Beverage Cart

My dear, sweet friend Rachel, who has a great eye, picked up this fantastic vintage cooler from the thrift store for me (isn't she the best?).  Check out the bottle opener on the side.
I knew it needed a fun project to show it off.  I came up with a beverage cart. 
I started with a sketch for this project and pieced it together, board by board, solving the construction questions as I went.  
Some wheels and a few hooks for BBQ tools or a towel, and it is ready for entertaining.

  12. Love this. I saw a vintage looking cooler at home goods the other day for $129. I thought I could diy something even better. Your idea is very inspirational.
