record cabinet bar remake


This little beauty started out as a record cabinet.  To transform it into a bar, we first removed the door and the back panel.  We covered the back panel with decorative paper whose atomic era print is reminiscent of Mid-Century Modern desgin, which we both love.  We then removed a few of the shelves and decided to silver-leaf the remaining two.  Four LED light strips (we used Dioder from IKEA) are now tucked away on the sides to give the piece a little atmosphere of its own.  Who wouldn't want to come home, flip the light switch in your liquor cabinet and make yourself a yummy cocktail?  Even better if you're going to plop down and watch a few old episodes of Mad Men!  Can't think of a better way to spend a mid-week winter evening.
