DIY Lemonade Stand plus $50 Home Depot Giveaway

I am proud to be a 3M, Behr®, and Wooster® – sponsored blogger, and, as part of my responsibilities, I get the opportunity to evaluate products. Opinions are my own and additional product used in the project were selected by me.

Every single summer my girls ask me if they can have a lemonade stand. While I love the idea of it, for some reason I always come up with some reason why they can’t. Well, this year with every intention of finally making it happen, I put “Lemonade Stand” on our summer bucket list. There. It’s in writing. Now I HAVE to do it! And while I’m FULLY aware that they would be happy with just a table and some chairs out on the front lawn, I really wanted to build a stand for them to use………….and so I finally did!

DIY Lemonade Stand

I’m participating in this year’s summer blog-hop called  “Get It, Got It, Go” Summer Blog Hop hosted by Kate at Centsational Girl. There are so many amazing projects so be sure to check it out! To make my project, this DIY Lemonade Stand, I partnered with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape , The Home Depot , Behr® Paint , and Wooster® Brushes

My Supply List

4 wooden crates

Behr® Premium Plus® Exterior Multi-Surface Primer & Sealer

Behr® Marquee™ Paint in Pink Parfait 170A-1,  Daffodil Yellow 380B-4 and Ultra Pure White PPU18-6

We started out by laying our crates out the way we felt best. I had a few different ideas that I wanted to try out but we wound up going with laying them out long ways and stacking them on top of each other.

Once our crates were laid out we figured out what size shelf and base we wanted and cut some plywood that we had laying around accordingly. We then primed and painted all of our pieces.

I thought it would be easier to assemble the lemonade stand first and then paint it but my husband had other plans. So, while the crates were drying, I grabbed the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and created the word “lemonade” on a piece of scrap wood that I had laying around. We painted the wood in Behr® Daffodil Yellow paint before we taped out the word lemonade.

Once I had my letters all taped out, I painted right over the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape with Behr® Pink Parfait. After the pink paint was dry, I removed the tape which now left me with a pink sign and yellow letters.

Now that all of our pieces were painted and dry, we assembled the lemonade stand by nailing the 2 bottom crates to the plywood base using our nail gun. We then nailed the 2 top crates to the bottom crates and nailed the shelf on. We took our 2 pieces of door trim (painted in Behr® Daffodil Yellow) and nailed it to the sides of our crates so that our lemonade sign would have something to hang on.

Wanting to give the stand a little more of the Behr ®Parfait Pink color, we used the ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and created stripes on the shelf.

To finish off the stand, I created some fun tassel garland from tissue paper.

Ready for some picture overload!?!
