    This is on our deck, just outside our kitchen we enjoy eating our salads on the bar and reach into our herbs and edible flowers to add flavor. It is a beautiful piece of furniture that looks like art. Someone told us it looks like it is in an expensive restaurant.

        Comments about : Plant A Bar, 2' x 8':

        I love this planter bar.
        It was crazy easy to put together, my husband and I did it in an afternoon. I was a little skeptical that all the pieces would come together when it was time to attach the last corner, but after a few taps with a rubber mallet it was done. The screws provided are super cheap and I would recommend purchasing new ones. We also had to drill a new hole in one of the metal side flat supports, because it did not line up. It wasn't a big deal. We put it together on our concrete patio, this caused scratches on one of the metal corners. I would definitely protect them if possible. You want to put it together where you're going to use it, because it is SUPER heavy. The directions call for a screw gun with a 3 1/2-4" long Phillips bit, you ABSOLUTELY need this to attach the shelf. The shelf itself is a little tricky to put up and down, however if you read and follow the directions it is doable. I.e) "Hold the handles and lift the shelf before releasing the handles" IT WORKS!! . I would definitely check that all the shelf brackets are locked when you open it, it is easy to tell if they're not. We have already used the bar several times. One warning... the black metal gets REALLY hot.
        I placed my order on line so I could plan when the delivery was going to come. The person I spoke with was extremely helpful and was able to schedule the delivery within my tight schedule. She also recommended the "ECO wood treatment" when I asked her what I could use to protect the wood. I definitely recommend using this to protect the wood. We put it on after we assembled the bar, but if I did it again I would treat the wood before assembly. This stuff drys really fast and you can handle the wood while it's wet. Save the leftovers as I noticed a few small spots I missed and wished I had not discarded it.
        I am still working on what I'm going to plant and I will update the pictures when I do.
