When we moved into our 1972 two-story, 1 of the fun options of the house was that it had a soaked bar. But like the rest of the house, it was in sore need of an update. It was lined in a cowboy themed wallpaper with glass shelves, a dated countertop and worn cabinets. The sink didn’t drain appropriate and the overhead light was an eyesore.

The damp bar just before:

We’re massive coffee drinkers so we produced the selection to switch the damp bar into a espresso nook and give it a present day farmhouse come to feel. By generating the most of what we experienced and DIYing the relaxation, we got outstanding effects and this job even arrived in a very little under spending plan.

Refreshing the kitchen area cabinet coloration

We started out by painting the kitchen cupboards. We chose Perpetual Gray by Sherwin Williams which you can obtain at Lowe’s and this definitely set the tone for the rest of the property. We utilized this colour in our kitchen, laundry area, guest tub and for our inside doors, as very well. It helped make a cohesive appear all over our property. Then we up to date the coffee bar cabinet doorways with black knobs.

Do it yourself butcher block counters

For the countertops, we bought an unfinished pine board and produced Do-it-yourself butcher block counters. We minimize the board to dimension and saved money by staining it with a stain we now experienced on hand from an additional job. 

Repositioning the sink

We went again and forth on whether or not to retain the sink, but in the stop decided it would be useful to be able to fill up the espresso pot correct there. We retained the recent sink and faucet from the moist bar to conserve revenue and just repositioned it to the aspect so that we could have room for a coffee maker. We minimize the gap in the butcher block for the sink and then sealed the butcher block with Watco Butcher Block Sealer (this sealer is readily available at. Lowe’s also) to protect the wooden.

Shiplap partitions

Alternatively of removing the wallpaper, we made a decision to shiplap above it. We ordered primed MDF shiplap for the challenge. This built for a brief and budget-friendly answer to the dated wallpaper and it seems astounding! We loaded the nail holes with putty we previously had on hand, sanded it down and gave it a coat of white paint.

The existing light was at first in the ceiling of the wet bar. We chose to shift the box down to the back again wall and mounted a galvanized metal farmhouse type light-weight. It definitely extra some character to the room! 

Purposeful fixtures

We mounted black farmhouse design and style hooks to possibly side of the coffee nook for a convenient way to shop mugs. We also installed a towel bar to the false drawer front to cling hand towels, which has been truly handy! 

The ultimate outcome:

The remaining touch was to increase the “gather” indication I found on sale at a dwelling decor shop. It speaks to what we need our house to be – a gathering place for pals and relatives!
