Would you like this conversation to happen to you?

“Hey honey when did you buy that great looking bar and grill set up outside that wasn’t there yesterday?”

I didn’t buy I made it all by myself.”

This project was the husband’s way of saying we will spend more time together and have fun eating together. The husband in this case was more than happy to show off his handyman skills and the wife was happy to have a beautiful functional piece of furniture that matches the tones and colors she used to design the patio. All around this project helped make a happy couple with a new simple and fun addition to their backyard.

What was the husband’s secret trick? He used imitation stone panels and corners in order to fabricate the bar and grill. These panels can be used around a heat six as long as it is five to six inches away from the actual heat source. Essentially, what the husband did in this case was use a frame of wood and bars in order to construct a small frame to accommodate the grill.

Since the faux stone panels are easy to cut and glue or screw onto any flat surface the husband was able to finish this project before his wife got home from doing her hair.

The Perfect Do It Yourself Project

In this case the husband used plywood and some 2x4 pieces of wood in order to create the skeleton for the bar and grill.After that he simply glued on the panels and screwed them in so they were secured onto the brackets. Then he used a small touch up kit and was done. The grill was strategically placed so the heat from the grill would not affect the panels. People even use faux stone panels around fireplaces. This picture shows the high quality look you can get by adding a few panels around your house. Check out the link to view more great examples of stone veneer:
