Luxury Lounge (or How I Built a Bar Area With Scrap Wood)


I decided to build a Bar area in my garage (needed a place to get away from the wife but don't tell her).

Step 1: neighbors offered me some old bookcases (2) or they were going to put them out to the trash. So I took them and used them for a couple of years for general storage.

Step 2: A friend builds things out of fallen trees and when I commented on how nice this piece was he not only gave it to me but he also delivered it and set it up for me (thanks Red). So now I had my Bar and shelves (bookcases) to hold everything.

Step 3: It is nice but I felt it needed something else. but what? ...Hmmn
I know it needs something on that white wall in back of the Bar.
