A DIY Concrete Block Planter & Bar

The Hunted Interior

We've featured several DIY cinder block planters — they're great because the blocks are inexpensive, easy to come by, and customizable. Reader Kristen was inspired by our posts, but decided to take the idea one step further by making a planter and bar using concrete blocks, along with many other salvaged materials.

Kristen from The Hunted Interior was doing some work on her deck and decided it needed an outdoor bar. She had been waiting for a reason to replicate the cinder block planters we previously featured, and realized they'd make a great sturdy base for the bar. She used old deck boards as the top and refinished a salvaged glass door for the colorful backdrop. Once she came up with the construction plan, it took only two days and less than $50 to complete!
