A CRAFTY woman made her very own ‘lockdown bar’ in the back garden after all the pubs shut due to coronavirus.
With no watering holes open during the warm weather, one woman decided to make her own out of some old wood and a lick of paint.
She roped in her other half to knock the bar together out of old pallets using “big screws and a drill”, before adding a counter on top out of decking.
She gave it a coat of paint in pink and white, and sourced some stools which she painted in the same colour scheme.
The finishing touches were some tropical bunting, fairy lights and a light-up flamingo from B&M to complete the look.
She shared her handiwork to Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, where she said: “Our 2020 lockdown bar.
“Pallets, decking and a bit of paint.”
Her incredible project has racked up more than 5,000 likes, as people were inspired to make their own version.
Commenting online, one person said: “All we need is pallets. We can do this lol.”
Another wrote: “I need this in my garden.”
A third said: “We can do on our week off.”
Someone else thought: “You should do this your garden.”
While this person added: “Absolutely brilliant.”
