Making a Pottery Barn outdoor buffet is a great idea! It’s cheaper than an actual buffet, and it’s really fun to put it together. Here’s a great tutorial for it, found at The Tale of an Ugly House!
If you’re going to make your own Potter Barn style outdoor buffet, then you’ll want to start with your own frame. You can make a few different styles and designs, but just make sure it holds together!
Once you have the whole frame set up, then it’s time to pick out the paint. Again, you can choose whatever type or color of paint you want, but make sure it looks good and will be weather resistant. You don’t want all your hard work to go to waste after one little rain storm!
Now it’s time to customize your outdoor buffet. Get hooks, handles, rods, and other accessories that you can attach to the frame of your outdoor buffet to make it so much more helpful and effective!
Once you get the whole frame, paint, and accessories of the outdoor buffet, it’s time to bring out the gear! Get whatever items you’re going to put in the buffet: a tiered stand, a drink holder, or whatever else you want. It’s time to deck out the outdoor buffet!
Now that you have all this put together, your outdoor buffet should be done! Without spending nearly as much money, you now have your Pottery Barn inspired outdoor buffet.
