Rustic Fridge Bar / Coffee Bar
I've looked everywhere for bars that could hold an electric beer fridge and they were soooo expensive! So, we decided to make our own! The result was better than anything I could have imagined!
First, measure the dimensions of your mini fridge. Our fridge was 21.3L" x 21.3W" x 31.4H" tall. You'll want to add a couple of inches of width and depth to allow for proper ventilation per fridge instructions. We decided to make the bar 62"L x 26.5W" x 33"H.
Measure and cut five 62"L boards for the top of the bar. Use wood glue on the joints and clamp the boards into place.
Place pocket holes into wood and use 2 inch screws to clamp the pieces together.
First, measure, mark and cut the wood to build out the frame of the bar.
Our design called for a 23.5" space for the fridge and a 25.5 space for the right shelf space.
The right side of the bar (shelve side) called for 21"W.
Place two pieces of wood at the top of the bar.
Measure and cut 10 21"L boards for the shelves of the bar. Use wood glue on the joints and clamp the boards into place.
Make sure to sand the bar really well before staining the bar. We used three coats of the stain.
We sealed with three coats of polyurethane.
