FABBY: New Fridge

Hello everyone, how are you all?..hope you have a terrific week!

I'm showing for Metamorphosis Monday, my new fridge, a Panasonic-Inverter which has the freezer in the bottom, and the before was a white Frigidaire, made in the USA.. and a fridge for a long time to come! We sent it to our daughter Alexandra for her new place, as a second fridge.

The Before pic with the old Frigidaire, built in the far right, next to the entrance door. This is a picture from a post I did last year about my Total Kitchen make over.


I'm participating on Between Naps on the Porch

The Frigidaire, proudly made in the USA. We've had it for fourteen years and it works perfect, so I know this one will last for ever!

Here is the new Panasonic-Inverter style with the freezer in the lower part of it. I find it more comfy, than the classic ones.
We had to cut the doors of the upper cabinets since the new fridge is taller and raise the shelf as well. Therefore, we had to add a pull up door to it as you can see here. Luckily, all I had there before, fitted perfectly back in it!
Although it's not a big fridge it's just fine for the two of us. Europeans have used this style for a while, already. I'm glad they are sold here in Ecuador now too. I also have another old fridge in the laundry room. I little pug in the door is from the g'girls, lol..
A side view. We also liked it that it's silver and goes well with our double ovens, cook top and dish washer.

Thank you so much in advance for coming over, my sweet and generous friends.

Thank you Susan for having me at your fabulous Metamorphosis Monday Party, which I love, as I get so many great ideas from such talented bloggers that always display on MM.

I love fridges with freezers with freezer o. The bottom. It makes such good sense. I had this kind in England and my mother had one when I was growing up.
Yours looks very stylish!

Fabby como a veces uso la tablet no puedo traducir por lo tanto te pediría que pongas un traductor al principio del lado derecho, de este modo todos podríamos entender correctamente. Si de freezer se habla te digo que es muy importante tenerlo, yo lo uso mucho incluyendo uno bajo mesada.
Beso y disculpa la sugerencia.

Love the freezer on the bottom. I have one as well. I like that this seems more narrow and fits nicely in that spot.

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Fabby,

That is a perfect choice and a very convenient one. We have a similar one, as far as top and bottom but mine is wide and opens as one door; not two. Great for large platters if you prepare food for larger crowds.
Enjoy yours and your daughter will still get a lot of life out of the Frigidaire.

Pamela Gordon said...

That is a beautiful fridge! I'm sure you will enjoy all it's features. I think I would get a bottom freezer one the next time as well. Have a great week! Pamela

Elna said...

This is much better I think.

Hi Fabby,
How wonderful for you..You are really going to enjoy having the freezer on the bottom. I have two fridges one in the kitchen and the other in the garage. The bottom freezer is so nice I miss not having it in the house fridge.
Have a sweet week, Elizabeth

Hi Fabby: It's always so much fun to get a new appliance, and your new fridge is beautiful. Glad that you were able to shorten the space above it and rehang the door to work--it all looks so lovely. Take care, and have a fantastic new week!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Very nice, Fabby! ANd your cabinets are stunning, by the way....

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Fabby, what a gorgeous chic kitchen! I love the cabinets.
I want to get a new frig too, but my 24 year old one is going strong!!!
Beautiful kitchen!!!

Liz said...

You have an amazing kitchen. Those cabinets are so unique! The stainless is such a huge improvement.

We got a bottom freezer this last time. I like it.

Have a great week!

What a wonderful looking fridge, Fabby! I would love to have a new one and since I'm so short, I think I'd really like the freezer on the bottom.
Your kitchen is so beautiful too.

Suzy said...

Love the new fridge, Fabby. It looks great in your kitchen! I've been tempted by friges with the freezer in the bottom, but have been afraid to take the plunge. By the way - your kitchen cabinetry is beautiful!

the cape on the corner said...

yay! i know how exciting a new fridge can be...we had a hideous tan one with the "wood" handle...and no ice maker. yeesh.

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

Your new fridge looks marvelous! Congratulations! We used to have one with the freezer on the bottom - it was great when the children were littler. Love the stainless steel looks great with our cabinets. I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

Linda Primmer said...

How lucky you are Fabby. I think it is awesome. They are definitely the latest style. i am sure, you are enjoying all of the great features.

kitty said...

What a great fridge for your kitchen, Fabby! I like the freezer on the bottom although I don't have one. Enjoy, sweet friend!

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...


Your new fridge looks beautiful. I love how you were able to make it fit.


Judy Bigg said...

Great new refrig Fabby. I plan to make my next refrig one that has the freezer at the bottom. Thanks for sharing and bet you will make or buy wonderful food to go inside.

La Vie Quotidienne said...

this type of fridgerator is so much better than a side-by-side. You have such a lovely kitchen...the wood is extradinay. Beautiful!

On Crooked Creek said...

Love your new fridge!!! Your cabinetry is gorgeous!!! Our 10 year old fridge bit the dust and a new one was delivered On Crooked Creek for Mother's Day!!! The top has French Door openings and the bottom is the freezer! I, too, love my new fridge!!!

Jacqueline said...

Your new fridge is beautiful! I can't believe they were able to cut the cabinets and raise the shelf and have it look so perfectly! I am sure you will love the new design!

Crystal Grandeur said...

Hi Fabby your new fridge looks nice and i like your spacious kitchen too...:):)

podso said...

Fabby it looks wonderful. I too have a freezer in the bottom and just love it! Makes it far easier for my tall husband to reach into the frig. Hope you are doing well!

laurie said...

She is a beauty! I'm sure it is somewhere on your blog, but I've never seen your kitchen ceiling. The little glimpse I got made me want to see more. It looks beautiful! laurie

Sherry said...

What a nice fridge! Thank you for your sweet comments and thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!

Lucia said...

The fridge looks fantastic! I love when fridges have the freezer at the bottom. :)

Richella said...

Congrats on the new fridge--that's a big purchase! The stainless steel looks really good in your lovely kitchen. I love the idea of the freezer on the bottom--makes sense to have the part that you use most often at eye level!

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

You.Are.Going.To.Love.This.Fridge, Fabby! I'm so happy for you. We got ours several years ago, and I will NEVER go back to a side-by-side (which I didn't like after Day 2!!). May it be filled with good food for happy family times for many years! ~Zuni

Shelia said...

I'll bet you're loving your new fridge! Thanks for popping in to see me. Have a wonderful weekend.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Thanks so much for sharing on BeColorful. This looks just so perfect there. What a beautiful kitchen. I was trying to see more of that ceiling, border? in one of the top images. Very intriguing.

Cristina Garay said...

I love the freezer at the bottom too.
Beautiful kitchen, Fabby!
