I should first tell you that there have been so many disappointing trips to the thrift store. I think that is the thing about thrifting though. You either go and find a million magnificent things, or you scour the place for hours only to leave empty handed and hungry...which for me usually equates to crabby, and that's not fun for anyone! Recently, the leaving empty-handed type of trips have been our case, so with a long list of items on our wish list we have come to carry no expectations while searching through our favorite stores.
Except for last weekend. This was not one of those days and we found the perfect redo for a coffee bar we planned to create.
Here is the little lovely before. Scratched, worn, and old. Perfect!
After a good sanding and a couple coats of primer and paint....
we got our coffee bar!
I think my favorite part of the whole refinished product is the saturated seafoam color and cool glass knobs we scored. Okay, maybe the baskets too. Oh! And the jars on top. Hell, I love it all! Just a few more accessories to add, a good cup of coffee to go with it, and our little corner cafe will be complete. See the breakdown below for the cost of our coffee bar.
