Just got done with my kegorator project. I got the freezer free. It was a 15.5 cubic foot freezer and it holds 15 kegs or 14 and a CO2 cylinder. I finished the top with pre-finished hardwood floor and did the trim with pine. Pretty fun project. I have on tap: from left to right, Hard Lemonade, Hard Cider, Triple IPA, Amber Ale, Brown Ale and Dry Irish Stout. Mmmmm, free beer!

Looks great, and I like the idea of pre-finished flooring for a bar top. What did you coat the sides with?

I use a spray paint from Home Depot that is textued to look like granite. I made a neally nice surface. Kind of a speckeled black and white finish. It covered up all of the minor dents and scratches.

Nice. With capacity for 15 kegs...we'd better hear about lots of brewing escapades this summer.

You can fit 15 kegs in a 15.5 cf freezer? That's impressive!

More likely its all that "Free Beer"...

Nice job!
I'm gathering the bits to get mine together this summer. I may emulate your idea for the trim.

Good luck. It was a fun project. It took me a couple of afternoons. Even my wife likes it. She hated the old fridge I used to have on the porch. Too Whiskey Tango for her tastes. I used the cheapest pre-finished hardwood flooring at Home Depot. After a few coats of varnish, it shined really nice.
