Your bar is bound to be chocked full of splinters. sand it down to avoid any future accidents. Your new bar is almost done!

Step 5: Accent and Stain

Picture of Accent and Stain

Accent your bar with an unruly bent nail to hold your vintage bottle opener.

Add a stain and finish of your choice, and VOILÀ! You have yourself an awesome up-cycled pallet bar with minimal investment of time, energy, or money.

Hanging on a wall, or sitting on a table, this baby will look great indoors or out! All you have to do now is stock it!

looks good, I like to rustic charm! what are the two bottles on the left? the one with the cat face (?) and the green eyes?

The bottle with the green eyes is Lucid brand Absinthe.
