Build your own Lemonade Stand with fence pickets and our free plans! We spent about $30 on our lemonade stand. You can print your own custom sign using our free template too!
1 - 1x12 @ 8 feet long
5 - 5-1/2" wide x 72" long fence pickets (dog eared are fine)
1 - 1x3 @ 10 feet long
1-1/4" staples or nails
1-1/2" screws for attaching sign
2 - 1x12 @ 46"
12 - 5-1/2" wide fence pickets @ 23-1/2"
2 - 1x3 @ 60"
Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Nail or staple or screw 2 boards to each end of the 1x12s to create a box shape.
Attach remaining fence picket boards to front.
I used screws (removeable for storage) to attach the sign legs to the 1x12 ends.
I screwed the top sign to the 1x3s - cutting to fit. I found the sign couldn't fit in my car without unscrewing.
I attached at an angle on purpose. I saved the scraps to make the smaller signs.
