Retro Bar Refresh

 

IMG_6797

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.

All done!

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.
