Coffee Bar Reveal!

Tuesday I posted this picture and said to check back to see how I re-did this cabinet and made it into a coffee bar!


My Dad built this piece in shop class and it was in our house growing up as long as I can remember. My parents recently moved and no longer had space for it, so I took it off their hands. It is a beautiful cabinet and is really well built (as you can tell because it can hold my big ol’ booty). I wanted to change the color and make it into a statement piece. 

Went out to my sister’s house and set to work with her!

I started by taking off the doors on both sides. 



Then I got to use power tools… exciting! I sanded the whole thing down so it was ready for some paint. 


Then I loaded it up in my car and headed home. Hubs and I double teamed it the next afternoon and spray painted the whole thing a beautiful pistachio green. Let it dry overnight and then I mod-podged some red polka dot paper to the shelves.


I was happy with how it turned out but then the fun part came and I was REALLY happy!
Added our red coffee maker and our Keurig, then mugs and coffees. Then I got to add some fun decorative pieces! 




Very happy with how it turned out, it adds a lot to what used to be an empty area of our kitchen. 

When we have a bigger house I will surely be adding many more statement pieces like this one!
