|So this was sort of the loose plan.|
|Where Bar will go. A Blank Canvas!|
|This space is approximately 16' x 15.5'|
|There's no turning back now|
|Basic outline of bar wall|
|All the pieces cut, just need to assemble them|
|Bar Walls Complete|
|The top plates weren't connected yet|
|This picture shows the rest of the game room area|
Couldn't continue with the bar wall until we had some drywall and 3/4" plywood delivered. So started on the Double Chair Rail.
|Started installing Chair Rail backer|
|Lowe's used to carry the same Chair Rail backer as Ryan but we bought the|
last dozen or so pieces for our media room. This was a product from Menard's
that is fairly close.
|All done with backer, time to add the second piece|
|It's a nice profile. A little different than the media room but nobody will notice|
|Close up of profile. Before gluing in the little wedge return pieces.|
One issue is going to be covering those grooves on the ends. Probably
going to fill with silicone.
With the chair rail done and still no drywall, or plywood... worked on some of the electrical. Going to make a few trips and pick up the cabinets. Also, will need to pick up the material to create the panel boxes below the chair rail just like in the media room.
|Most of the electrical run in the bar. Will need to adjust the box heights for|
the outlets that will be inside the cabinets to account for the shelves.
Below are a few pictures of the furniture, materials, paint and stain we have chosen for the bar.
|This is what we are using to construct our bar top. This is an illustration|
from the company we purchased our Bar Rail, Glass Rail and Drip Edge from.
We will probably buy the Bar Front kits from them as well.
Hardwoods Incorporated, located in Maryland. Quick Service, great products.
|This is what the Bar Rail and the Bar Front Kits look like.|
|Leaning toward the American Walnut|
|Going to do the Goldish Faux on the left around the room|
above the Chair Rail. From the Chair Rail down is
going to be Turkish Coffee (same brown as in Media Room)
|Paint Color for Doors, Casings, Chair Rail and Paneling Below Chair Rail|
Ended up getting a different flooring and also looked at some Rustoleum stains instead of Minwax. Below is a color palette with the new flooring that we actually purchased and two possible stain options. The Dark Walnut would closely match the flooring but would provide no contrast. I didn't like the idea of everything looking the same. There is a time and place where having an all wood room stained exactly the same color with the same wood type would look very elegant. We're going for a rustic, very organic look that gives you a feeling the room evolved over several decades or even a century. The Theme is a Naval Officer's Club (O-Club). We want decor and artifacts from different areas and cultures to reflect the places the Sailor's may have traveled within their careers.
|Antique Woodland Flooring with Wall Color, Faux Design and 2 possible stain|
colors for the cabinets, counter tops and bar top.
Below is the original color palette... superseded by the one above.
|Wall Color, Faux Design, Floor Sample and Bar Stain Color|
|Ordered 7 of these for the Bar. Need 4 more for the Pub Tables|
This stain looks very similar to the American Walnut.
|Another angle. This other chair on the right was a potential option.|
|Ordered these Pub tables for the bar area in Tobacco|
This picture makes them look read but they are not.
We have the same table in our dinette and it is darker.
|Really liked this idea and considered doing something like|
this on the bar top. It looks like it may take some work
and know how though... Ugh!
|Looking at using this for the flooring in the bar and game room.|
This is a Vinyl plank product we saw at Lowes. We used the same type of
flooring in our exercise room and spare bedroom in the basement.
