Some of our good friends bought their first home recently and were celebrating their first Christmas together as husband and wife. It was his dream to have a bar area to make drinks while hosting friends and her dream to have more storage in the kitchen. She reached out to me before Christmas with a few pictures of a bar cabinet she loved but could not afford. Wanting to do something special for her husband for Christmas she asked if this project was something I could do. I of course wanted to give them a gift to christen their new home and something they will cherish for years to come.

  • This is an amazing design! You'd never guess from the closed picture that there was so much storage space inside. Great job on the diamond doors, too! Did you follow a plan or create your own?

    • Thank you! As much as I wish I could take credit for the design. It's really a combination of a few styles sold at crate and barrel and others. The doors were certainly tricky but I'm pleased with how they turned out. I looked at the pictures of the others and drew the plan myself.
