Take your party to new heights with this DIY wood stand for a party bucket!
For BEHR(r) Think Outside the House Challenge – where you can upload a photo of your outdoor project for a chance to win $500 –
I decided to make me a new party bucket (and share the tutorial and plans with you!).
All you’ll need is a galvanized bucket (mine is the 17 gallon one – 24″ diameter, 11″ tall)
About $20 at Home Depot
And a couple of 2x4s.
I cut my 2x4s down to the right size on my compound miter saw (linked in plans below).
I used a Kreg Jig for joining. I can’t stress enough how big a deal the Kreg Jig is – but if you aren’t ready to invest in one quite yet, you can also use 3″ self tapping deck screws for attaching.
The Kreg Jig simply predrills these holes,
Making it easy to attach everything.
Two 2x4s, twelve screws, twenty mintues.
To protect the wood from the outdoor elements, I applied a coat of BEHR (r) Premium Waterproofing Wood Finish in Clear.
I love simple projects like this that make a big impact! Not only does the wood stand bring the party bucket up in height, but it also looks so much better.
For about $30 total (including the bucket!) you can make this party bucket with wood stand. What a steal!
I’m posting the free plans below. Please do share if you build, we love seeing your projects!
