It’s summer which means it’s too warm and sunny to sit indoors all day. You want to be outside soaking it all up before things get miserable again weather-wise (we all know everything else about 2020 is trash). The problem is that while you’re enjoying some lunch in your back yard, your ice-cold drinks are getting hot and gross. Thankfully, there’s a solution for that: this picnic table comes with a built-in cooler to keep your drinks chilled while you enjoy your grub.
- Just bring your ice and drinks and relax! The cooler is right at the center of the table, meaning it’s easy for anyone sitting at the table to grab a drink at any time. Just fill up the stainless steel compartment with ice, stick your drinks ink, and you’re golden!
- You can hide the cooler away. If you want to use the table but don’t need the cooler for some reason, say when summer is over, there’s a slat of wood that matches the rest of the table and fits perfectly over the cooler compartment so the table is still fully operational. However, I would just use the cooler for condiments, so I don’t think I’d ever need to cover it. To each their own!
- The cooler picnic table is completely hand-made. Etsy seller KIINTfurnituredesigns makes their tables from scratch. The wood comes from the Slovenian Julian Alps and each table goes through an intensive finishing process that makes it durable and long-lasting. They’re also stain-resistant, waterproof, and require very little maintenance.
- There might be a wait for it to get to you. Because the tables are hand-made, it does take time for you to receive them once you order them. They take a few weeks to assemble, then there’s the shipping time. Depending on where you live, the seller estimates this could take anywhere from 5 to 15 days. A reasonable wait for such a unique piece of furniture, I’d say!
- People who have purchased from them are really happy with the products. The seller regularly receives high praise for their craftsmanship and the quality of their products, so that’s all I need to hear. This cooler picnic table will be mine! If you’d like one yourself, you can order from Etsy HERE for about $1,000.
