DIY Barn Door Coffee Bar Center

A DIY Barn Door Coffee Bar never looked so good!

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.

Barn Door Coffee Bar for the Home Kitchen

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!

Copper Sliding Barn Door Hardware painted with Rustoleum Metallic Finish I used Rust-Oleum 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 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.

Ryobi 18V Hammer Drill

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!

Shiplap Faux Fireplace with Limewash and Chalk Paint

Faux Fireplace with Hidden Storage

A Faux Fireplace with a touch of Shiplap, show me more!

I have always been a fan of a cozy fireplace, so this faux fireplace with storage was a no brainer. My home didn't come equipped with a fireplace so I thought; why not make my own? Luckily, my good friends over at Home Depot helped to make my faux fireplace come to life!

Shiplap Faux Fireplace with Limewash and Chalk Paint

One thing I wanted to make sure of was not to  waste all that space on the hearth, so I decided to turn mine into storage. Perfect for DVDs, books or anything you want to store in there.

The drawers were a breeze with my Kreg Drawer slide Jigs and my beloved Kreg Jig (Of Course) and I was super excited about the soft-close ball-bearing drawer slides. I am obsessed!

After building this I thought man, Im not too shabby (humble brag).  Honestly, part of me just wanted to leave it like this...but that wasnt going to happen.Faux Fireplace
This was my first time I used MDF and man did I like working with it. Definitely much easier to paint, by far!
One of the most enjoyable parts of this faux fireplace with storage was painting the brick! This was my first time using this Romabio lime wash and it was super easy to apply! I really love how the limewash keeps that brick feel.
Paint can sometimes drown it out, so if you want a real defined brick look, limewash is the way to go. To see how I created the first look click here. The limewash is great for interior and exterior brick and it made my faux brick really come to life.

I am a HUGE fan of chalk paint and this RUST-OLEUM Chalk Paint didn't disappoint me! I used some aged gray chalk paint just to give the brick a little Flaaava; sooooooo glad I did!

This build was also my first time using a paint sprayer and I'm trying to figure out why no one told me about using one of these before.

Painting is sooooooooooooooo much easier with one and it turns out clean. The Wagner Flexio 590 was super easy to set up, and I was super pleased with the paint job! I will be using this baby on the rest of my paint projects for sure!
