Instructions for making your breakfast bar step by step

First, choose the most beautiful side of the board to become the visible face of your bar. If you are going to do with two boards together, apply glue on the back, leaving a distance of about 5 cm to the edge so that when juntas glue the sides will not overflow. Aligns well and let dry.

The height of the table

Before you put on the table to screw the brackets you should know what height you will. To do this, sit on the stool and check what position you are comfortable and mark on the wall with a pencil where it will stand.

Then screw the brackets to the wall with four long screws, making sure that it is as straight as possible. Take the wooden board and SUPPORT, at the end you already have installed. With the tape mark where you should place the second square and, once again, make sure it is straight. You can help a level in this step. Wood supports on the second square and places the other longer screws.

The final touch

To end this craft, sanding the corners if they are too rough or if the overlay tables have been the slightly ragged edges. Thoroughly clean the surface to then apply the wax. So you leave the wood with his natural tone, but if you want to give a touch of color also you can paint with chalk paint, for example.

Already you have ready your breakfast bar where you will enjoy pleasant moments while contemplating the landscape that appears through the window. A very nice way to start the day, do not you think?
