Surely I’ve seen coolers turned into many things from the class of the portables to those that are stationery and they all come out great. This time round the focus is on getting the job done for way cheaper than they usually costs and the trusted old pallets come to the rescue. I’m particularly impressed by this build from foxhollowcottage.com and will like to share a summarised version of it:
To get started we have to get our cooler. Though the steps and materials are the same each build is custom-fitted to the size of the cooler being used. You should not forget to cut off or remove if possible the handles of your cooler before starting.
Next, you should take your measurements and cut the pallets accordingly (after disassembling them of course) . With the pieces, you will be able to build the main framework for your pallet deck cooler.
It’s time to attach your spigot for letting out water and the hinges for the lid
Then, after a fair bit of sanding and painting (scotch tape was used to help to paint the different colors) we have our finished work looking all ready use:
Great job done by husband and wife. To see the full and detailed instructions, image and build tips, visit the foxhollowcottage.com blog.
