Shaken Not Stirred

There's no reason to feel like you have to have a custom bar built to house your libations. On the other hand, you don't want to have bottles of alcohol or wine just sitting out on the kitchen counter when there are so many easy and inexpensive ideas for how to create a bar area. Here are some interesting ones:

 How about an old suitcase on a luggage stand?

 Simple and chic.

Floating shelves, strategically placed, are a great idea and a bargain at Ikea or the like.

 Looks like a fireplace at first glance, no? It's actually just a credenza with the doors removed!

Trays are your friend and help to create a grouping that looks like it was purposeful and not so haphazard.

I have been on the hunt for an old library card catalog for years! My thought was to use it for jewelry, but this is even better!

West Elm

This turned into this...

The great thing about acrylic bars is that they allow your glassware and bottles to shine and don't take up much visual space.

I love these! Bar carts are so Mad Men! I really love the old suitcase ideas too and the library cabinet is brilliant :)

Ilove the clever ideas, how do you find them all?. I was using an old military cabinet in the kitchen on top of my dish washer to store odd fry pans and on the top is the card storage area. One was for recipes, and two for spices. shut they block out the moisture that rises up. and I had one missing drawer. Iwas never sure what to do with that odd spot where the drawer is missing other than store the paper products. the wine bottles. Inspiration. I could take out the drawers and use it to store wine. thanks. jo
