Summer Fold-Down Wall Bar

Small backyard? Not to worry. Use wall space to create an outside that invites you in!

Build a fold-down bar, which is there when you need it and tucked away when you’re not using it.

Summer Fold-Down Wall Bar!
More of a patio or terrace person? Hang your fold-down bar with a couple of nails on your terrace and create a new experience in a small space.

Great for entertaining friends for brunch or a cocktail. This will surely be a conversation starter!


LAVENDER DAILY TIP: Paint the wood a different color to match your outside decor!
