Who says grilling has to always be a paper plate and dusty cooler event? Take it up a notch [or maybe ten] by Gazinta-ing a Classy Outdoor Grilling Room!
[but it will look super hard and impressive to your guests]
|Time: 1-2 hours construction & the patience to find your Gazinta treasure [plus a little time for paint to dry]||Cost: $||
Special Skills or Tools Needed:
Once you find your treasure-in-the-rough, and have convinced your family that your not completely insane when you drag a hutch deep into the back yard- it’s time to get to work!
- Wipe the entire piece down with dome Murphy’s Wood Oil to find it’s dust hidden beauty
- Replace any missing door pulls [this project just needed a $2 cabinet handle] and tighten hinges as needed
- Protect your Grilling Hutch from extreme moisture from both behind and above.
- Using heavy duty plastic sheeting and a staple gun cover the top of the cabinet and the exposed back panel.
- To protect both the roof surface from rain and standing water-and the ledges of the hutch, create a ‘rain roof’ out of a luan sheet painted with Rust-Oleum Hammered paint
- Measure the widest area of the hutch, in this case it was the ledge below the glass cabinet section, and add two inches in every direction [front to back and side to side]
- Once cut to the desired size, sand lightly and paint with two or more coats of Hammered Rust-Oleum to give it a high gloss, water repellent surface.
- Attach on top of the plastic sheeting layer with wood screw
- Next ‘repair’ any missing areas of laminate. Gazinta Style doesn’t try to fix or hide the defects, instead go for the obvious embellishment.
- Using the wood scraps from the rain-roof; measure, cut, sand and paint replacement pieces. The Hammered Rust-Oleum paint works great for this and looks super too.
- Attach with caulk adhesive
