How To Make A DIY Pallet Bar For Under $115
We have a pretty large backyard, and I’m definitely thankful for it. However, aside from our back deck and some patio furniture, the space doesn’t feel all that exciting. During the summer months, we’re constantly barbecuing and eating outside, so I’d like the backyard to feel a little more lively (especially when entertaining friends). And thankfully, I’ve found a project that will accomplish this!
Paul Nowak, a self-described hobbyist from Sheffield, England, constructed a backyard bar made almost entirely from wooden pallets and other scraps of wood. What’s even more impressive is that this DIY project cost him just $112. When considering the cost of buying an outdoor bar or having one custom-made, this definitely seems like the better option.
Once Paul got all of the materials together, this project took just two days to complete. If you had a friend help you out, this would be a relatively easy and painless weekend project! Paul was able to get most of the wood for free – the old pallets and crates he used for the wood didn’t cost him anything. The small cost of this project was due to the supplies he needed for the roof, the paint, and some other odds and ends.
Paul installed a working fridge in the bar so that his drinks would stay cool, and he wouldn’t have to run inside to the kitchen every time he wanted one. Paul also installed beer taps, has bottles on display, and added a few stools so that he and his guests can actually sit down at the bar. Overall, this bar has such an awesome, energetic, and fun feel. Hopefully this project has given you some inspiration that you can apply to your own outdoor spaces!
