Pirate Bar

I am so happy! I finished my pirate bar! Here it is in all its piratey glory...
The two wooden barrels that I bought this past summer for $10.00 each were the inspiration for this bar.
 I knew exactly how it was all going to come together the moment I brought them home...
 
I chose to make a cement bar top rather than a coin covered bar top. I was worried how the resin would hold up to the elements and the hot sun beating down on it. Once the cement had cured, I painted the cement so it looks really old. To finish it off, I tucked in some sphagnum moss between the rope border and the cement bar top.
 Now comes the fun part of staging the area. I added a wooden spigot to the rum barrel.....
 The cork net floats that I bought months ago, I strung on some rope and hung it from the gazebo over the pirate bar area.

The black netting was a .50¢ steal this past weekend.
 There is a lot more staging to be done in this area, but now that the bar is completed it is just a matter of having fun!
big hugs,

Wow! Looks great - you did good! Something like that outdoors here would not last long due to weather conditions and squirrels.
