Mel and I purchased this from one of our friends a while back. I thought the design of the bar top was really unique.
I wasn’t impressed with the color and style but I knew I could freshen it up.
I decided to give this bar a more 50’s feel. The sides of the cabinet had cuts in the material so I decided to accent the sides with pink (the camera isn’t catching the real color of the pink). I attached it with upholstery nails.
The front was plain so I decided to use some of the scrap material I had laying around and attach diamonds to the front of it. I hot glued them in place and then nailed them to ensure their attachment.
I had to paint the frame black and I repainted the foot bar in a brass color.
The original stools were shot. The fabric was split and stuffing was hanging out.
I repainted the stools and had the cushions redone by Fine Line Trim & Upholstery to match the bar.
We are very happy with the results. It makes it hard to sell but Mel and I have like 3 bars and we don’t even drink! I guess that can be a resolution for next year.
