Ohhh Honey…where are the power tools? It’s time to break them out! I found an amazing DIY and not just pictures from Domesticated Engineer. They included a list of materials, measurements, tools, and the honest upfront cost of $226. I am so happy! This table has the option of a built in cooler and that is so much better that a cooler all the time. Sometimes you just need more room for goodies that drinks.
Be sure to give yourself sometime for this table and have fun with it. I don’t think you should do it the day before the family BBQ or you all might be sitting on the grass. Most stains take at least a day to dry and oils another after that. Some people have suggested galvanized planters instead of plastic and that might be something to consider to save the hassle of replacing them as often. Brilliant! If you’re looking for more more patio idea you should check out the ones here.
