How to Build a Dry Bar
Get the look of a fancy built-in bar for less. Build a frame around a prefinished upper cabinet and a mini fridge with inexpensive stock lumber to create this custom piece of furniture in a few hours.
Make movie nights, game days, and impromptu parties extra special with a well-equipped dry bar that doubles as storage. Perfect for any room with a blank wall, a power outlet, and a little open floor space, this DIY bar design can be customized to fit your lifestyle. Start with a mini refrigerator, purchase an upper cabinet you love, then build an attractive waterfall frame using affordable stock lumber. A custom toe-kick for the cabinet lets you match the height of your fridge for a built-in look on a budget. New cabinet hardware adds the perfect finishing touch. Once you've installed the custom dry bar, stock it with your favorite games, beverages, books, and anything else you need for a fun night at home.
