DIY Patio Table With Built-In Beer/Wine Coolers

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.

DIY Flagstone Veneer Fire Pit

I love it when someone else has gone before me and gotten the trial and error out of the way. That is what Instructables has done for us. They have taken the guess work out of making this fire pit and I am grateful for the avoided heartache. Working with flagstone will suck up your time (each piece’s size and thickness is different) but they look awesome. Pavers are easier and uniform but it all depends on what look you are going for.
