If you have been reading my recent posts, you know that I recently threw a Mad Hatter anniversary party for some friends of mine…and these kinds of parties aren’t all that unusual at my house.
Which is why when I first moved into my house, I bought a fold-out bar. It wasn’t very expensive (mad of particleboard) and isn’t very stylish but is really functional! It has lots of space for storing bottles, glasses and an ice bucket. And it provides a large serving area when it is open.
And it folds up into a fairly small space when it’s not being used. As you can see, it has been a well-used piece of furniture…so I finally decided to give it a face lift.
I have always wanted a Hollywood Regency style bar* like this one from onekingslane.com but didn’t want to spend this much money…and I already had a functional bar cabinet. So I decided to do a DIY version with black lacquer and gold leaf (my first time ever doing gold leaf!), and it turned out to be much easier than I thought!
Read on to see my DIY Hollywood Regency Bar Cabinet Makeover.
