File Cabinet Turned Beverage Caddy


I found this little file cabinet out on the road on garbage day. I brought it home with me.
I already have a file cabinet, but thought I could use this for something!

I lightly sanded it...

Then spray painted it yellow with outdoor paint.

My initial bright idea was to use this as a drink holder when we have outdoor events.

We used it for our Father's Day party and it was fabulous!
There are holes in the bottom of it so the water drips out as it slowly melts.

When it isn't used as a drink caddy I keep it on my front porch and use it as a little table.
