The little wine bar transformation didn't take too much effort at all, to take it from a generic-big-box-store-wine-bar to a industrial-farmhouse-just-the-right-amount-of-rustic-wine-bar. You know, I am really a cottage style girl, but I appreciate and enjoy farmhouse decor in other people's homes, and when I came upon this while out thrifting, it's clean lines caught my eye.
I texted my daughter (whose home is a spectacular example of warm-yet-industrial-farmhouse style) to get her opinion. Of course, my first inclination was to paint the little wine bar white and rough sand it, then replace the glass shelf with a wooden one, and add an additional shelf above the wine bottle area.
She loved it, but pointed out that it was perfectly farmhouse-ready in the original black, and I am not sure why I hadn't seen that. (My first mode of operation is always to paint an item white, because I am of a more cottage style mindset, I guess.)
I added some wood shelves I had cut from plywood, and used my trusty Annie Sloane dark wax to add that deep stained vintage patina, and I the wine bar transformation was complete.
And a fun little project, at that.
I'll take it down to my booth later today, or tomorrow, where it will find it's new forever home.Do you reinvent pieces in your home to take them from the mass produced look to unique? I'd LOVE for you to share with me!
