This past weekend my husband and I set out on a fun adventure in construction!
First of all, living in apartments for the last 5 years left us somewhat clueless of the awesome-ness that is Home Depot. I mean, you can buy cinder blocks for only $1.39...who knew?! So, I have become a junkie.
After perusing Pinterest on outdoor projects, I kept seeing all kinds of different cinder block ideas. You can see some of the one's that inspired me here. We decided we wanted to do a bar, so I read up for a few weeks on different ways to do it and decided on a wide bar that was tall enough for stools. Our back yard is long and rectangular so we decided on a L shape to take advantage of space and to be able to seat people on both sides.
This bar can seat about 8 people comfortably - 10-12 if we had to and we can easily add on later if needed!
