The most important part of any summer party is the grill. Here we have some creative ideas for homemade and upcycled grills.

You can make a home made grill out of an old car wheel.
Or just use the whole car, or half of it.

If you have an old wooden spool, you can turn it in to a grill table.

We regularly have old sewing machine bases that can easily be turned into this.

Not exactly sure how this Bender grill works

The second most important part is the drinks, especially the beer. 

A bunch of old metal pails work great for separating varieties or alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages.
Have an old wheelbarrow lying around? Just fill it with ice and your favorite brew.

Take an old console table, cut some holes and drop some buckets for a phantastic wine chilling station.

Another great use for an old spool, this one just has a standard plastic bucket dropped into the center.

Another one made from things you can find at Phantastic Phinds. Loose the sewing machine and bolt a wagon to it for a great beverage station.

Same idea but this one is much more mobile.

Bought an old side table at Phantastic Phinds that you don't know what to do with?

Old sewing tables are everywhere! There are so many that we can't take even close to all of them. Here is a great way to reuse that old table once you loose the machine.

Add you favorite color of Chalk Paint® and you're ready to go.

Old tubs work great if you have the muscle to move them around.

Your old cane seat chair has seen better days and you don't feel like recaning? Get a bucket and fill with it drinks!

Don't forget your condiments and toppings.

Take some old mason jars and put them in an old crate for an easy way to keep your condiments and toppings together.

An old cake stand works great too. 

Muffin baking trays make amazing servers for your sauces!

And your vegetable toppings

Creative utensil holders add a great touch to your backyard BBQ.

Slap some chalk paint onto some old soup cans and bind them together with some hemp twine

An old tool caddie is a very easy solution.

Take an old basket, fill it with jars and fill them with your flatware.

Or paint your jars and mount them to a board.

Presentation is important too, here are some creative ideas to spruce up your summer parties. 

I am loving this grill made out of a watermelon.

Pork sign made from old license plates.

Punch some holes in old soup cans and fill them with candles

You can also paint them red, white, and blue for a patriotic theme

These mini grill deserts are so cute.

An old caddie works great for serving food too!

Bonus Death Star fire pit. 

That's it for today. Have a safe and fun holiday!!!
