Behold! The Barmoire!

I was over at Stephanie's a while back, looking through one of her house decorating magazines. In it, there was this nifty article about refurbishing an old piece of furniture into something new. One idea they had was to take an old armoire and turn it into a bar.

I loved it. Todd loved it.

I was thinking we could go to Goodwill, or surf craigslist and find a cheap armoire and convert it. But then my fantabulous husband remembered that we had an armoire in storage. It used to be in our movie room, and housed all of the electronic stuff.

So when we cleaned out the storage units a couple of weeks ago, we brought the armoire inside. And yesterday, we used up some newly found gift cards to buy a couple of wine racks and stemware holders.

And behold!

The Barmoire.

By putting all of our stemware, alcohol, and paraphernalia in here, we opened up two kitchen cabinet shelves and a huge space in the pantry.

Slowly, but surely, we are getting some elbow room in this house. I love it!

Slowly, but surly? Surely you jest!

Ah, thanks for catching that. Apparently I was very surly. But now I'm just surely :-)
