You never have enough space to put all of your barbecue tools right? Well Elana from the Home Depot shows off her creation that anyone can do.
Dad's Bbq Island
1 small dresser or nightstand
2 each 2x4s cut to the depth of the dresser
1 piece shelving or plywood cut to size of the bottom of the drawer
4 casters or wheels
Tile for top
Simplemix adhesive and grout mix
trowel, float and sponge
Hooks, jars, pipes etc
Clean dresser with soap and water to remove any grease and grime. Remove the top drawer. Measure space where drawer set and cut shelf to that size so that shelf will rest on rails. Remove all knobs. Measure the depth of the dresser and cut 2- 2x4s to fit on bottom of dresser. Screw the 2x4s onto the bottom of the dresser. This will give stability and a solid base. Screw caster onto the 2x4s, one in each corner.
Spray with Primer and let dry then spray with desired finish color. Let finish color dry. Measure and dry-fit your tile on the top of the dresser. Because this may be used for some food prep, it's best to use large tile and small grout joints.
Use float to spread Simplemix onto the back of your tiles. Place them on top and press them firmly in place. Once they have adhered use the same Simplemix to grout in the joints of your tile.
Hang hooks, bars, bottle openers and any other bbq accesories on the sides of the dresser. This is where you can custom fit this island to be whatever you would like it to be.
