Outdoor Patio Barbecue Cooler & Bar Cart

Jerry has been on a building spree lately, and I can’t say that I mind at all. He mentioned to me in passing that he was going to build an outdoor bar cart / cooler / BBQ Island thingy. Because I’ve been overly busy with work work, I heard him and said cool. Next thing I know, I head to the garage and it was practically done. I love it.

He got lucky and found a $5 cooler at the thrift store, looked at a few pictures online and started building around it. This patio BBQ island, bar cart, cooler, whatever you want to call it, It’s perfect….it has the cooler for ice & beer, a space below for bottle storage, and a flat work space area for mixing up the drinks. It even has a pretty copper towel rack in front, which is why we spray painted all the hardware to match.

Beginning stages of the project; Jerry built the bar cart around the cooler.

Painted the hardware with Rustoleum Hammered in Copper. This stuff is cool!

Patio BBQ cooler and bar cart is almost complete. Now I get to come in and do the finish. Weathered or Dark? Which direction should this go?
