A well-styled home bar is a basic must-have in well turned-out living rooms, so maybe I shouldn’t admit we don’t have one. My husband really, really wants one. I’ve been thinking about repurposing the built-in that was once the TV cabinet into a fully-stocked booze serving station. It would make a great Chanukah present if I could get around to it next week. Not. Maybe for his birthday in March.
I have bars on the brain for two reasons: One, tomorrow we’re having friends over for the first nigh of Chanukah. While Champagne will likely be the drink of choice, it still feels like we should have a bar if we’re entertaining. Two, earlier this week LampsPlus asked me if I’d like to stay on as a regular guest blogger. I said yes. I love the challenge and fun of sourcing items from within a single site. Today they published my third guest post, Decorative Mirrors to Dress Up a Bar. With all our extra art, a bar area in my house would surely have a painting anchoring the space. The ones here use mirrors.
