Give Dad the "Coolest" Father's Day Gift!
For Father's Day this year, I built my husband a cooler stand to fit an insulated cooler. We love how it turned out. Its functional, fresh, and fun! See my blog for a DIY tutorial.
Best Dad ever!
This cooler stand is our new favorite patio accessory!
It began with a little cosmetic work on the cooler.
Nothing a hacksaw can't fix - cooler is ready for a new home.
I built a frame from 1x2's
The side frame gets assembled - my daughter paints.
The kids want to help, the cat needs petting....It's a zoo around here!
Ready for the final frame piece.
Panels get filled in.
All the panels are nailed and glued in place.
I grouted some bottle caps into the front panel. I love how it turned out.
This is a must. Bottle opener right on the front.
I love the drain, it is functional and adds so much character.
I also added a nice shelf so you have somewhere to set your glass when you need a refill.
Happy Father's Day!
