    They have remote controlled lights that would be cool in there too! And i might be tempted to line the inside with sheet moss too!

    Did you make your bar and stools? They’re absolutely gorgeous

    • Yes! My husband actually threw it all together in one day. This was long before I started partnering with Home talk. I definitely wish I would’ve done a tutorial way back then! I don’t know how he did it and either does he anymore 😆

    That is a great idea and it looks amazing. But now to the important things, did you make the stools? do you have the plans? dimensions, etc.?

    • I wish we had plans for the bar and the stools but my husband literally threw them up in a Saturday and it was long before I started partnering with Home talk. To this day, the bar and stools are our favorite project we’ve ever done! ❤️

    I think the resources list at the end has things confused. Sheer curtains? Definitely the wrong hanging baskets, but then again a triple light? LOL!

    Very clever idea! I would think a solar light could also work if hanging in a sunny area.

    Your husband is also clever in how he seems to have thrown the bar and stools together from pallet wood. What a creative couple you two make!
