Turn An Old Fridge Into An Awesome Party-Friendly Cooler

Turn an Old Fridge into an Awesome Party-Friendly Cooler

Before you get rid of that old, broken refrigerator, think of what you could do with it — like turning it into this interesting, rustic cooler.

The plans for this project come from Instructables user Matt2 Silver. You'll need about $US40 ($57) worth of materials, including pallets, casters, and 2x4s. When all's said and done (it will take about two days to complete), you'll have a combination serving table/prep area and multiple cooler compartments for stashing drinks, condiments and other party goodies.

It's huge, but perhaps you host huge parties.

    Don't expect it to run well or even last too long. The compressor is designed to run vertically.

      You use a broken fridge, Its basically an old fridge turned into a big esky. No compressor.

      I think the point is to use the insulation, not the motor - since the article mentions "broken" fridge

    This looks like a pretty handy hack, but a full sized fridge IS huge.. this would work equally well with a knackered bar fridge, and it would be a much more manageable size.
