Navy Pool House Snack Bar
In all the excitement of sharing our newest project last week, I haven’t abandoned the pool house! I’m still (like most everyone else in the midst of a project) waiting on deliveries. The painter finished up this week, so I am ready to debut the navy pool house snack bar area!
I’ve shared little sneak peeks here and there, but I don’t think I have shared my favorite part – the cute appliances! I’m so excited I was able to partner with Big Chill Appliances for this project. They have such fun retro-style appliances that I have long admired. I’m so glad I finally had a spot to use them.
Their retro mini fridge was the perfect bit of fun for this space.
Of course, they pop perfectly against my favorite navy cabinet color – Blue Note by Benjamin Moore.
Navy Pool House Snack Bar
Here’s a look at the planning stage –
and where we ended up! Putting these cabinets in the angled part of the room was a great storage solution.
Here are a few pulled-back shots so you can see how the bar relates to the dining space.
The snack bar is right around the corner from the staircase. The staircase placement originally created an awkward spot, but this design is a great use of the space.
I’m thrilled that we have a spot for drinks and snacks right by the pool now. Although I had perfected carrying enormous snack trays from the kitchen with my kids’ 52 zillion requests, I won’t miss my attempts at filling drink orders and waitressing. Now everyone can just pop up the stairs and help themselves.
I haven’t filled the cabinets just yet, but I plan on keeping crackers, nuts, and of course microwave popcorn for the Big Chill Pro Microwave.
This fridge can store so many drinks. I love that it has a spot for wine bottles as well. I plan on stocking the drawer with handheld fruits like tangerines and cherries this summer to balance out all the popcorn and snacks.
The antique brass hardware with the chrome and white appliances is a fun mix as well.
The Mr. and I tackled this small tile backsplash and wall before working on the big flooring project downstairs. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I love the color variations in the tile that give it a handmade feel.
I went with plastic chairs again (you’ve heard me go on and on about wet bathing suits at this point). I love that these coordinate with the dining area chairs, but they are still a bit different with the lower backs and wood-toned legs.
I used faux stems here so I don’t have to remember to water them, and these are the best I’ve seen! I rounded out the area with a little artwork I snagged on a Target run last weekend.
I’m so happy with how this whole area came out. From a weird little unusable nook to a perfectly practical and pretty snack bar area. It’s a small space, but we packed a lot of storage and functionality into it.

Love how it turned out! Can’t wait to see the bunk room side!
Hello! This is just beautiful, well done! I don’t see a name or link for those stools… would you mind sharing? Thank you!
Hey they are from Target and I can’t seem to get the link to work sorry about that!
Love it, super cute!! How many faux stems are in your vase? Looks like two but seems very full. :)
I think this is 3 stems thanks!
It looks amazing, Kelly! Someone asked about Diet Coke in that cute little fridge. How about Pinot Grigio? I was at Target today and went to check the framed art you have. None in stock. :-(
Haha I happen to have 2 bottles perfectly chilled in there! :)
Perfect…one for each of us! 👍🏻
I love this so much! Love the colors and the touch of modern!
It is amazing how much larger the nook looks once it is finished. Such a great use of an awkward space. It looks like it was always supposed to be there now. It turned out fabulous.
Thank you Traci!
Beyond fabulous! Super job on the tile!
Everything is just perfect! I love your style so much! How many stems did you use in the PB vase? 🥰
I used 3! Then I bought 2 more for my mantel because they are so good ha!
The space is amazing! And that fridge is so cool, just love it! Another job well done!!

Cant wait… the parties the kids can have this summer and you how fun… might be nice to have a ring camera installed that way you can spy on the kids from the house(can you tell Ive raised two teen boys) !!! Ha … happy decorating.
