Our Wet Bar

As promised here are just a few photos of our wet bar before and after. As you can see the prior home owner liked a very colorful room. Now, I'm not saying that is a bad thing, it's just that this was not how I would have done the bar area as it is open to our family room. So, we tore down the old cabinet doors and had custom doors made for me to paint and we tore off the old painted counter top and my sweet dad Robert installed a new laminate. My DH tore out the old shelves and re-installed them evenly spaced and also built a wine bottle holder within one of the old cabinet openings. He also installed a new sink and cabinet hardware, with my help I might add. I am a very lucky girl to be married to such a "handy" man and he looks cute in a tool belt too. he he. We applied a wall treatment and then did a faux paint on it and also added some Fleur De Li's on the wall too. The only thing left to do is to maybe paint the ceiling a color that blends better with the walls but we'll see. For now this is our new wet bar, if you click on the photos they will open in a new window in a larger size.

What an amazing job you and your husband did with the wet bar. We have the same laminate countertops on our wetbar too.

It's beautiful!!

Thanks Jeanette!! I love what you are doing with your closests!! You are so inspiring, I can't wait till we start organizing our master bedroom closet!! Our home was built in the early 70's and so it needs lots of updates. Our bar area will look even nicer once we paint he living room and entry hall the coordinating color. If you look closely there is an area to the right of the bar that I painted the color to be sure it will look well.
