One thing I do like doing is making something our of boring set of drawers . yes you can paint them and make them look nice but what about making them useful .
So that is what I wanted to do when I picked up some drawers that I thought would ook lovely as wine bars.
This set I knew how I wanted it to look even before I picked this up from the seller .
I really wanted a funky bar , something eye catching.
I wanted to keep the wee cupboard on the bottom but wanted it more open so I could see in.
So after a paint , I cut out the opening , I knew I did not want to leave it this way but have something rustic .
So I added chicken wire.
Then I started putting together the wine bar shelving ,using the faces off the drawers.
I also made a matching pair for the wee cupboard as well , then I added battery operated stick on lights , so at night I
could light up the wine bar :-)
I left the wine bar white for awhile but then decided I wanted to give it a pop of color .
So painted it duck egg and added some stencils and black waxed .
I really like how it turned out.
I love stencils , they give a piece more style
So then it was aging and then it was finished .
This is what it looks like at night with the lights on .
Love how it turned out .
