1. Measure your Space.
Take a moment to declutter your space, this will help you to see your space and see the area that you are working with. The first step that we did was to measure the space. Our space measured 88′ x 95′. We didn’t want the bar to go into the bay window area, because we are looking to expand/change that area in the near future. So the space that I am working on is 62′ x 25′ x 34.5′.
2. Buy or Build your Base Cabinet.
The next step we took was to buy our base cabinet. We went with one unit that met all of the storage needs that we were looking for. Drawers and drawers and clean lines. After measuring your space choose the base cabinets of your choice. I have linked the ones that I have used: Hampton Unfinished Beech Recessed Panel
3. Build or Buy Shelves.
The floating shelves are our DIY project of the year, that is for sure. I wanted natural, beautiful floating shelves, but I didn’t want to break the budget with this project. The length of the shelves that I wanted (60 in. long) made for higher cost per shelf. So we knew we needed to get crafty with this one. Check out this awesome HOW TO MAKE FLOATING SHELVES post for all the details on how to make floating shelves like ours. But in the meantime, let me give you a little peek at what we did.
Awesome. Do you have instructions on how to hang your floating shelves? Looking forward to the finish bar!
Thanks for asking, yes, this is how we made our floating shelves. This is the link: https://glammedevents.com/portfolio-items/how-to-make-floating-shelves/ I will attach it to the original post as well!
thanks so much!
