Remember the ugly wet bar we had in the basement?
Well, it definitely got a facelift.
The most important task was replacing that dated green countertop with the matching countertop we got for the bar. Unfortunately, pre-made countertops are one of the few things hardware stores will not cut (because of possible splintering), so this was a project Brent got to freehand. Yes, freehand.
Brent did 3 practice cuts on the extra material before starting on the cut. To help prevent splintering, he placed masking tape down the center of the cut.
I think it turned out great. And the best part? We only spent $60 on this update – and that was for the countertop. The mirror is one I bought on clearnace at TJ Maxx 4 years ago, and could never find a home for, and I already had the black paint.
We still have to get a mini fridge for underneath, since the former one was sacrificed for the kegorator. We have some Best Buy gift cards left over from the holidays, so hopefully we'll find something we like there.
And look how well it matches the bar:
