Ok, so since I had all my power tools out. . . Why not tackle another wood project???
SO I DID JUST THAT!
The baseboards weren’t even completely up from our flooring project
and I decided to start my long awaited pallet wall!
I had desperately been itching to decorate this space above my wine fridge . . .
and there was no need to wait any longer!!
HERE I COME!
This is the space I was determined to tackle . . .
Completely boring in my eyes . . . and I wanted to tie the bar area into the kitchen area…
This project was fun, easy and extremely satisfying~ the pictures just don’t do it justice!
Hope you love it as much as I DO!
To start I bought a piece of plywood the size of my wall.
I only had to cut the top at an angle with a jigsaw . . . EASY PEASY!
Hubs secured the plywood to the wall with screws right into the 2 x 4’s
I pulled out all the different stain colors I had! Including one that I had never used . . .
White wash pickling stain! Ended up being my FAVORITE!
I stained all the planks different colors.. this was soooo easy to do and therapeutic.
I just threw on my music . . and started brushing away!
Didn’t have to be perfect! Just put the stain on!
I started laying out my first couple of rows just to get and idea of how I wanted to proceed on the wall.
All the planks were different sizes. . . So I had to line them up by size and varying colors..
The first couple rows were a challenge just because I had to cut them at an angle . . .
but once I got past that??? SMOOTH SAILING!
Half way done!! woot woot!
All DONE!! I just love the varying colors, depth, sizes!! Ooooooo!
Turned out better than I had ever dreamed!
Now time to decorate . . . I propped up my BAR sign & Arrow shelf (that I’ve had for a year . . . yikes!)
I loved the size of the letters . . . but I had my heart on the Metal Industrial look . . .
Time to paint the letters Black and get started!
I then dry brushed on this silvery gun metal color metallic paint . . .
Letting the letters dry . . . ALMOST DONE!!!
READY TO SEE THE FINISHED LOOK????
Found this orange auto shop metal shelf at a garage sale . . .
added a metal industrial light, wine bottles, corks, and copper mugs to complete the look!
What do you think??? I love my BAR area!!! The Wine in its designated area . . .
and and of course the other bar beverages in their spot!
I love how it Perfectly ties into the kitchen and decor!
finished off the look with these modern industrial stools from Target!
What do you think??? I LOVE IT!!
