We visited my scrumptious little nephew in Miami and then my parents-in-law on the opposite coast, and had some wonderful forced family fun. It’s been a few years since we caught the tradewinds in our sails and our time away was so good for our little family! Sitting in front of this with a book in my lap wasn’t too awful either…….
When we began the project we tore out the carpet and scored and stained the dirty concrete floors (from the old shop). To stain a concrete floor it doesn’t need to be perfect. Sometimes the more stained and distressed the better!
My husband added some old beams to give the space more character. My husband has used old barn beams in his custom homes for over 25 years. We made the mirror from old ceiling tiles and added this console from Brazil
He had one of his guys build the cabinet behind the bar. We painted and distressed the finish and added handmade hardware from Brazil. The top is made from an old piece of barn flooring. We purchased the actual bar counter and stools online. If we were going to stay in this house long term I would replace them with something more fitting for the space.

The door to the actual cellar was a reject from a job. Steve had the top panel removed, old glass installed, and the grate was made by local artisan Bob Signorello.
