Rustic Pallet Bars Get Parties Started

  • 4 pallets

  • medium

  • 5h

  • n/a

I built each one of these Rustic Pallet Bars using three to four pallets. I make many different styles, based on a basic frame & design.

Grab three pallets and build a version of these Rustic Pallet Bars for your backyard!

Tools & supplies used on my projects:

  • 18-gauge nail gun
  • Router
  • Circular saw
  • Hammer
  • 3" finish nails
  • Carpenter's wood glue between the wood joints
  • 3" screws (on the 2x6" trim boards)
  • Safety glasses
  • Leather work gloves
  • Paint (on some bars)
  • Stain (on some bars)
  • Jig saw, or band saw
  • LED lighting (on some bars)

I use reclaimed 2"×6" wood cut to 42" inches. Additionally, I use 2"×12" boards cut to 5' Long for the bar tops and. I cut more 2" x 12" boards to 27" for the sides. Then I pressed all the wood before painting. Allow the wood to dry thoroughly before sanding down to bare wood.  I cleaned the boards off with mineral spirits before applying several coats of semi-gloss polyurethane.

Rustic Pallet Bars like this one let the natural beauty of the wood shine through.
Let the natural beauty shine through by sanding the pallets down to bare wood. Protect with a semi-gloss polyurethane with UV protectants.
Rustic Pallet Bars can be customized with your favorite team names.
Customize your bar with your favorite sports team name. You can buy the letters, or carve them out of scrap pallet pieces. Attach with glue & nails or screws.
Rustic Pallet Bars can have different looks by just painting and sanding lightly to create a weathered and worn look.
Create a weathered look by adding a layer of paint and then sanding it lightly to create "worn" spots. Make a sign to name your bar, honor a sports team or even a band!

This version of my Rustic Pallet Bars is featuring a sports team name and a weathered blue paint.

Rustic Pallet Bars look even better with LED under-bar lights!
Add LED lights under the bar ledge to create an excellent night-life at your party bar! Be sure to get outdoor-safe ones if you don't want to have to remove them for inclimate weather.

Add a Vertical Pallet Planter - even on the front of the bar!  Create a Porch Swing Hanger for Mason Jar Lighting.
