From Blah to a Beautiful Bar

See the updated beverage bar here.
My girlfriend was recently getting rid of a table and was kind enough to give it to me!  I just LOVE free!!  Since I entertain a lot I decided I wanted to create a beverage bar.  I want to be able to reuse it as an island  if I need to in the future so, I kept it pretty simple.  I still need to add a bottle opener to it and am thinking about adding some awesome antique metal wheels.
I decided to paint it with a beautiful white spray paint called Heirloom White.  It actually matches my FREE kitchen table perfectly!  I roughed up the edges with sandpaper to antique it and added crystal knobs.  The larger knobs look much better and add some glam to it.  I topped it with my cafe chalkboard and all the necessities for a fabulous evening ;)  I added straws, limes, a ton of mason jars for cocktails, wine, cork storage, ice scoops, my chalkboard ice and beverage bucket etc.  This can be used as an Italian soda bar, or a coffee bar.  I am sure I will use it for all of the above.
 Here are the roughed up edges
 I got this awesome victorian looking hand clip and clipped a towel on it to help with spills.

I think I'm gonna have to sit and enjoy a glass of wine :)

  5. Hi Molly, it's Christine from Little Brags again...I love this chalk board and frame. I was wondering if I could ask you another question. I know you have blogged about a product you use on frames called "Rub it on". Did you use that product on this frame as well? If so would you mind giving me the name of the color? I am working on creating a little gallery wall in my house and I just love this picture for inspiration...xoxoxxo


Thanks for the lovely comments! Each and everyone means so much to me! xo
