    Some of you might remember a few months ago when I asked around about trying to find somebody to build me a bar for my basement. Well, a Fanatic named Jonathan Brand saw my post, hit me up and created this masterpiece for me. I could not be happier with it. I'm sitting here working/drinking a Busch Light/watching at it right now. If anybody wants to see pictures of the other side, I can post those too but there is a TON of cabinet space and it's personalized for my mini-fridge/wine chiller as well. Hit me up if you're interested in potentially having Jonathan build you one as I told him I'd try to get him some side business on CF. Happy V-Tines Day everyone!

    The only problem now is the bar is too fancy for the stools! Seriously though, it looks great. Looks like he does a real fine job.

    Funny you say that. My wife was OBSESSED with silver stools. I kept telling here that we need to go with black. Got the silver, neither one of us like them. So I'm actually taking them back and getting some wood black ones instead. WIll make it look a lot better.

    He did an amazing job. More affordable and better quality than anything you can buy in a furniture store, that I've seen at least.

    I concur. The barstools just don't seem to jive with the rest of the ambiance.

    When I do mine I want to have a stained glass wall. Good thing I learned how to do stained glass in one of my architectural design studios at Iowa St. Just need to come up with the design.
