Outdoor Kitchen Bar

excessfroufrou(7)October 20, 2010

My DH has been wanting an outdoor kitchen for a long time. I recently found this cabinet by the curb. He pulled all the yucky siding off and reworked it. I mosaiced the top with tiles (samples) that a friend gave me. The sink and faucet came from the TS. The back of the short end is open and holds a rolling frig that we already had.

Love this! You did a great job on that counter. Broken tile mosaics have always been a favorite of mine. The whole project is an excellent lesson in recycling and resourcefulness too.

How creative! Love what you did with basically just the frame. I often see freebies around and just know that someone with a good imagination could turn them into something. I sometimes have trouble seeing outside the box. Good job!

That's a great save! The top came out so nice & there is lot of space there for food & drinks & will work for small & large groups. You & DH did a very classy job, I like the sides of it also. Did you leave other side open or put some doors on it? Jan

frou ...you & DH have done it again! WOW! Another great project & more recycling! That cupboard probably would have been burned or in the dump! Love the mosaicing you did with "samples." WOW! That counter top is GORGEOUS! Ok, DH should be happy with his outdoor kitchen & you can both admire your GJ from here! Nice TS sink, too! TFS! Jeanne S.

Thanks guys. In all fairness it was a great recycling project, but not without some expense: siding, concrete backer board, grout, sealer, glue, nails and so on. It was still less expensive that haveing it built. Jan, we left the back open for now, but I put some bins in there to keep things in.
