I'm certainly no HVAC expert, but the threads I'm seeing suggest that any conversion might work better for initially converting a (already designed for and existing) freezer to a refrigerator first, then later converting back to a freezer.

You need to deal with both insulation and with the load on the compressor. An existing freezer will already have the necessary insulation and compressor system for freezing. Conversions from a freezer to a refrigerator mostly appear to primarily need a new thermostat, with both the insulation and compressor systems as overkill in a refrigerator mode.

Of course, if this is done as a DIY project, there probably wouldn't be any UL certification, and a question of insurance liability might also occur.
