This area of Leslie's backyard where her grill lived was lacking. But not wanting to pay exorbitant custom kitchen cost, she found functional and stylish workarounds to create that custom look— with a lower price tag.

From Leslie:

One of my favorite things to do is entertain in my back yard when the weather allows. But the area where we housed our outdoor barbecue grill was in a sorry state.

I didn't want to invest in a new grill, nor invest in a custom outdoor kitchen, so I endeavored to create an affordable, usable outdoor space.
I created a plywood template, and had a local metal fabricator make a stainless steel countertop which I had mounted on bar height restaurant table legs and secured into the concrete patio. A simple roof was built, following the style of the existing roofline, to cover the new outdoor area.
An affordable stainless sink and bronze faucet sourced from Home Depot provide a place to rinse barbecue tools and wash hands.Vintage items found at consignment decorate the new outdoor area along with inexpensive barstools from Target.

Now, barbecuing is fun!
