Guys!! It’s done! The DIY Basement bar is done! After a solid four weeks of planning , dreaming, building, learning, cursing, yes all of that…I can officially say I am done. And man oh man, I AM in love. Thanks to Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living for hosting the New Year, New Room Challenge, because it lit a fire under me to get this space done. You can check out all of the reveals from the other participants.

You can see how the space came together from week one, week two, week three, and week four. But enough about the past, let’s get into the present, more importantly all of the details that brought this DIY Basement Bar space together. Let’s start with the cabinets, while completing this project and sharing progress on IG, one of my most asked questions is where are the cabinets from, and what is the paint color? Well, the top glass front cabinets are the Ikea Havsta Cabinets with separate base and they are great quality and I love them. To give them a more custom look, we added crown molding to the top. The paint color is Intrigue by Benjamin Moore. The shelves are one of my favorite features. Styling them was so much fun!
The bottom cabinets are linked here. Already assembled cabinets are the best and most convenient.
You can shop the shelves here:
For the shelves on the DIY Basement Bar I used are 2×12′ stained using this stain. To install them, we drilled directly through the sides of the cabinets. That makes them the most secure for sure. For the brass tipping rails along the edges of the shelves, I purchased them from here. For the counter, remember we used this marbling effect along with this epoxy technique. I am so in love with how it came out. If you are interested in trying this technique, I highly recommend this kit. This gallery wall is just an eclectic mix of art and frames. I still need to add a few more pieces. The art was sourced from Artfully Walls, Target and West Elm. I love how cool and modern this light is. The table and chairs were the perfect addition. They are perfectly complimented by this rug from Loloi Rugs. . Everything else is a matter of styling and and voila, we are here. I’ve linked everything for the basement in my LiketoKnowit shop. You can shop everything in the entire space here.
It’s absolutely beautiful! I love the color choices in here❤️❤️
