When we moved out to our home farm and remodeled the old farm house we were really happy with the results, but the one thing we missed from our old house was the bar and bar frig in the living room. Even with our open floor plan there just wasn’t enough room for a traditional bar. So, we designed this small, compact unit with a tambour door to conceal the bar frig and and a pull out shelf below for our “limited” bar stock (mostly BYO at our house!). The glass doors above have plenty of room for all our bar glassware and the other cabinets below will hold that extra case of soda and beer! Perfect for our needs. Soda and beer are out of kitchen frig and it is perfect for entertaining guests in the living room / dining room. The Unit is of oak, the upper cabinet has lighting within and under the cabinet from puck lights controled by a transformer wired to a cabinet hinge. With just a tap to the hinge we can change from low, to medium, to high to off. The tambour door is done with a string system through the boards. It has worked our well for our needs.
