My easy and inexpensive DIY home bar — starting with a $10 furniture buy from the ReStore

I built my own tiki bar using the top of a 1970s step-back cupboard — and it’s the perfect size for a small home bar. I bought the cupboard for just $10. And I am not lying: Making this bar took less time than making this 2-minute video with all my DIY tips!

    I never would have thought of turning it upside down! I was wondering about the stability with the open part on the bottom. What did you use for the top of the bar?

  2. Pam Kueber says:

    The bar top is a piece of cedar that I bought at an estate sale many years ago.

    The bar seems pretty stable — it’s heavy — but as I said in the video I plan on adding more supports.

    I am in awe of people who have this kind of vision, to see the potential in a “castoff” and turn it into something so great. Wow. Just wow. ????????????
