DIY Table with Built-In Cooler

Imagine having a table on your patio or in the backyard where you can have cold drinks at your fingertips! No need to bring out a cooler or have to get up for another drink. If you’re comfortable building things or know someone who is, this is a great DIY project. Other uses for the built-in cooler could be having food or dips that need to be kept cool, planted flowers for decoration, or just cover the holes for a smooth table top to provide more space. You’ll find that this is one project you get a lot of use and enjoyment from.



The table uses window boxes so you could keep a set with planted flowers to switch out when you don’t need something iced. Another cool idea is to have a set of boxes without holes in the bottom that you could fill them with water and put floating candles in it. Talk about ambiance!

The Kruse family at Kruse’s Workshop built this table and then posted the plans for it on Remodelaholic.
