges were mounted under the countertop in some rigs.
