Tired Kitchen To Modern Bar – House Makeover Part 4

So I will admit… I’m not 100% done with this area … who ever is completely done with a room?? I do have some crazy ideas in the works.. and I will definitely share with you the FINAL look once its complete!!

Hope you like the transformation of this TIRED kitchen to modern bar!!  A Lounge is not complete without a Bar right??


Kitchen Before 9 Years Ago:

Kitchen 2 years Ago: after we refinished the cabinets in Black with light distressing

Kitchen TODAY!!

We swapped out all of the black appliances for stainless & in the process we invested in a slide in flat range vs regular stove… we installed a matching piece of granite to fill the hole and Hubs installed this backsplash!! Didn’t he do did such a great job?!?


Of course… fun little accessories!

Entire Kitchen & breakfast nook view 9 years ago:


Breakfast Nook 5 years ago:


Once Breakfast Nook Area…

NOW a fabulous Contemporary Bar!!!



Fun Bar Accessories: Motorcycle wine/liquor bottle holder..


We installed these glass shelves over both bay windows… They hold all the bottles we’ve collected… each of the bottles are names of each of our family members… isnt that fun???  😉

Hint Hint: Jameson, Zaya, Jewel, Kai…


View from the nook area 5 years ago…


Now the view from behind the bar!!


Behind the bar view to the eclectic living room.. sneek peek of the wall of clocks..
I love the bar being the midpoint to both the lounge & the eclectic living room!


So just a RECAP… what do you think of it now???
