Building a backyard bar is a great deal easier than you think and it can be made from new and recycled material. Building a backyard bar from Fastclamp, galvanised tube and recycled wood gives you an industrial look and the pleasure of knowing you did it yourself. I was recently furloughed in the United Kingdom and was left with little to do. The reason being in the previous weeks when we were all on lockdown, I was working with my wife to create a garden in our then ugly backyard. In a time where suddenly our weekends did not have football, nights out in Manchester’s Northern Quarter or weekends away.
We had created decking areas, built a metal shed bought from Argos, something I will never do again, it was like tiny screw armageddon. We created a vegetable garden from two old pallet sides and from pallets even more garden spaces. With the hanging pots on purple pallets, the space is a tranquil vista to sit and play cards and enjoy visitors. In the midst of all this plant life is a hammock chair, perfect for reading or reflecting on a stressful day. A space though that was not filled was an area of decking outside the entrance to our home.
