We had a custom house built about 3 years ago and had this space close to the kitchen that was just screaming for a BAR. Looked like a great project for me but the bar would be attached as an extension to the kitchen cabinets. Had to match the stain and make it look like it belonged. Was able to get the stain color from the cabinet makers so got that from Sherwin Williams. The matching crown molding was tough and I couldn’t find a match but if I didn’t tell you that I don’t think you’d notice. Granite top came from a remnant. So here is my Bar Project.

Great build.

Everything about that is super nice. You did an awesome job. That lighting and granite are a wonderful addition. They really set off that space.

Very attractive.
I can’t imagine the space without that there.
Bet it serves as a nice night-light when only it is illuminated in your kitchen.

You were right. That space did need a bar and you sure made a nice one!
