Tagged: , , ,

As I consider various bars for our enjoyment around our pool this summer, the appeal of bars made from pallets becomes greater. Assumedly easy to construct from materials that cost next to nothing, going the pallet way seems like a valuable alternative, especially when it will only be used for half the year.

Everything’s bigger in Texas, so the saying goes, and when it comes to the backyard tiki bar of Ruben and Crystal Rios, those four words couldn’t ring more true. And it’s not just a bar – it’s a whole vilage, full of tiki trappings around every corner that have turned this backyard into an escape many resorts would be proud of. If I could start a new blog that featured just their backyard, I would. If I could actually write the...
