bar area…

the bar area was made by adding some bead board, two posts, a couple of corbels and a wood applique to the lower wall.
love this!

  6. This looks fantastic Lynn! As far as the dropcloth slipcovers, go for it. I did it for 8 chairs, and I am so pleased with how they look now compared to how they did. It is so worth the effort. Wash the dropcloth first, it shrinks the first time, but not after that.!
    It also becomes a lot softer.

  18. Goodness, you did more than the bar, you closed in the ceiling and dropped it down with bead board, it makes it look huge, that is gorgeous, you must live with a really handy man.
