I am really going to start getting a reputation after this post.
I have waxed on about built in beverage centers, setting up a bar in your bay windows, and even went so far as turn an innocent baby changing table into a bar cart. Now I’ve taken our TV armoire and made it into a bar cabinet (again).
This is the armoire that once stored our old tube TV (two houses ago), then very haphazardly became a place to store our liquor (one house ago), and then became a home office (current house). It’s had a lot of life in it’s years.
When I decided to build a wall of bookcases in our living room, I was going to have the armoire moved out of the room, but reconsidered. It is one of the few pieces of furniture that we’ve had for many years that I don’t want to either kick to the curb or paint. It has a pretty diamond pattern on the doors and is a super heavy and well built piece. I always thought this cabinet would make a great bar with a little elbow grease, and so, in the midst of the biggest carpentry project I have ever taken on by myself I thought it would be a super idea to start a whole other project.
Did I mention this bar cabinet is fashioned out of an old ping pong table, a broken outdoor umbrella, left over trim found in the garage, and a bit of shopping the house?
