‘Very simple’: Mum-of-two creates kitchen bar for £19 using genius space-saving hack



    A breakfast bar worktop can really bring the kitchen together, but it can also cost a lot of money to implement one into a kitchen. Harriet Lees, 24, mum-of-two from Telford, shared her DIY hack for just £19.

    “I’d definitely recommend doing this with somebody else, as we had to level it out before we screwed in the bracket.

    “I’d advise to put another two brackets on each side of the shelf for extra support.

    “The total cost was £95.”

    This included the two chairs as well as all the tools needed to fix the floating shelf to the wall.

    “I can’t believe the result. I love it, and the kids love it and I also have the space back in my kitchen.

    “The bar fits a full sized plate and the kids love eating from it.”

    Harriet explained that the new breakfast bar saves space and she feels as if she has her kitchen back.

    She said: “It was very simple and very easy to do, nothing that I struggled with.

    “I didn’t have the money at the time to fork out on an expensive bar that would probably have been a few hundred pounds, so I’m really happy with the result.”

    Tom Church, co-founder of LatestDeals.co.uk said: “Breakfast bars can typically cost hundreds or even thousands of pounds.

    “I’d never have thought you could get one for less than £20, but Harriet’s idea of using an IKEA floating shelf is genius!

    “Her new table set up is stylish, cool, and really wallet-friendly and simple to copy.

    “I also love the look of the Argos stools and the DC Fix.

    “DC Fix is one of my favourite materials to give your home a stylish effect without spending a fortune.

    “Using that finishing touch makes the stools absolutely perfect for the space!”
