Armoire to Bar

I was not successful yesterday.  In the morning we went to look at a camper shell for our truck.  We were not able to bring it home because the jacks did not work, it was on a frame and the gentleman was not there to show us his plan to get it on the truck. That killed the morning.  I wanted to do some mending  but that did not happen because my son and daughter-in-law came over to talk about buying the place when we got back home. We had a nice afternoon and they stayed for fried chicken & cauliflower for dinner. By the time they left it was 6 pm and I had no desire to do anything constructive.

This afternoon we are supposed to go back to pick up the camper shell if the repairs have been completed. In a way I hope it’s not done. But I know we need to get it to the house so Mac can start working on it for the animals to travel.

 

 

Since I found a picture of the armoire that Mac built back in 1997 or 1998, I thought I would show you how I converted it into a bar. The armoire was originally stained golden oak and used as a coat closet.

 

 

 

First I painted the exterior gray and used a sponge and hunter green paint to finish the outside.  

Inside I painted the walls a light green with black shelves and trim.  

We had a bar sign which we installed as well as 2 wine glass hangers.

We decided that mirrors would add extra brightness.

Mac found an old mirror and used it to cover the opening that used to be a drawer.

This is where we keep extra alcohol.

Finally Mac installed a rope light so the lower shelves weren’t so dark.  This turned out great and we can display our many glasses and alcohols.
