Danby has them. HD has them in Canada at least for $248. That's what I used this year.

Chalkboard paint could look cool and functional.

I don't see it on HD's american website either, but it's definitely available here. My apologies if I misled you.

Not a prob, thanks for the effort. I may just end up getting a used one and gluing some sort of wood paneling to it (barn wood?).

I wouldn't glue anything to the freezer. You'll burn it out. Newer freezers use the outer skin to dissipate heat.

Sears makes a 7 cu ft model in black. I looked for 5 cu ft too. Couldn't find one.

Yep. Don't clad your freezer.

I painted mine with chalkboard paint. Rolled it on with a 4" roller. If you looked at it closely you would never know I didn't' buy it that way. I did this to a brand new freezer. Sanded it a bit to take the gloss off the white, then primed with spray (Rustoleum), then rolled the black on. Easy.

OK, I finally read that somewhere on the kegerator thread, but thanks. I see a guy on there painted this one (post 1509) with gloss enamel and it looked really good, Maybe not as good up close, but the pics looked really nice. I want black with a mahogany stained collar, just don't think I have room for a freezer larger than 5 cu. ft. though. I'll just keep my eyes on CL and find a cheap one to paint and see how it looks. This is my goal (post 1230) in 5 ft. rather than 7.

They make appliance paint specifically for this purpose. You can get all types of finishes including gloss and even a hand hammered look.
