The only downside of our darling little Bungalow is the lack of counter space. After some serious pinterest-ing, I decided to help add space, I needed to build a coffee bar. Essentially it’s creating space from nothing! I started by heading out with Adora and Amy to find the “bar” portion at a local thrift shop. It took a good 5 shops or so, but I finally tracked down this little treasure for $25. It was a bit banged up, and needed a little love.
This love of course took the form of a good sanding, priming, painting and distressing. I wanted a little bit bigger top, and some contrast to the turquoise, so I decided to get unfinished wood boards and stain them. When they were finished, I nailed them to the top for a larger table-top. Amy and I found this pair of red drawer knobs at Anthropologie and they just tied everything together so nicely. Using the leftover stain, we bought a few larger board cut to the same length, and hung them as shelves using spray-painted brackets. The whole project cost around $80, and I couldn’t be happier with it!
