Faking a Counter Depth Refrigerator

The refrigerator that came with this house is a great quality, newer model that we are thrilled not to have to replace.  The only trouble with it is that, like most refrigerators, it's full size means that it sticks out into the room several inches farther than the countertops.  In a perfect world we would have paid for a cut out to be built into the wall behind the refrigerator, allowing us to keep the full storage capacity of a normal sized refrigerator while getting the look of a built in or counter depth.  Alas, that wasn't an option, so we decided to see if we could make it at least *look* more like a built in...



See how far out a full depth refrigerator usually juts into the room?  


This is what we're going to try to pull off by framing in the upper cabinet, making it flush with the front of the refrigerator to give it an intentional look.  Let's hope it works!






Stay tuned for next week's reveal.

Happy Friday!
