The Addition Of A Gorgeous Coffee Bar Gave This Room A Much-Needed Makeover

If you’re anything like me, then you’ve come to terms with the fact that your body doesn’t actually work without coffee.

Devotees of this elixir of the gods plan their lives around morning cups and trips to the cutest cafes in town, but what if those two things could collide in the comfort of your own home?

If that sounds like Heaven on Earth to you, then you’ve come to the right place. Imgur user EvoLLLL decided that their space needed a facelift, so they paid beautiful homage to everyone’s favorite drinks by installing a coffee bar that doubles as wine bar. In other news, I’m probably going to move into their house. I’m sure it’ll be fine.

If you want to create a little nook that will make your house the go-to hangout spot, here’s how it’s done!

This is what EvoLLLL started with. Needless to say, it was a little dated.

First, they removed the shelves, mirrors, and trim.

Then the unit itself had to come out so that an outlet could be installed.

After sanding off the double-sided tape that was used to hold the mirrors in place, EvoLLLL chose an accent color for the frame of the cabinet.

New overhead lighting was next on the list. They purchased theirs at IKEA.

And what’s cuter than a chalkboard backdrop? Nothing.

EvoLLLL writes that using chalkboard paint is a total pain, so it’d probably be best to let each layer dry completely overnight for smooth results.

After that, the crafter created a wooden counter on the bottom and placed new trim on the three remaining sides.

For the sake of saving money and time, they reinstalled the original shelf.

To put their mugs on display and keep them within arm’s reach, they added a few hooks to the back wall.

And what coffee and wine bar would be complete without a few wine glass racks?

All they had to do after that was plug in their coffee maker and espresso machine to drive the cafe feel home.

Just don’t expect to make any frappuccinos here, folks.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I need one of these in my apartment as soon as possible. You can all come over for a cup!

This Guy REALLY Wanted To Get Into This Pub, But His Shoes Didn’t Fit The Dress Code

Back in my college days, I was super committed to my favorite pub. I’d arrive early to get a seat on game days and stay late to keep the bartenders company. What this Irish guy did, though, deserves a round of applause.

Recently, Ruaírí Brannigan went to his favorite pub to get a drink, but there was one problem: His sandals weren’t up to dress code. So, Brannigan did what any logical person would do and bought the only pair of shoes he found in his size at a nearby shop. They happened to be women’s flats, but does that really matter when you need a drink?

An Sibin Irish Pub posted this picture of Brannigan in his brand-new shoes. I don’t know about you, but I think he looks absolutely fabulous!
