hello everyone.welcome would you like to have an outdoor kitchen for a fraction of the cost well I have an easy affordable solution if you'd like to see how you can take some simple materials from any building store and build yourself an outdoor kitchen hang on some time ago on my Instagram I shared an image with you a little sneak peak of an upcoming project well like many of you around the country we've been getting a lot of rain so it seemed as though every time we would get started we'd have to back up a little bit and let things dry out and start over again so we've finally completed it and now I want to share it with you we decided upon placement and layout and as I've said in many other of my videos my husband is the numbers guy so he ran the numbers and decided what materials he'd need and we went out to the home store and we selected them this video isn't going to be super detailed however all the information that you would need is right here on YouTube which is where we got a lot of our ideas from so have you got to work he started with creating the legs that would hold the counters or the kitchen what we're calling the kitchen surround he used wood glue and the Kreg jig to assure a secure fit for the legs now to keep those beverages cool we decided to go with an ice chest a built-in cooler you could add a refrigerator here I just thought it would be fun to just create this I have seen this done on YouTube over and over again and I just thought it would be the coolest and very inexpensive here he's measuring the size at the top of the cooler so that when we drop it in it will fit flesh he created what we're calling the prep side and he attached the cooler side to the prep side once that was created he began to add the legs on again for additional support these were also installed with wood glue and the Kreg jig now it's all ready to be flipped over and we can begin to create the area for the cooler here he's already installed the ledge that will catch the cooler and the ledge that will surround or enclose the cooler the part that the top will sit flush on here he's measuring just about where he's going to need to rip these two by fours because those will be the area that will cover the top so now there's another area that we had to wait for things to dry out but we're back at it and he's working on the brackets that will hold the bottom shelf we opted for open shelving however you could place your refrigerator in here you could add baskets you can also purchase outdoor sinks so if you wanted to have a sink in here there are garden sinks there are ways that you can create a sink out of a actual sink it just depends on how you want yours configured this happens to be right off of my kitchen window if I chose to I could open up the window and make it a pass-through so I didn't really want the sink and as you may have seen there's a water hose right here I still may add it it may not be up here with the kitchen it may be next to it down in the grass closer to the water hose there are endless pops possibilities and it's all up to what you want so here's another area where we had to beat the rain again and we've got both sides we went with an L shape but everything is all framed out now we went with inexpensive pickets yes tickets they're like a dollar something each and this is how we enclosed everything and you could get I believe at least two areas I believe each picket did too if I'm explaining that properly once it was cut you had to so it was very very affordable don't worry about the dog ear cut off on the pickets because that's going to be framed in or enclosed so don't worry about that and here it's a super hot day and look where I'm sitting yup in my supervisors seat just chillin and look who's at work and I've got my little sidekick with me we're just chilling again guys detailed instructions are right here on YouTube on how to do these enclosures but I do want to remind you if you do it remember to leave your spacing between your pickets for expansion and contraction so I don't know how he decided how much space to leave but just a little space between each each picket so that they could expand and contract now here he's just adding the trim to give it a more finished touch now you could decide to leave this just as it is and let the wood weather over time you may want to treat it because it it's wood you may decide to stain it your area may have a better wood that was not accessible to me like a I guess it's redwood I think that does a little better outdoors but what I wanted to do was have it match everything else that's in my backyard with that brownish black color so that's what I'm going to use so while we're waiting one of these days for everything to dry out I decided on the patio or the barstools that I was going to purchase to go around them here you see where there's a nozzle going to go in so that the cooler can be drained Here I am painting the color that I love and what we used was actual deck paint so when this went on it gave it like a seal it sealed it just as it would a deck so it actually feels impenetrable by by the weather so I'm so excited that I decided to go with this rather than a stain or just allowing it to weather and I think it goes perfectly with all the other pieces in my backyard so I'm happy with my choice now at this point in the process I haven't decided what color I want to do on the inside so I'm still holding off on that now here's the idea for those pavers because of all of this wood and because of the firebox on the grill you need to separate the grille from your wood so that's what these pavers were for so now these large wheels on the back of the grille we replace with matching Castor's so it would be easier to fit the bricks up next to it so now that both sides have been painted and we've decided on the placement of the stone and the grille and everything seems to be coming along quite nicely DIY weekend warrior mishap number one we had some mastic in the garage we were always doing something so we already had some mastic I had my husband bring it to me and I didn't read it well to make a long story short it was indoor tile mastic not for outdoor so the next day of course it had rained and when we went on it to check it it was losing out so we had to pull everything up fortunately they came right up and we cleaned it we replaced the wood and we started over which was cool because I didn't like that wood that was there initially anyway so here the tiles have had an opportunity to settle and we're now trimming out the tile now the tile trim has been painted and we're moving on to the next step we're letting it dry here I still at this point needed to add some grout our surfaces were 24 inches we used 18 inch travertine tile which was one complete tile and a second part had to be cut to fit tiles on the shelves are just sitting there they're not attached with mastic or anything they're just there now also on Instagram and I made a video here of some outdoor solar lamps that I made for the area and now the reveal we use some paving stones that we already had and we enclose the area that would hold the bar barstools and we filled it in with pebbles and sand now this little ice chest let me tell you we've had an opportunity we use it for the fourth of July and we we're out here all the time now and when you put one two two bags of ice and that cooler they last in that cooler in this southern heat for about two days love it out here you may have seen some sneak peeks on my Instagram my husband and I have coffee out here every morning every chance we have an opportunity to my daughter has been out there with me we've set here and we've had snacks out here and we've done our planner planning out here and we absolutely love it now remember guys you can customize this to your specifications you can add stainless storage there's stainless storage boxes you can purchase you can add wheels to yours if you like you can add a fridge you can add a sink you can tile yours you can add stone on the outside it's totally up to you depending upon your skill level and your budget but keep in mind this cost us I believe less than three hundred dollars we already have the grill the most expensive pieces were probably the pavers and the tile if I remember correctly but again you can complete it to your specifications this is a sample of some of the storage ideas that I have just some ways to keep some items out here that would be easily accessible and of course it matches everything else in that I love it so I hope you all have enjoyed this video and I hope it has given you some ideas and some inspiration on how you can create your very own outdoor kitchen on a budget I'm here to show you creative ways that you can have the things you want in and around your home in an affordable way that's why I'm here so I hope that you find it something that you can utilize and remember there are more detailed instructions right here on YouTube which is where we got a lot of our instructions from so that's why all of these people including myself make these videos I believe it's because we want you to be able to use them so as always thank you for watching this video I hope that you have enjoyed it if you're new to my channel

    One suggestion is to add a foot bar where the barstools are located❤️😃

    Actually you dont leave spacing with pressure treated because it will shrink in a few weeks

    This looks great. The only thing I would change is the installation of the travertine…but I’m in the flooring industry and see it done for a living. Great job all around. This gave me some great ideas!

    I love this. It's inspiring. How has it held up? And I agree with the comments about being able to change the grill as that happens!

    Great idea using the pavers, that grill will be replaced one day and the next one might not be the same size.

    I really like it. We live in the country and I've been searching around youtube for outside kitchen ideas. Most seem very pretentious, showing off. I like the outside feel you have created here. Very functional and very nice.
