The Start Of A New Project

The other day I wrote about how we wanted to make a mini bar area in our home.  I showed pictures of other people’s re-purposed bar areas that we loved.  But, after much discussion we decided we liked the look of a closed cabinet for this kind of thing a little better.  With all of my inspiration in hand, I set out to plan my own mini bar project.  Yes, we found the perfect (we hope!) cabinet for the job!  A Craigslist post led us to the Maple TV Cabinet.

I see much potential in the armoire!  (We don’t actually pick it up until Thursday.) I plan on first painting it a high gloss black.  The back inside of the cabinet with be lined with mirror and wine and stemware racks will be hung from the inside.  The inside has one shelf, but we are guessing we will make a few new shelves from glass.  I am going for a bit of Hollywood regency here.  Overall, we think this beauty should have plenty of space for our entertainment needs!

We do have one small question, however.  I think there needs to be a flat space large enough to mix the actual drinks incorporated into the cabinet somehow.  I was wondering if the drawer could be used for that.  It might be a bit too low to be comfortable, though.  I was also wondering about making a sort of pull-out shelf inside the cabinet.  Is this even possible?  When I see the cabinet in person I will know if more space is necessary.  Until then, does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

We are very excited to get the project rolling, so stay tuned for updates!
