A DIY tutorial to build an outdoor rolling console. Great for serving food and drinks plus plenty of open shelf storage for your patio or backyard space.
When the weather turns warm we gain a whole lot of living space outdoors. Both the front patio and backyard are heavily in use all Spring, Summer and Fall. To make those spaces function to their best ability I’ve been slowly building furniture pieces to fit. This rolling console provides a ton of extra counter space, serving area and storage. Plus it’s on wheels so I can move it wherever we need it!
