We love spending as much time as we can outside on our deck and patio. Especially now that we have this DIY Pallet Bar to enjoy!
We try to soak up as much outdoor lounging and entertaining as we can. Our deck has been missing one thing though….a bar for relaxed outdoor entertaining!
Recently we amped up the fun factor by adding this beautiful planked DIY Pallet Bar to our deck. We absolutely love it and today I’m sharing the instructions on how you can make one too!
I used these amazing RYOBI 18V One+ system tools to build our pallet bar. The fabulous team over at Ryobi sent me these awesome tools – all opinions and expressions are my own.
This tool system comes with a new and improved Lithium plus battery!! So amazing!!
We designed our DIY pallet bar not only as an area to serve drinks and food but also to hide a lot of spare electrical outlets that we have sticking out in this area of our deck….which we wanted to cover. This is also the reason we ‘planked’ our bar…to hide all of that stuff!
