A good friend of mine offered up an old style cabinet TV.. and for some reason it called out to become a bar! Thank you Sally!
This project is an experiment in MANY ways. It's the first time I tackled grouting. First time I've cut glass. First time I sewed a curtain. Because of all these firsts... I was scared to invest moula and the result is that it is also recycled in many ways!
The TV insided have been brought away to stay out of a land fill. The shelves, are mostly pieces of old mdf board that have been in the attic since my move... (they weren't deep enough so I ended up gluing multiple ones together). The MP3 player drawer... is a cigar box, found somewhere. The speakers, which you can't seen.. we also an attic find. And the mirrored glass, was formerly hanging up in the kiddo's bathroom :-)
LED rope lights, light up the curtains & insides when the room is darker
The white string on this side is the pull to open & close the curtains.
The glass wine bucket, was kicking around the house taking up space. The fake pewter grapes were taken off, and it's shape was the start of the feel for the top... which the kiddo has decided looks like a hurricane.
I had a lot of fun building this, and some challenges too... but I'm happy I stuck to my guns, recycled, and played!
