bar plans


(ugh. that carpet is long gone, btw.)

Since we totally removed the peninsula in the kitchen and patched up the drywall by ourselves, I'm feeling confident enough to tackle this nook with its awk triptych mirror. I want to carve the nook out into a regular box shape so we can put in shelves and make it a built-in bar. And if I'm feeling really butch, I might even attempt to install some cabinets below myself. I'm thinking I'll keep just the back wall of the nook mirrored with glass shelves sort of like below and wallpapering the entire little hallway/nook area surrounding it.


Some other built-in bars I'm coveting....

  1. love this idea! I've had those rooms pinned for a while now to use in my next house which must have a spot for a carved out bar!

  3. Every home needs a tiny bar! My fave are the hidden unexpected bars like #2 and #4!

  4. Yes!! This is going to be fabulous! I think having an actual bar would be SO much better than a bar cart.

  8. I bet you will kill it! Love the mirror and I think the nook is really cute and so much potential. In my first apartment I had something like in the last photo with mirror and everything...so fun!

  11. Once you start tackling projects on your own you have a good sense of what you can do and what should be delegated to someone else. Good luck!

  14. Wonderful images! My favorite is the bar in the last image. It's simple yet chic and glamorous. If only I had the space to build a bar in my home.
