Good morning everyone!
Mr. & Mrs. FYN are going on a kid-free vacation tomorrow! Woo hoo! We'll be skiing in Lake Tahoe through Tuesday. I'm so excited!
With that in mind, I'm putting my "Shop The House Sunday" party up early today and I'll be leaving it up through Wednesday morning of next week. I'll be looking forward to seeing everyone's posts when I get back in Tuesday night.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Okay, here is my "Shop the House" project!
I had an old marble top dresser that was in Pierce's room for awhile until we redecorated it. Check out Pierce's room here!
I saw an idea for a wine bar on another blog which was just the inspiration I needed for "what to do" with this antique piece. I thought I had saved the post, but I didn't, so if you are reading this Miss Wine Bar Transformation Girl (golf ball vase filler!) then give me a shout-out so I can give you credit!
Introducing my new, somewhat "manly" mini bar!
I had grand plans to refinish this piece, take out drawers, install a wine rack, etc. I decided against it because this is an antique. I just gave it a good cleaning with Murphy's oil soap and here it sits in it's imperfect beauty!
This was the somewhat "manly" part. Golf ball vase filler!
I made taper candle holders out of empty IBC rootbeer bottles filled with wood golf tees!
The striped magazine rack used to sit in the study, but now it holds bottles of red wine.
I picked up the wine cooler at Linens 'n Things going out of business sale. It's a Cuisinart and it was $50!
What did I put in the drawers, you ask?
Bottle openers, juicer, bottle stoppers, a cocktail recipe book & some margarita mixes.
Wine, mojito and cordial glasses
Serveware & koozies!
While I was at it, I also freshened up the kitchen with things I already had.
I had some different plates in this 2 tier rack. I put those on the mini bar and used some of my china salad plates.
I filled a tall glass cylinder with shells and put one of my shell topiaries on top.
Okay, not really a "shop" but I moved a shelf in this cabinet so I could fit all my cookbooks upright.
I cleaned out my pantry! I collected all my glass jars with lids and put them to use for dry goods, etc. I really like the way it is looking. Sorta "Martha"!
So, what did you find when you "shopped" your house???
