First I needed to decide on what I actually wanted or rather needed to make my home bar “THE BAR”. I finally figured that there were 5 things that I absolutely needed to have or my home bar would just be a counter where I kept the alcohol. The countertop/table: The first thing I decided I needed was a counter top or a table, preferably not too big, something I could set up at the side of the room. So I set myself researching. I came across a lot of stuff, second hand and brand new, but...
