More work on the bar...

I ended up using a red leather for the top of the bar, instead of one of the samples I showed you earlier.  The brown on the front of the bar isn't leather, but ostrich leather patterned paper...the only patterned paper I had in my stash that looked right.

I started covering the seats of the stools, but I'm not liking the tan suede at all.  I've got a thin black faux leather fabric that's been in my stash for years, I'm going to try that instead.

I'd like to build the shelves for the back-bar this weekend, but I don't think it's a good idea until after the bottles that will go on them arrive.  I want to double-check the dimensions before I start...don't want to waste time and material building shelves that could turn out to be too short to put bottles on.

I like the red leather!

And the paper - it's light, but that might help if the bar gets darkened up by the other things you use.
The green trim looks good, too!


I like the red and green combo too! Is the suede too thick?


It's thick, but not unworkably's that I find both the color and texture wrong.
