Begin by laying your cinder block on its side. Apply pieces of painter's tape to form a triangle. Press down firmly on the tape to make sure it is adhered securely.

Paint the taped off area using latex paint in your favorite color. Let it dry and then repeat the process on the opposite side of the cinder block.

Remove the tape. Now bring your cinder block to your porch or patio, where ever you plan to have your wine. Be careful, it's heavy!

The last step is to fill the Ziploc bags with ice cubes and insert them into the holes in the cinder block. Then stick your wine in, and you're done!

The cinder block will insulate the ice, keeping everything nice and cool.

The cinder block wine cooler is super durable (I mean, it's made of cement) so it can just be left outside if you plan to use it throughout the summer.

And feel free to get creative with the painted design... you could take it beyond triangles, painting other shapes, letters, etc. Have fun!
