Have an old fridge sitting in your garage?
Summer is in full swing and it’s time for cookouts, fire pits, and pool parties! If you have an old refrigerator that you’re not sure what to do with, Matt over at Instructables.com has an amazing idea! He put together an awesome step-by-step tutorial on how to transform a broken fridge into a DIY backyard cooler or serving station!
Even better, the entire project costs around $40 if you already have the old fridge! If not, you can grab one on the cheap from a garage sale, Craigslist, your local Facebook yard sale group, or Marketplace.
This cooler is perfect for storing all those backyard BBQ must-haves, including drinks, snacks, meat, and more. Plus, you can attach wheels and move it around your patio or pool area! After the party is over, you can easily drain the ice and melted water so that it’s ready to go for your next get-together.
