Agree on the comment for plans if you have em. I'd love to replicate something like that.

Sorry, I wish I had some plans for you but it was kind of a build as I go project. I had an idea in my head, and since home depot is across the street I was able to just come and go as I pleased, no need for drawn up plans.

The only real measurements were for the top. I knew the area it had to fit in, and went from there. The foot print wasn't as important.


Basically, I built a box around my freezer, and some edges on my lid. I probably spent 3 extra days and 20% more than I had to just because of trial and error, but to be honest I'm glas it went that way. I could easily build another in half the time for half the price.

My biggest hold up was deciding what tiles, and laying the tile since I had never done it before, and the coffin box.

I built 3 boxes before getting it right. Honestly, a staple gun made it much much much easier to do solo. It gave me a "extra set of hands" to hold the wood together so I could drill it.

Hope this helps, I'm sure you were hoping for more, but unfortunately I don't have anything for you

Pretty slick setup. I like the back splash tiles, nice little accent.
