Firkin Around...The Garage
|Sanding down the rusty, but trusty old Kenmore in the garage|
The first order of business was to remove two handles and a strip of chromed plastic from one of the doors. A few sheets of sandpaper had the pitting gone and removed ten plus years of rust accumulation from sitting outside in the garage. Florida's weather is notorious for rusting out anything made of metal that has been left outdoors for any period of time. The salt air and humidity had done a number on the finish, especially around the door edges where condensation tends to collect. That task completed, I washed the door gaskets with soap and warm water to remove the grime. Masking tape was applied to cover them up for painting.

Only a funky color would do for the beer fridge. Not anything way over the top, although the Krylon® Rich Plum was pretty cool looking. There were so many colors to choose from, but somehow the green shades kept calling out to my subconscious. And which shade? Pistachio Green! Dropping five cans in the cart, the purchase was made.
|Krylon says Pistachio but I say Nuclear Green|
|What a difference - It'll go another twenty years|
Annnnnd, if you were wondering, and I know that you were.....the answer is 'yes'! It will become a kegerator at some point in the future. For now, it will keep craft beers chilled and me happy. Cheers!
