Make This Cinder Block Bar — No Toolbox Necessary

To buy or to DIY — that’s the question most homeowners have on their minds. Should you splurge on a tasseled Anthro pillow or whip out the yarn and tassel up one of the pillows you already own? Do you buy that CB2 velvet headboard or give your own a facelift? We can’t make these decisions for you, but we can tell you that this cinder block bar is worth the DIY.

This colorful number is simple, affordable, and just as functional as its pricey, pre-built counterparts. By using cinder blocks (which cost around $2 each), spray paint, and wood flats, you can customize the size, shape, and color of the bar.

The best part? There’s no toolbox required! Scroll on for the easy-peasy tutorial.

Materials + Tools:

Cinder blocks (4 or 8 depending on the width of your wood flats)
2 sturdy wood flats
Spray paint (optional)

Instructions:

  1. If you want to add color, spray paint the cinder blocks and let them dry completely.
  2. Lay two or four cinder blocks as a base.
  3. Top with a wood flat.
  4. Stack the remaining cinder blocks directly above the first level.
  5. Finish with the second wood surface.
