Is this bar not gorgeous!?! Can't get much more retro than that! We will not be having the tv there, we will be having a mirror like the image below, but with the sundae and soda shop looking glasses flanking it on either side. It pained us to seal up a window, but there was no point in replacing it or worrying about water getting in. They're your typical tiny basement windows, anyway, so we wouldn't be missing much light. Plus we're putting in a sliding door where the old garage door was, and that will bring light. (sheetmetalartcreations.com)
We're going to be building the bar, and i like the rounded edge to this. To keep it classy, we are probably going to do black granite, but it needs to have this chrome wraparound edge to maintain the diner vibe. What i want it some sort of conglomeration of this and the blue bar b/c we have the space for it.
I already have a Beatles poster, and there's the neutral in the curtains. Proof i am not making this color scheme up! (Casa Moxie)
I like this image for the colors and the props. We have a retro inspired popcorn machine, much wall decor with popcorn and burgers, and fries, and reels, oh my. Old school looking pendant lights and framed movie posters. We have this strange desire for an old gas station pump as well. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but we are super excited for the day this becomes a reality.
Well, mostly S wants to make the magic screen come down. Talk about motivation.
