“le bar iz now OPEN” lol

I’ve finally finished the revamping of my bar….

I got this BAR piece from freecycle way back in…..__end of January_(my how time flies)__ {see full story here}
and I was inspired by these bars & you can see what was my first makeshift bar {here}

Love Love Love this wallpaper found at Sherwin Williams
and here is my COCKTAIL’S bar in all its glory….


here’s a look at the before & YES PEOPLE there was already stuff inside lol I had to test drive it duhhhhh
I did prime the whole thing before wallpaper & paint
Le bar iz now open and in use.  All my lovely glassware has found its new happy home.  Don’t you love it when a beautiful plan just comes together.


disregard the mess behind just see my happy grin as my awesome wallpaper goes up
thanks to Ja of JCostaPhotography for all your help putting up the paper and taking pics luff ya 😉


for the inside i used {left over from the display case}
Pooh’s favorite things by Behr

and if you notice below I’m so anal/crazy that I needed the paper to look like it wrapped around so I made it line up
Here are some pics of the process…


Here are all the tools i used..
keep a towel or rag handy


This tool was awesome I guess these companies really do know what there doing.  😉 ha ha

and my trusty pencil came in handy to poke the holes for the shelf and also the one for where the door hinges onto the bar section

My “borrowed besties Chino” stopped by and tighten the doors for me as well as fixing the hinge on the bar that was sticking he’s the bestest!!

It was his last night before taking off for 3 weeks to Puerto Rico so I made sure to get good use of him….
