DIY Farmhouse Outdoor Bar


DIY Farmhouse Outdoor Bar or Potting Bench - using an old table and pallet, I created this functional and fun drinks bar in a farmhouse style! by BIrdsParty.com @birdsparty #diy #outdoorbar #diybar #drionksstation #farmhouse #farmhousedecor #farmhousediy #pottingbench #farmhousetable

Hi friends! Today I bring you another "trash to treasure" project that's perfect for summer - a DIY outdoor bar! It's basically an outdoor table that can be used for soooo many occasions!

I have used this modern farmhouse-style table as a bar whenever we cook outdoors or have a BBQ. But this is such a handy little table, that you can use it to serve snacks, use it as a patio buffet table, as a desserts station or even as a potting bench!

Hope you feel inspired to create one for all your summer entertaining needs! 😎

DIY Farmhouse Outdoor Bar or Potting Bench

This outdoor bar started its life as a battered old dresser, but you could use a thrift store table or something similar. Just give it a good clean first 😉

We also recycled an old pallet that we had in our garage to create a backing for the table and a little shelf too.

I say we, because there were some power tools involved and so I solicited the help of my husband for the heavy-duty stuff. Only because I don't really trust myself with a power tool 😅

Anyways, the technique was pretty simple in the end and I'm so happy how it turned out!

To decorate my outdoor bar / potting bench, I opted for a modern farmhouse style, and used some black metal hooks and shelving I already had at home.

If you decide to re-create this project, these accessories or ad-dons are totally optional, and will vary depending on what you have on hand.

For optional accessories to your table or bar, I suggest up-cycling the hooks from old coat hangers like I did, or creating some totally unique hooks using unexpected materials and objects, like leather or even rope.

For the paint color, I decided on a light gray to make this table / bar really versatile and match any modern farmhouse decor that I may want to style it with.

This way it's also a "blank" canvas for decorating and using it for any holiday.

But obviously, feel free to use whatever color paint or wood stain tickles your fancy, or that suits your own personal style better.
