I've seen many DIY coffee bars but I wanted to switch things up a bit. A coffee bar with barn doors was the perfect idea. I have been dying to build some furniture with sliding barn doors and I'm so glad it was a SUCCESS. Even better, I have partnered up with my friends over at RYOBI Nation to give you the step by step tutorial. But first lets drool over this DIY barn door coffee bar.
I was trying to come up with some different DIY coffee bar ideas and I must say my favorite part about this build is HANDS DOWN the metallic finish on the barn door hardware. I haven't seen hardware that comes in this finish, so I decided to create my own!

I used Rust-Oleum Stops Rust Bright Coat Spray 314417 Metallic Color 11 Oz, 1-PK, Copper and man does this hardware Shine. The copper pipes and the door pulls just brings it all together. But lets talk about this Rust-Oleum 241526 Comfort Grip by RustOleum. Makes spray painting so much easier. Pops right on in seconds!
More and more I'm learning that I love hidden storage..and this diy barn door coffee bar center was no different! Behind the barn doors is plenty of storage room for all of my coffee supplies that I don't want everyone to necessarily see! I love making unique pieces for my home and this really makes my kitchen worth talking about!
Just a little inside scoop. I always use select pine from Home Depot when using pine wood. It's a little more expensive than regular pine but its so much better to work with and makes my builds a lot cleaner. I always have a struggle with wanting to paint or stain my furniture after I finish building it. It just looks so pretty the way it is.
No build of mine happens without my beloved Kreg Jig K4 Pocket Hole System, but one of my other favorite tools is Ryobi's Hammer Drill. There aren't too many Ryobi tools I haven't tried and their hammer drill is definitely in my top 5. Check out my full tool review on the Ryobi 18V Hammer Drill here. These tools really brought this build together. Let's take one last look!
