Building a breakfast bar in a basement remodel


Ok, so I was asked to construct a breakfast bar in a basement renovation I am doing. I suggested using wall cabinets for the base and to build them up,to the correct height. Customer didn't like that idea, wants it to be more custom. Ok, thought to build the carcass for the bar using traditional 2x4 framing cover interior in 1/2 hardwood and exterior in MDF. Create shelving on interior of bar using 1x4 as supports and 3/4" for shelves. Trim out the front of bar and paint. This was met with "ahhh, not sure" by customer.
Now added a wet bar area, mini fridge and 2 levels, counter height in back and bar height up front!

Anybody have any ideas what else I can't oppose?
