So it only took a month but I finally got my juice bar delivered! I mentioned that I ordered it a while ago (feels like forever ago!) and it came in on time. However, it was missing a KEY component (namely the bottom piece that builds the entire foundation) so I waited. and waited for them to send the missing piece. The company sent the wrong piece so the waiting game continued. They finally re-sent the entire package/island and told me to pick out the missing piece. The day it came in, Mr. HungryYogi put it together and our juice bar officially became a thing.
Remember how the space was empty next the fridge?
Here it is now in all it’s fresh goodness glory:
I really like that the island fits PERFECTLY in the space. As snug as a rug and both the juicer and blender fit on the chopping block island comfortably.
*PS I got the blender I was lusting after.
The island has this nifty area for trash which works perfectly on juicing days because of all of the pulp.
It also has a drawer which I use to store needed tools and gadgets for juicing and smoothie making.
I love these built in shelves for our vitamins and our handy dandy travel blender.
And of course the herb garden:
and our DIY juice bar sign!
For the most part I was able to make the juice bar exactly what I hoped it would be and am thrilled to be finished with the kitchen.
Our DIY project was fun, exhausting but really rewarding. We saved a LOT of moolah doing it ourselves and enjoy our kitchen so much because we know the struggle it took to make it. I learned a lot about myself (I hate sanding) and a lot about my husband during the process (he is a perfectionist to the extreme).
In the next week or so I will tally our expenses up and let you know how much it costs us to complete our kitchen upgrade on the cheap!
