18 Dec Christmas Coffee Bar with New Shelves
Last March my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I told him that I wanted him to build me open shelves for our coffee bar. Fast forward several months and a few projects in between and we have new shelves for our coffee bar. First, let’s recap how they looked then. I had this rustic shelf from Hobby Lobby which I loved but I didn’t feel like it truly fit with the rest of the style of our home.
To see what this space looked like when we moved in, check out this post from a few years ago. It’s quite different now 🙂
I sold the Hobby Lobby shelf and built these new shelves with a couple 1×12 pine boards and simple wooden corbels from Home Depot.
My inspiration for these shelves came from one of my favorite bloggers whom I’ve followed for many years – Bre from Rooms For Rent. You can see her open shelves here. I love the traditional, timeless look of these shelves. The soft weathered wood tones mixed with the simple, white corbels is classic.
As I said, I loved the old shelf from Hobby Lobby but I don’t use a lot of black in my decor and while my home is somewhat rustic, it’s also very much traditional especially given the fact that our home is a New England Cape Cod style home.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our coffee bar transformation and I will share a post on how I built them soon.
