Happy Thursday!

You know we love a good pallet project over here at the Yellow House and today’s pallet bar is no different!

One day, I literally walked outside and Russ was drilling this into the deck. How do I know he’s the best, though? Because he took pictures along the way! 🙂

All he did was drill two pallets together and held the sides together with a leftover 1×3.

Next, he took them to the deck and drilled around the edge of the bar to ensure it was stable on the step down area of the deck. You can also see in the below picture that he secured the rest of the 1×3 on the top to hold the barphoto 5He added the top with cedar planks, also leftover from other projects.photo 1-8

Finally, he stained it very similar to the color of our deck (we plan to stain the entire deck later but just haven’t gotten to it this summer…between basketball and afternoon showers, we have been out of luck!). But this stain!? It’s a perfect gray for our needs! I can’t wait to tell you all about it when we stain the rest of our deck…I think I forgot to mention Cray spilled half the gallon on the top part of the deck one day so we had to go ahead and spread that out! It just was NOT prepped for it, obviously, so we will prep the rest of the deck properly before staining!

ANYWAY, back to the pallet bar!

Voila!

Do you think this is an easy project you can tackle? Like our bed swing, it required very little supplies! What can you piece together around the house?
