I built my kegerator a couple winters ago, but just started contributing to the forum so I figured I would throw it on here.
My main concern when making the kegerator is that we are limited on space so it has to be in the living room. Since my fiance is not a beer fan I knew I had to try and make this thing look nice (like furniture rather than a freezer) or she was not going to go for it. The solution I came up with was to create a frame around the chest freezer and attach some laminate flooring to go with our old hardwood floors. The other goal was to try and make it so that I did not damage the chest freezer in any way so I could sell it in the future if I have to (shudder).
Started with the weather stripping
2x4 frame at the base to attach the exterior frame/flooring to.
2x8 redwood collar over the weather stripping.
Freezer frame, collar and lid frame.
Adding the flooring as wood panels.
Getting everything all glued up and screwed on. It would have been really nice to have a nail gun at this point.
Adding the trim pieces. Again, a nail gun would have been nice.
Trim and taps all added. All finished except for getting the kegs filled and all hooked up.
Considering the limited tools and space I had, it all came together pretty well. It will hold 3 kegs and the CO2 bottle on the floor with maybe enough room for a future fourth keg on the bump.
Since building this, I have also built a matching fermentation chamber that lives in our home office/bonus room.
