Easy DIY Project: Pallet Outdoor Bar

Easy DIY project : 2 pallets, 3 pavers ... such an easy thing to do! There are NO directions on the site, but I would assume that you secure the pallets together with nails ... the pavers (large squares) look like they are just resting on top but I'm sure you could use some kind of adhesive to have them become permanently attached. I'm thinking I'd use a few slabs of either discounted (broken, chipped) marble or slate! I'm going to try and convince Hubby to give this a try!
