Breakfast Nook Transformation | Butcher Block Bar


This "breakfast nook" was hardly functional. In a small galley kitchen, a breakfast table would jut out into walking space and never actually got used. We wanted to create more counter space, and a spot where people could gather chat and have a cocktail in this galley kitchen.

Get ready for it.... BEFORE :: 

Enter, butcher block bar. I had an idea to build a bar in this space, and Harrison brought my vision to life. 

We decided to use antique corbels to give it a unique effect, and stained the butcher block to match the hardwoods. 

Beadboard was added underneath and painted to match the lower cabinets (BM Kendall Charcoal)

We added grasscloth wallpaper over the bar to give it some texture and life. Then, added in pendant lights, bar stools and art. 

VOILA! If you feel like a butcher block bar or something of the like could be the perfect fit in your space, get in touch! We'd love to help.
