I have always wanted a coffee bar. I have admired the many pictures of coffee bars on Pinterest and other blogs and finally decided to create my own. Here is a picture of the final project.
Here is how it started out.
I knew I wanted to paint a graphic of some sort on the top so I headed over to the Graphic Fairy blog and found this wonderful graphic. I enlarged it and traced it on the raw wood.
I had some old carbon paper that I used to trace the pattern on the wood.
I then painted the graphic a light gray color using teeny tiny brushes. The smaller the brush tip the better for this part.
After the paint dried I stained the top using a dark walnut stain and finished it off with a matte polyurethane.
