Introducing the poolside snack bar. Keep your munchies cool on the hottest of summer days with  removable gel ice packs and interlocking containers which fit into the original grooves of the bin. But wait there's more! The parasol also shades the snacks further keeping them cool.

Practical as well as creative! Use the bin to carry all the goodies out to the pool in one trip!

I love everything about this entry - fun paint job w the circles, umbrella is a riot (and useful too), the cooling trays… genius! The photo and copy are perfect. Smart, simple and whimsical, you should design for IKEA!
