Our Found Objects…Found Art contest continues, with Kate’s entry, below. Just to be super-clear: We’ll publish all the entries online…and at the end, we’ll vote on a list of finalists. Kate writes:
Attached is a photo of a vintage fridge door that my husband found in a dumpster and brought home for me. I cleaned it up, gave it a fresh coat of paint and now use it as a magnet board in my home office. I love this fridge door’s retro shape, lettering and handle, and especially love using it in an unconventional way. It reminds me of a simpler time and drums up images of a 50’s house wife and vintage advertising directed at the 50’s house wife, which I find so kitschy and humorous. This fridge door just makes me happy and I love that it was saved from the dumpster and gets to live happily as a piece of art in my home.
