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! 😎
