Haha, no cover, just bring snacks.
Here is what I did in my Basement.
Im currently collecting bottle tops and have my whole family doing the same, so I can do the same thing you did. Did you glue them down? And what did you put on top so I have an idea? Thanks for the help man!
Yes I did glue them down with some crazy glue. The last thing you want is for them to move when you are pouring the epoxy over the top of it. I used a product called Kleer Kote it is an epoxy based product. If you have any other questions shoot me a BM
Thanks Man, I really appreciate it! Ill be in contact!
I recently finished this restoration and rebuild of a 1930's Art Deco back and front bar.
The back bar came from a demolition in St. Paul Minnesota, and through some research we established it appeared in an obscure movie titled That Was Then... This Is Now. It featured Morgan Freeman, Emelio Estevez, and Craig Sheffer. The bar as seen in the movie was 50 feet in length and was cut down into two sections. I restored one for myself, of which I'll dig up photos for a later post. The remaining pieces I used to build my brothers.
Two bars, three years, a lot of sweat and sawdust. Establishing the fact it appeared in a film was priceless and fun.
Great story, and nice save!
that is awesome and the bar looks great!
Here's my setup: http://imgur.com/a/ALRus
VERY NICE... I also appreciate your poster choices, own a few of those myself...
i want to be just like you when i grow up.
Dude. Impressive rack-a-loons. You know, among other things.
Just finished it this past weekend. Pretty small when looking at others but I'm really happy with how it turned out. Cabinets are stock from Home Depot, finished them myself. It has a granite tile bar top too. Plenty of room for glasses, liquor and a small beer fridge.
Do you offer tours & tastings in that mecca? Top-notch, sir. TOP-NOTCH.
Well rain and work slowed my progress down, but the past 2 days been killer! Got the gutters and patio door on the garage, sheet rock, insulation and the lighting done. Tomorrow ceiling fan, paint, and bar shell getting done. Should be completely done by this weekend! Stoked!
awesome work in this thread. congratulations.
Got the bar done, paint on and one coat of stain for the bar(thanks to the wife)!
Just need another coat of stain then the epoxy for the bar counter top, then to do the floor. Have another coat of white and black paint for the Flyers strips! When floor is done shuffle board table comes in! excited!
Pssst....You put the lights on the floor.
Lol damn iPhone.
looking good so far... but THIS is the part I cannot wait for.
Since you flipped the pictures now I'm the dope!
Nothing super crazy, but perfect for me....I was trying to get away from the typical "bar setup" as I enjoy looking at people when a conversation is had.....plus the table converts to an 8 man poker table when needed.
Here's some pics-
it's nothing much here, i live in a smaller one bedroom apartment with my wife, so i was given a corner next to the dining room table for my kegerator, so i decorated a bit.
Whatever it takes to get that space ya need!
Are they drawings on the wall or labels or what?
i'm at work, so i cropped an image i had of them so it may look weird. But they're cheap ikea frames (they don't sell them anymore ) but i think they were like 4 for $2? somewhere around there. And they're just coasters from different breweries that i like that i picked up at different bars. (dont mind the mikes... i like the way it looks not a fan of the product )
And the poster thats about 1/2 up is from fat tire that my sister picked up for me somewhere.
Nice. Coasters. I couldn't tell what they were from the picture! Looks good
Finally done! Did the floor grey, goes good with the Flyers colors! Shuffleboard a go!
Got Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada Pale ale on tap but buddy brought down some Yards!
Nice! I want either Shuffle board or Bubble Hockey!! Can't decide!
Bubble hockey is awesome! But the real big good ones "super chexx", go for a few grand.
I know that's why I don't have one yet!! I priced a couple at like $6000....
Yeah it's quite awful.
I always wanted either Shuffleboard or Bubble Hockey....!!
Wow... Now that's impressive!
Did you build a shuffle board or buy one?
