Summer heat means lemonade for kids and adults alike! If you're tired of slapping an old table on the sidewalk, and can spare some elbow grease and creativity—these lemonade stands might just put your former stands to shame!

The stand above was made from four wooden crates tied together and painted. The maker, The Nerd's Wife, even has instructions for watermelon lemonade.

The best combination: pair your lemonade stand with the perfect snack for a new take! Gray & white freshens this stand's palette from the traditional white and yellow. See more at Jaquilyn Shumate Photography.
