I first came across the refrigerator turned outdoor ice chest/cooler on Reddit, where there is a pretty lengthy discussion of how it may be made, possible features, along with a few obscenities.
Some good points brought forward in the discussion about this upcycled refrigerator include: for safety it needs to be openable from the inside so children don’t accidentally get locked in, refrigeration device must be removed, and it needs to have a drain opening to allow melted ice to drain.
