I went to Posterbrain as well thanks to Jon's research. Mine are 46.6 x 20 and two of them cost me $70 including shipping w the matt laminate. Apparently the shipping is per order rather than per print since they just charged me $6 total for shipping.

Ok so I messed up or the numbers change I thought the waterfall was 14 apparently not should have been 15. Still like 17 though!

Jon, did you remove the original fridge door panel and put the poster under plexiglass? We met a nice couple from KY at the LBL Rally named Danny and Tammie who did that, and it looked great.

There aren't many places to hang a picture in a Scamp 13, so that fridge panel is some "prime" real estate. There was someone else who put a Boundary Waters map on their reefer door, and posted it a couple years ago. That looked great too. Sorry, I can't remember who.

The door panel for my 5 cu ft refrigerator is a piece of 1/8" oak finished plywood. No plexiglass. I slid the photo into the slot the plywood sits in; there was enough room to slide it in on top of the plywood. Because it is a bit loose, and has slipped out of the frame, this winter I plan to remove the plywood & use spray dry mounting adhesive to attach the photo.

Sure looks nice, Jon. Thanks for the clarification. I'm guessing that the "laminated" version doesn't require the extra layer of protection provided by the plexiglass.

Thanks for the information. My door panels match my cabinets. Not sure if I want to change. But I might. I don't use the dinette much. I'm thinking about taking it out and putting in a smaller table and two office chairs . At that point I could appreciate some art work.

accident...

I did this after an "accident" (I taped something to the fridge once and the finish came off when I took the tape off....leaving a grey strip where that was)

I looked around and found a map of the area I most often camp in (a chamber of commerce type giveaway)....wrapped it around the panel and slid it back in.....comes in handy when discussing a route/place with somebody....and it's right at eye level

I can change it out for something else in minutes if/whenever I want...

I vote for #15. The composition(s) seem to work as a whole or taken as two separate photos. Great idea.

We hung both #9 and #15 in the Scamp and then went with #9 because it worked better with the stock cushions, etc. A complete blog post will be published the afternoon of November 5th, but in the mean time...

I was surprised how quickly there was a high degree of consensus. Donna, you'll want to get the blog post on Wednesday for the secret details.

All of them are beautiful.
I will say, I'm jealous of your big refrigerator!
Happy camping. Looking forward to the "big reveal."

Just looked in on this post. Wow...what an idea! I have the smaller 1.9 cu in refer but it still could apply. What a place for a montage of family pics as well. The only thing ours sits considerably lower so it wouldnt be of as much affect.

That REALLY looks good on your refrigerator though Jon!
