Since the beginning of this project, we have been planning on incorporating a bar into the basement remodel. Our goal is to create a space where people can hang out, watch tv, have a drink, etc. that was not the living room. Our living room is at the very front of our home and it’s small, so it’s not a great place for a bunch of people to hang out. Plus, the previous owners of our home had already sort of finished the basement, so we had a (very rough) place to start. You can see photos of how it looked before [here].
We still don’t have our pallet ceiling finished (or even started for that matter), but we had a couple of free hours on Sunday and wanted to accomplish something for this room. So we built a hanging bar!
I love the chunky rope, the hardware, and the beautiful cedar plank we used to build this bar – it’s very masculine, and since we’re building a man cave here, that’s exactly what we were going for!
I’m just going to share a couple photos because since it’s not decorated yet, there’s not much to see. BUT – what do you guys think about me sharing the “how to” for this project? Is that something you’d like to see? If so, let me know in the comments and I can do it!
Don’t forget that you can sign up to receive my emails – I send one out every time I publish a new post, so you’ll never miss out on anything that’s happening on Shady Lane! There’s a sign up form at the very top of the page. Let me know if you need any help!
