Project Super Simple Coffee Bar

  • October 27, 2017


This is definitely the easiest project ever! I had client that wanted to create that coffee bar feel (inspired by a Ana White project) in her home but was on budget! She already had a Cabinet so all that was necessary was to make the shelves & add some character to her existing piece. So, I headed to Home Depot & purchased 2 2x10x10 and also purchase2 2x8x10 & 1 2x6x8 & cut each piece down to 5 feet! I Sanded & used a mix of classic grey & dark Walnut stains, and created these awesome & very inexpensive shelves. I did combine 2 of the 2x10 to make one counter top for the cabinet in which I painted a beautiful blue color of chalk paint from Country Chic! I also painted a huge chalkboard as the background. I then Distressed & sealed all of the new shelving & there you have it, a super simple coffee bar!

  • That coffee bar turned out great! The blue is a great touch - did you choose that or did your client ask for it?
