While i have no pics yet and the frame isn't assembled, i'm sure there are a few fans of Gallifrey who will appreciate my efforts once completed.

Thanks to everyone who has inspired me. I could list many people, but i will just thank everyone including the ugly kegerator owners. Each of you has busted your ass to make it yours and i commend you.

Next pint is had in honor of you all.

(i think i'm intoxicated. that's the only excuse for lame kissass posts like this)
That's how I did mine "johnny cash style" cheap fishing cooler jockey box, then wanted a bigger unit (lol) but the 2 keg mini fridge fit in the space(better than jocky box). 1 keg, 2 keg, ebay rails, taps & tower from keg cowboy here, 1 more keg coming soon, 4th keg in a few months, chalk board from big lots, label hangers from wally world.

A little hard to see on my screen, but it looks cool. I may have to try this when I get around to doing mine.

awesome, likely cheaper than those premade boards too.

I know where I am going for lunch today... off to the depot to check on the paint.

At my home depot it was right next to the spray paint cages. They have white/black dry erase and chalkboard. Can't wait to paint my keezer cover with the blackboard!

It's very hard to get a good picture of. It's subtle. Kinda looks like it is part of the grain.

I'll upload a pic from when I did it.

This one is a bit better. It was before the polyurethane. The slight glossiness seems to be the issue. With flash, it's reflecting the light too much. Without, it is too dark...
