This is the other kegerator I finished a few months ago. Its a super old wine cooler from an Olive Garden. It was in the kitchen, so its pretty banged up. I sanded the whole thing down with 200 grit and removed all the spot rust and enamel.
The gasket around the door isnt great so im looking for a replacement but cant seem to find one at all. The cooler runs great when I put duct tape around the door so the cold air doesnt escape. Its very quite though which is nice.
Eventual plan is to have this up in the apartment. The SWMBO is ok with this smaller on upstairs in the dining room but wont put up with my original one up there.
So I started with sanding down the whole thing till it was down to a matte finish. Wiped it down and cleaned it out and did a test run on it with my thermostat controller. Once it gets down to 36dF it only kicks on every 65 minutes for 4 minutes. Not as efficient as my chest freezer kegerator but it will do.
The inside can fit 2 cornies and a 10# CO2 tank without a problem and you can see everything from outside which is kind of cool I think.
After sanding down the top I taped off all but an inch or so border and applied 3 coats of chaulk board paint to the top. Let it dry then drilled the hole or the tower. Its the tower off my first kegerator that is not in action right now and has been confined to the basement.
Outside of the kegerator, everywhere but the top was painted with a high gloss gray paint. I think I still want to put some back lighting into the roof of the kegerator just to highlight all the stuff inside
Yes i know the pictures are horrible but sorry, I have an Iphone 3.
