My love for our bar has grown deeper with the additions we made over the last couple months.
Two years ago I inherited several great items from family and friendsÂ to help kick start my first apartment. Â IÂ have now been trying to mix those great pieces with new items – toying with the Â fine balance of modern vs vintage. Â I really like how this space turned out & I hope to master this vintage meets modern balance throughout my home.
See what the bar looked like 6 months ago,Â here.
Tray: Room & BoardÂ Open End Steel TrayÂ | Posters: Etsy PeteKDesign Ace of Spade PrintsÂ |Â Frames: 20x30in Ikea FramesÂ |Â Wine Rack: VintageViewÂ 18 Bottle Metal Hanging Wine RackÂ |Â Rug: One Kings Lane (sold out) | Chairs: inherited from my mothers parents | Breakfast buffet: inherited fromÂ fathers parents | Whiskey Glasses: Schott Zwiesel Tritan Crystal Old Fashioned/Whiskey, Whiskey Decanters: inherited fromÂ my uncle.
Lots of goodies on the bar tray! Â We searched for the right tray for many months- Â a modern design to contrast the wood of the breakfast buffet. I decided on the whiteÂ Room & BoardÂ Open End Steel TrayÂ and it is perfect.
I fell in love with these cute paper straws on Etsy-Â PuppyCatCraftsÂ and purchased the WIN-WARE Boston CocktailÂ cocktail shaker set a few months back andÂ I have to admit I have been slaking on making fancy drinks – but the day is coming soon.
We went back and forth before making a decision on the right whiskey glass for us – between a vintage whiskey set or a clean and basic. Â The basic set won- our bar is already filled with lots of vintage goodies so a classic whiskey glass that you can easily throw in the dishwasher without concern made these,Â Schott Zwiesel Tritan Crystal Old Fashioned/Whiskey, the winner.
This wine rack was an impulsive purchase. Â One minute we decided we wanted some type of wine rack and the next we were atÂ 4th & SwiftÂ for dinner falling in love with their wine display. Shortly after I foundÂ thisÂ copy-cat display on Amazon – pretty sure it is an exact match- they just had several more racks.
Stole these delicate little chairs from my mothers house. They are the prettiest chairs around!
