Beat The Summer Heat With This DIY Lemonade Stand

DIY Lemonade Stand

Kids love lemonade stands! Our four kids are no different, so I decided to build them this DIY lemonade stand out of pallets and some 1x4s. We also added a few extra decorations like flowers and colorful feathers to give it a summer festival vibe.


o Rust-Oleum Spray Paint
o Four 1x4x8s
o Screws
o Package of feathers
o Chalk

Recommended Tools:

o Miter saw
o Circular saw
o Impact driver
o Tape measure
o Pencil

o Use one full pallet for the front of the base and two pallet halves for the sides, and screw them together.

o Attach two 1×4’s about 7′ long on each side of the base for the sign above. For the sign, cut a piece of plywood and attach to the 1x4s, then paint it with Rust-Oleum Chalkboard.

o Cut to length and mount a support piece of wood, flush with the top of the base, that attaches to each 7′ vertical 1×4. This will serve as rear support for the table top.

o For the top, simply cut 1x4s to length (mine were about 24″ long) and lay down side by side until the entire surface is laid.

o Cut another piece of plywood (square) and again paint it with Rust-Oleum Chalkboard, as pictured above. Mount it to the front of the base.

o Paint the slats with Rust-Oleum American Accents 2X Ultra Cover Gloss Grape Spray and Rust-Oleum American Accents 2X Ultra Cover Ultimate High Gloss Turquoise Sky Spray. Or choose your favorite colors!

o Get three flat paper bags, cut small holes all the way around the sides, and pull feathers about halfway through the holes. Paint the exposed part of the feathers with the two colors mentioned above and Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Copper Metallic Finish.

o Time to add decorations! Add the feathers, some flowers, your drinks, and any other attractive decor. Grab some chalk and let everyone know what you’re serving on the painted chalkboard signs. Now it’s time for the kids to enjoy their DIY lemonade stand!
