A DIY Table With Built-In Drink Coolers Is The Perfect Way To Beat The Heat (PHOTOS)

There's nothing worse than having to make a beer run in the middle of a party. One proactive couple who agreed decided to remedy this in the form of a DIY patio table with built in coolers. As avid DIYers, we honestly couldn't think of a better summer project.

Inspired by a similar design they found on Dwell, the bloggers behind Domesticated Engineers set out to build one of their own.

And the best part about their project? They used plastic garden planters to hold the ice and drinks. Go on and take a look at the finished product:
