Basement Bar Demo

The holidays are officially over, and so is winter break, but go figure Eli has a fever and will not be going back to school today. Ugh!!!!! Fingers crossed for tomorrow. These past two weeks have really felt like months.

While we were all hanging out in the basement yesterday, David decided to demo our bar. Right now the bar is just too clunky and big. It makes the room look a lot more closed off than it already is. It’s also a dated oaky wood. We decided to cut off the side of the bar, and it’s crazy what a difference eliminating one piece makes.

Once the bar is the size we want it, we are going to shiplap it. We were going to just paint it, but I think that paining over this wood grain might just look like a quick and cheap fix. The shiplap will make it look much better without breaking the bank. Once the shiplap is done, we will pick out counters, do the floor, and then I think that this basement will be ready for paint!
