I see $404 on the website, which means it's $404 in the store after "10% appliance sale" that runs repeatedly til the end of time.

Throw on a 10% off movers coupon from the Post Office, or ask for a 10% coupon on their website, or 10% military discount, or have them price match a 10% coupon from Home Depot or some other competitor.

$363.60 plus local tax.

Default Frigidaire FFC0923DW (FFCH09M5MW also has the same dimensions)

Frigidaire FFC0923DW will fit 7 cornies or 6 and a 20LB aluminum tank. There are a few different configurations that will work, but 4 cornies is the maximum on the floor without forcing more than I'm comfortable with.

Default Ice Cream Display Freezer Keezer

Got an Ice Cream Display freezer for free.

Did a quick and dirty conversion.

This holds 8 pin lock corny's or 10 with a mix of pin and ball.

I want to upgrade my small freezer to a larger one that actually fits 4 kegs. Plus I want to move it from the garage into the living room. But I don't like the plain white freezer in the living room. I rather have a black one and want to put two towers on top.
Since we always have a bunch of kids in the house I don't want the taps on the front.

Sears has one black. But it is pricy. $330.

Is there are a way to paint a white chest freezer? Or have people decorated them in any other way?

I am just looking for ideas on how to make a nice chest freezer which blends into the living room.

This is probably a better link to see ideas.

They make a black appliance paint that you could use.
However, there are some really amazing and creative ideas to make more of an inside "furniture" type piece.

It is a long thread, but will certainly give you ideas.

I painted mine black with the appliance paint. I think I used 2 cans for a 7 cu ft freezer and could have used 3. It was pretty easy but I did it in my dusty garage and did get a little dust in the paint. If you are going that way, just be careful of the dust.

My friend just purchased the 8.8 kenmore in black when they had a sale. I think he got it for under $250 so if you really want that one, just wait for their 15 or 20% off sales which happen often.
