So we have a new picnic table for the patio! We used these plans, and modified to fit these troughs for cold beverages. Here are some nice green ones, too. I then stained using Behr exterior wood stain in semi-transparent Gettysburg. Was hoping for a miami-beach-y look. It took a whole gallon for the table. Next up, the benches. For now, we’ll use plastic patio chairs, but they are faded green and ugly. ; )
Here you can see the table with the troughs hidden.
Remove those boards, and there is your ice bin!
