Almost time for a frosty cold one

Hey what happened with that basement bar you were working on?  Well the basement bar is almost done.  I am excited to sit down and have a cold frosty beer to celebrate our hard work.  Well, J actually worked way harder at this then I did.  I only stained (and helped with cutting some of the boards), he did everything else.  I'm pretty proud of him.

It's been 90% finished for a few weeks now, I just haven't gotten any pictures of it.  I can't believe it's finished.  Our friends were very impressed with it at our party.  Everyone had to stand behind it.

The wine racks are in, but need to be re-adjusted.  But I have to say, they look mighty pretty.  And no, that's not wine in there.  We're not really wine people (except to cook with and to make sangria).  That was are good liquor we were hiding from our friends (hey sometimes you have to do that at a big party, don't judge).

As you can see, we still have some tools sitting on it to finish up a few of the last little bits of the bar.  And for note, the Jagermeister is not mine, that stuff is gross.

We still have a couple pieces of trim that need to be added.  Then it will be officially done.  We also have to find some bar stools we like.  We're having a difficult time finding ones we like as well as ones that will be tall enough.  But we'll keep looking and I'm sure we'll find something.  We also need to install the lights, but that might be a bigger project then expected.  We'll have to wait for J's dad to come look and tell us what he thinks.  Then it's time to start decorating our basement, YAY!!!!

What are some of the projects you are working on?  Doesn't finishing a big project feel oh so good?
