DIY Outdoor Buffet

We’ve been eating most of our meals outdoors. I decided we needed a place to store all our outdoor dishes and also give us one more surface to serve from, so I made an outdoor buffet cabinet. This was a really fun DIY. I took a couple inexpensive metal cabinets from IKEA, made a custom tiled tray top for it and ta-da, we have a new Outdoor Buffet!

You can see all the step-by-step instructions for this fun project over on ehow today. If you haven’t tried tiling before, I highly recommend it. I had so much fun making this tray top, I’m ready to tile something else, SOON!

      Lexy, it totally is. It’s just the right amount of messy and such fun results. I can’t wait to tile something in my new house!!!!

    I love this project! I live in New England and I’m a little concerned about how the cabinets will handle rain/winter. Have you had any issues with the metal rusting or the tile cracking?
