Build an outdoor bar that hangs on a wall with Sam Henderson from ‘Todays Nest‘, for HGTV. This bar was made from old pallets, so its recycling too… great choice when you need a small bar for small gardens.

One of our Pinterest finds, using an old hutch as a DIY outdoor bar. Cute and funky! You could pick up a thrift store hutch, then use distressed paint finishes to get this look as well. Be sure to seal it with an exterior grade sealer.

Here is an idea that couldn’t be simpler. What more festive way to share drinks than an ice filled wheelbarrow?  And, it’s like a portable outdoor bar! You know, for when the party moves from the patio to the lawn for the inevitable football “game”. From ‘Style Me Pretty‘.

The Creativity Exchange‘ has a great project for those who like to “remake” things. Their potting bench turned DIY outdoor bar is more than just repurposing. They has a full tutorial on how to add hardware, make glass storage, etc… Great project for those who don’t want to do actual construction.

Next we have a tiled outdoor bar from ‘My Carpentry‘. It has a full tutorial, and with it step by step drawings. What a great style for a mediterranean or exotic feel to your garden! I love the corrugated metal, it keeps this project looking updated.

Lastly, another Pinterest inspirational outdoor DIY bar idea. This one is pretty easy…attach two pallets together with screws, paint, then top with landscape pavers. Pick up some landscape adhesive at Home Depot and attach the pavers permanently for safety. Done!
