I built this coffee bar for my wife’s birthday this past fall 2018. (Sorry I never uploaded it)

I used concrete to make the countertop and the lower shelf and also added Alexa-enabled an RGBW led light strip to it to help add some ambiance to it and the house. It weighs upwards of 700-800 lbs and only cost me two smashed fingernails(that have regrown) and about 400$

I used unfinished cedar 4×4’s for the outside posts and then used 1” Pine in various widths to dress the sides overplywood panels.

The cabinet door is held in place with a 12lb resistance neodymium magnet and has a led motion sensor light bar inside to illuminate the coffee and the supplies.

I used bags of various bolts, nails, screws and hammer markings to accent and distress the wood before finishing with Jacobean and spray-on poly

Concrete was sealed with food grade (non-toxic) concrete sealer

I used a concrete mixer and charcoal die to give it a more grey colored concrete finish

This took me about a month to build.

It gets well used and most likely have no intention to ever move it again. Lol. Whenever we move and build another home.. it won’t be joining us lol

Wow, beautiful! Our “drink bar” is on the in-kitchen desk. This would be am amazing upgrade if I had the space. Thanks for sharing! Love the chalkboard back.

Great build. The concrete top almost looks like stainless steel.

I think you missed a photo of the Her
and you having coffees. It would have added a nice touch.

I’ll bet if you move you try to take it with you.

Nice!! I have something very similar in my home. It always draws my friends…and we all end up sitting around, sipping coffee. Great job.
