Basement bar

The basement apartment needed a table or an island or BOTH.

When a person only has 266 sq ft to work with, you have to think outside the box

I found this piece at the Interfaith Thrift Store. It was the bottom half of a large buffet.

Solid Wood

Stanley furniture


Yes! I can make this work

I want it to have double, triple, even quadruple jobs

It needs to have storage ✔️

It needs to provide a space to sit and eat, or work, or watch TV or ? ✔️

It needs to match current decor ✔️

Since I didn’t get the top part of it, a counter would need to be built

The height needed to be perfect.

Many legs would sit under the “pretend”‘counter trying to determine the height. Short barstools? Taller barstools? Fat or skinny barstools?

So many options

But look at all the storage!!

Counter built

I spray painted the already cute hardware and put it back on

Even the back needed to be cute so I added wood trim to match

The top was stained to match and the doors were put back on

It was meant to be

The perfect size

The perfect piece

And even cute from the back

This week is all about the basement apartment.

I hope you will enjoy seeing all the details
