So today, I am going to avoid the big awesome elephant in the room. There are still a good amount of edits I have to make to my new digs before I can introduce you properly. I just can't wait for you to officially meet.
In the meantime, why don't you feast your eyes on my newest obsession.
Yes, I feel like I need to wear heels every time I use this.
Yes, It looks like we are ragers, but I promise we have had the majority of these bottles for a long long time.
Now, let me fill you in on this little slice of heaven, that cost me $20 to make!
The first important thing to note is that this puppy was found at the sketchiest thrift-store/flea market/80 year old man's home ever. He is a Denver staple. He lives in (I'm pretty sure) and owns a large green store front on downtown Tennyson street. I am pretty sure the store is called "Furniture." Yea.
Anyways, I was inspired to do a walk through a couple weekends ago, and am so glad that I did.
This puppy was sitting there for $20, and I asked him if I could take it for $15, and voila! After a long talk of the Italian and Russian mobs, spam (the meat, not the emails), and the crime that McDonalds has committed by providing iced tea but not the ever-American lemonade.
But I digress...
I brought this piece of junk home.
Then I put some of this awesome Rustoleum metallic spray paint to work. I also had to do some recon on the glass, as it was in pretty bad shape. But nothing a little Goo Gone, Windex, and elbow grease can't fix.
Can you believe that Goo Gone has their own website? They must be doing pretty well for themselves.
I was too scared to google "elbow grease" so I just left that one alone.
But I digress... Again...
And after all that elbow grease… Here he is. All shiny and new.
From there, it was all pretty much the fun part… stock the bar. AKA move all of the bar items from the closets and kitchen hutch and put them in their new classy digs.
This project was so much fun, because it was super quick, and added exactly the touch I need to ALMOST finish up the back, closed-in porch. OOO now your interest is peaked, eh? Some time soon, my friends. Some time soon.
