Summer is a time to celebrate, whether it’s just a friendly neighborhood barbeque, a back-to-school party (Woo! Let’s send the kids back to school!), or a summer wedding – you can’t beat summer. But with all the celebrating going on, people are going to be around a lot and you might want to think about a few improvements to make to your outdoor patio.
Our friends at Challenger Pallet have put together a list of 5 do-it-yourself projects you can make with pallets to make your home more inviting for your summer guests.
- Outdoor Pallet Bar
If you’re having a party, or even just a couple friends hanging out until the sun goes down, you’ll likely be standing around and talking. This bar is perfect for serving or setting drinks and appetizers on. And you only need one pallet to make it. Find this project on Pinterest.
- Outdoor Pallet Lighting
Create a little ambiance with this pallet project. Candles, mason jars and a pallet are great for a rustic wedding, or just to create some mood lighting when the sun sets. If you aren’t fond of the mason jar look, you could add a starry light string wrapped around the pallet and still get that romantic feel.
- Garden Tool Storage
We can all use a little more organization, especially when we know guests will be arriving shortly. Tidy up with this great pallet project. Simply hang a pallet on the wall and put hooks on it to hang your gardening tools to tidy up the mess before having company over. Learn how to make this project here.
- Outdoor Pallet Table
With barbecues and parties, you are planning on feeding your guests, right? Give them a cute place to eat with this pallet table. You only need two pallets and some wheels to add this little lifesaver to your outdoor celebration. And it’s great for just sitting outside at in the morning breeze with your hot cup of coffee or cocoa.
- Outdoor Pallet Sofa
Limited on seating? Pick up some pallets and get started on this creative project! Customize it with your choice of paint and pillows. You can even add cushions or a memory foam pad on the top to make for more comfortable seating. Your guests will thank you.
The best thing about all of these projects is that they are completely customizable. Use the colors and accents you want to create the best setting for your outdoor gatherings.
