It was a bar that someone had crafted from a basic cabinet. I didn’t need a bar, but I needed a cabinet to house my jewelry, makeup, etc and it was only $45….so, I bought it, sanded it, and painted it.
The doors of the cabinet had at one time been fitted with circular holders – probably meant for glasses. And, the top had been made to pop up and a faux marble shelf was built into the top section – probably meant for making drinks.
When you raise the top up, there is a mirrored sign that reads “Ollie’s Saloon.” My original thought was to take that sign out and completely paint the inside white, but as I was sanding the piece, I changed my mind.
(This is where I get crazily attached to material things.)
Eventually I want to sand and paint around the "Ollie’s Saloon" sign. I also want to fit in a fabric lined shelf over the faux marble one.
The glass holders that were built into the doors.
The inside was painted white and I am using the former glass holders to hold hair accessories and large necklaces.
The handles that I am not crazy about...they're ok, I just think I would like two in a darker color.

The faux marble shelf that will eventually be changed to a fabric lined shelf. I mentioned to my husband that I could make a padded shelf and then this would one day make a fantastic changing table for a baby....he ignored me!
