He Used Velcro To Make This Kegerator To Keep The Beer Flowing At His Wedding

She's studied English, music, film, and other creative fields. In her spare time she's reading or writing creative nonfiction, arranging songs, or writing jokes just in case she some day decides to try stand up comedy.

This couple is living the dream...

True, they're getting married to the loves of their lives, but that's not what we're talking about.

If you're like me, then you've always wanted your own kegerator...but they're so expensive! At least, that's what I thought.

When this guy and his soon-to-be wife decided that they really wanted an awesome wedding, but would rather put more money toward the booze itself than the method of delivering it, this is what they did:

They started out with a discounted floor-model freezer -- they found one for cheap, around $150.

They cut a small hole in the back of the freezer for a temperature control.

Then they sawed out a hole in the lid to fit the neck of the tap through.

They designed all the wood panelling themselves...

And secured it to the sides with Velcro. Yeah.

They used some old barn wood and corrugated metal for the panels, but you can use whatever you like!

Stay super modern with metal sheets, or even go all out and make a mosaic out of broken glass.

They bolted the tower in place after applying a layer of silicone.

All three panels went on with Velcro, leaving the back open for ventilation.

They made a matching lid in two pieces, so it would fit around the spout.

More Velcro to put the top on...they added the catch below the taps...

Add some matching handles...

No doubt this will get some serious use on their big day (and beyond)!

No one will ever know that you used Velcro to cover up an old, boring freezer. It looks so classy and rustic! Velcro is so underrated.
