Nothing excites me more then seeing freebies online especially when I'm feeling inspired and ready to start a new project
Get Party Ready With a DIY Bar
You'd be surprised what people throw out but I knew what I was looking for and finding it wasn't difficult
There's so many selling sites e.g.(gumtree, Ebay, spock) I went straight onto it and Googled free pallets it wasn't long before I came across 100s of ads I found what I needed then arranged my collection.
I was inspired at a recents friends party who had a home made bar I wanted to try it myself
Once I had my pallets home I went straight to it, measuring and cutting the pallets to create the L shape Bar I had in mind
Here I achieved the size and shape, now I needed a bar top. There was a few trials & errors I wanted a thick top with a rustic feel look I didn't want to settle for any less
My parents had some scaffolding boards in their Garden along with old decking boards I bought them home cutting them to size and placing them on the frame to see what looked best.
I cut and placed the scaffolding board to the frame and screwed it down then sanded it all over.
Using left over woodstain I coated the wood which brought out the grains giving it a lovely finish
I painted the frame white, stained the woodtop then added some decor from the dollar store
Two leaf trellis and a rose fairy light garland from the range
The end results
I hope I've showed you how easy and affordable it is to create your very own home bar
The bar was a huge success
The bar with the light at night.
