(DIY) Our Bar Project

This is the first post ever in my series titled DIY Projects! Any projects I work on for the home, for working out, on the blog or pretty much anything I decide to tackle hands-on will be found in this series. The first thing I thought I should feature is our own home bar! The hubs and I have no kids and we like to go out and have drinks with friends. However, our most fave place to go for drinks is home. It is cheaper and no one has to worry about getting home if they want to crash at our place. We have a great gazebo on our porch, a nice propane and charcoal grill with a smoker, a fire pit, beer pong table and no carpet to be concerned about. It is the perfect party home minus the fact that we don't have a bar! (We will grow up someday...)

So the hubs just built one out of extra wood he had left around and he promised it wouldn't be an eye sore! It is definitely a multi-stage project and we both have ideas with where the bar will go and how it will look. Once it is has all come together, I am thinking I might want to host monthly parties/gatherings for our friends and acquaintances. Maybe I'll actually throw that masquerade party I've always wanted to have for my birthday that is next month!

I'll be posting the bar's progress and any DIY projects we do related to the whole bar. Here is how it is looking so far:

Phase One: Get It Built
The hubs made it a bit tall for me but he assured me that we'd get bar stools so that it needed to be tall. The thing is practically as tall as me but I'm going to be hopeful that it is going to be awesome!

Phase Two: Get Some Color
Most of our furniture is in the brown, dark brown, cream realm of colors, but we both like black and the dining table is black, so black it is! The black makes it look so much better and that's only paint! I still want the corners rounded because I am terrified to scratch my face on it! I've already almost done that a few times and that is without drinking! lol. 

The hubs is talking lighting, I'm talking shelves for glasses, we are both talking bar stools, mini fridges and nice coasters. If our little home bar turns into our fave bar to visit, we may have to name it! Yep, you can definitely tell that we don't have kids!

Oh, and does anyone know if liquor stores give discounts for buying lots of alcohol? It can't be a bar without being stocked with at least the basic staples! Tell me what you think we definitely need to have on stock because all we drink is rum, whiskey and vodka. ;-)
