Default Kegerator Build

I went to Home Depot got everything I needed and converted my Danby Compact Fridge to a Kegerator. What you think?

Looks like you have plenty of room in there for two kegs. Very cool.

Get that liner off there then! Some people just use black tape to cover the exposed foam from the liner and it looks fine for as much as it's seen.

I literally just finished replacing the door on my Kenmore minifridge. I went to home depot and got a 4x4 sheet of 1/8" hard board. They gave me the two cuts to get it down to what was supposed to be 19 3/4 x 30 5/8. Total cost was $7.50 canadian. I plan to paint it either white or maybe paint it with that chalk board paint.

I placed the old fridge door cover ontop of the piece of hardboard and screwed them together with the old holes. Took out all the screws, put the weather stripping on the hardboard and screwed it onto the fridge door. Almost all the holes lined up. My impact took care of making new holes for the few old holes I missed.

Plexi was going to cost in excess of $40. I would have used a piece of counter top material but they only sold that in 4x8 sheets and it was close to $100 / sheet. They also had actual fridge siding there in 4/8 sheets but it was around $50 / sheet. I didn't want the rough fridge texture on the inside incase I paint it with chalk board paint.

A bit off topic, but even if you paint a textured fridge surface with chalkboard paint, it still comes out relatively smooth. I did 3 coats on the outside of my kegerator and you can barely notice any texture.

And also wouldn't you want the chalkboard on the outside so you could see whats on tap without opening the door?
