Kitchen island turned custom bar

Materials: Groland Kitchen Island, Hutton Wine rack

I set out to make a custom bar for my apartment, and the Groland Kitchen Island proved the perfect starting point! I left off the towel bars when assembling and custom built a small shelf unit to subdivide the space beneath the counter into three units as well as provide extra shelving for glasses and bar tools (nothing fancy, just plywood and nails).

The Ikea Hutton Wine Rack fit the space to the left perfectly and gives room to hold wine bottles, and on the right I installed two wine glass racks (from Bed, Bath, & Beyond) screwed into a small piece of plywood and seated up under the counter piece. Even hanging large glasses leaves plenty of room for bottles beneath them. To unify the combined pieces, I painted the entire undersection turquoise (high gloss for protection and easy clean-up). The top is IKEA’s lovely butcherblock, which I just stained with several coats of wood stain to deepen the color to a light amber and add protection from spills. Cheers!
