Ice Cooler Makeover

This summer my youngest son and I went to a boutique/yard sale during our town celebration.  We spied a fun ice cooler, but neither one of us bought it…until my son went back and snatched up this cutie:ice coolerI would have left it the way it was, (because I am a Coke-aholic) but he wanted to do an Ice Cooler makeover!  He and his wife built a new house and just moved in a couple of months ago.  They have a gorgeous patio and he wanted this to go out on the patio for when they have parties.  His favorite team is the Pittsburgh Steelers, so can you take one guess as to what his make-over was???ice cooler makeoverIf you guessed the Steelers…you are right!  I actually love the way that it turned out.  He took it all apart and painted the different colors.  We made some vinyl letters with the name and found a logo, so he painted several layers of paint to get all of the different colors!  I think that he did a great job.  He asked me to distress the edges because he had never done that and so I did that, but he did all the rest!  (His wife said the he is definitely my son, because he knew exactly what he wanted and he did it!)ice cooler makeoverI think that he did a great job!  It is perfect for their patio!
