Turn An Old Refrigerator Into A Fun Outdoor Party Cooler And Bar

Do you have an old fridge that you’ve been thinking about throwing out? Before you do, check out this super cool  idea from Instructables on how to re-purpose  it and turn it into an amazing  outdoor cooler and party bar.

The idea was created by Matt2 Silver.  And the great thing about the project is that it’s super cheap to create.  He said it will cost about $40 in addition to the old refrigerator. You basically just need to get the following items:

  • Old pallets (you can likely get for free)
  • Spray paint
  • Caulk
  • Plumbing fittings
  • Two 2″ X 4″s
  • Casters

It took him about two days to build, but the effort is well worth it.   When done, you’ll have a unique cooler that will hold a ton of drinks, a prep area, and lots of storage space.

Even if you don’t have an old fridge, you can likely get one for almost nothing by searching Craigslist.  It doesn’t have to work, and most of the time people will give it to you for free if you come and pick it up.

Go here for the full instructions on how to make the cooler.
