Always wanted your own little bar in your back garden for a quick escape from everyday life? We have the perfect DIY guide on how you can create one from a wooden lean-to shed.
In this handy guide, we’ll show you an easy way of how to turn a shed into a social, multi-functional garden bar!
What You Will Need
First things first, you will need to get yourself a shed. We recommend the Forest 4ft x 6ft Overlap Lean To Shed because of its lean-to design and canopy front. Building the shed will take around 2-3 hours, with a few cups of tea as you go.
An important part perhaps overlooked until the end, is furniture. Not only will it be important to have outside but also inside the bar, where else would the drinks be prepared?
For the outside seating, a small table and chairs would be best. We recommend something to match the wooden shed.
For inside, we would suggest a small shelf or table to prepare/store drinks.
Now the hardest part is over, let’s move onto the exciting part, decorating the shed.
The first option you will face is “Do I paint, stain it or keep the natural wood colour?” – That is down to your personal preference. Just remember, you want it to complement your garden. Next are lights! They will brighten up your new bar, ideal for late evenings outside with friends. Our favourite lights are the Premier Multi Action String Lights in Ice White or Warm White
Now, how to keep your drinks cool. If you don’t want to splash out on a mini fridge, we have the perfect solution for you! All you will need are two planters one medium and one large, sand and cold water. I bet you’re thinking how is this anything to do with a fridge? But we have researched a cheaper alternative rather than spending hundreds of pounds.
