Instructables user Alan Teed shares a simple how-to project based off a tutorial found in the 'Concrete Countertops' book that teaches you how to create a stunning outdoor bar from beach glass. This elegant DIY project brings the aesthetic of the sand and the ocean to your backyard decor.

To replicate this outdoor bar on your own, begin by creating the shape of the bar's countertop. Teed chose to use a pointed triangle design to add depth and a unique twist on the traditional rectangular bar design. Teed uses a mix of blue and brown colored concrete in a wavy design to replicate a beach's shoreline. Then Teed sprinkled various pieces of colored beach glass into the sandy portion of the concrete for added texture. The overall look combines a rustic design with chic beach appeal.
