As soon as I spotted this outdoor entertaining space, I loved the DIY-able idea for an outdoor bar. You could use any type of cinderblock base and any pressure-treated wood that will withstand the elements. Grab a few colorful accessories, invite your friends over, serve some drinks and enjoy the arrival of fall! Here are a few items I rounded up to help you get this look!
I think a butcher block piece would look really great in this set-up. The sleek bar-height chairs give a great space for seating and chatting with guests as you serve up a drink. Don’t forget to finish the look with a few pretty containers and plants. (Ikea always has great, inexpensive options!) Shop for a few color coordinating pieces like a watering can or hand towel. Enjoy!

I love the vintage vibe of this covered porch, what a great place to relax during the summer with a book and a tall glass of lemonade. It’s a neat combination to create this vintage feel with the antique birdcage, traditional shapes, floral pillows and striped cushion.
To recreate this look, I’ve rounded up a few items that will have you enjoying a lemonade on your porch in no time! I love the mixture of colors and patterns in pillows and throws from Lacefield Designs and Dwell Studio. The addition of pretty blue containers and plant life will really make your space feel cozy and refreshing. Enjoy!
