Establishing Your Home Bar

Ahhh, feels good to be typing in this white space again. I've missed it here, taking a blogging break is a nice relief but damn you miss everyone. I wish I had ten million gazillion things to share with you, but I really just want to share the start of our bar. I have a long wish list in my Amazon of what I really want for this bar, but this is what we have set up for now. I think my favorite part is the "I drink wine because I don't like to keep things bottled up" sign. Snagged it so hard from Home Goods the other night!

Next up will be a wine rack to hold the bottles and some wine glasses. Above the rack is where that sign will go. After that will be a mirror tray and a whiskey set. Then the final major thing will be an actual "bar cart" instead of this old ikea shelf. And then of course, more booze. The boyfriend loves Woodford Reserve, so we'll be adding that for sure, and I'm not sure what else since I don't particularly have a favorite alcohol.

Here are some links to help you start your bar:

1) copper tray - Target $9.99
2) blue tint glasses - Target $9.99 (similar here) can't find them on the Target website anywhere, but they're a set of 4, Telford Tumbler Set 12oz glasses.
3) "I drink wine because..." sign - Home Goods $24.99 (no link, in store only)
4) wine rack - Amazon $35
5) mirror tray - Amazon $23
6) whiskey set - Amazon $32

And on a side note, if you take a look, you might see things have slightly changed around here. Same color scheme, but a much cleaner look. I felt like my blog was yelling at me every time I opened it, it was so ... big and loud!

On a more important side note, THANK YOU all for your super sweet comments you've been leaving on the last few posts. I've read and smiled at every single one, I just need a little more time climbing back into this thing to catch up on replying. But I wanted to let you know that when I'm sad, your comments help lift my spirits and when I'm excited about something, your joy for me makes my heart smile. I love blogland and I love you.

  1. That board is just amazing, I need that for my house!

  2. I should do this for Tyson, I know he wants a home bar but we've always lacked space.

  3. I've been really wanting a dedicated bar area - I think it'll be my spring project! Love that sign :)

  4. omg this looks awesome. i want one

  5. pretty design! we have a little bar area but I want a big fancy gold bar cart one day.

  6. I can't freaking keep liquor/wine around my house long enough to start a bar cart. It's an issue, really.

  7. What a cute little bar area! If I had a bigger place I'd totally steal some inspiration. One day :)

  8. The bar cart came out great. Mine tends to go above my fridge along with my protein powder. Weird combo I know so I should make a prettier spot. Love the new design too.

  9. What a cute bar!! I love it!

  10. yay i'm glad you're back!!
    my husband also loves woodford. on it's own, it's gross but he adds maraschino cherries and something else and when he does that, it's actually pretty good.

  11. I really need to do this! It's so adorable!

  12. That's cute. But it also makes me a little embarrassed at how much booze is stored in our bar area.

  13. Are you gonna start designing for people or what, lol? You do great at redoing your own! Love the colors!! :)

    Super glad you're back, and we definitely need to start a bar area at our house. it's just all on top of the fridge...

  14. I like the changes you made and I'm glad you're back! :)

  15. I love that sign and I definitely have to 100% agree with it! I can't wait till I have some space to set up sweet little spots like this! :-)

  16. Looks great! I need to organize all of our bar stuff into one spot like this.

  17. Love looking at this! The condo my fiancee and I are buying has a really nice large wet bar area (with a door and everything!) so I will definitely need decorating/organizing help with it!

  18. Love a bar cart! For me, deciding which alcohol to stock has been the hardest part! Love the accessories you've chosen, though.

  19. So cute, I love how you have Fireball!

  20. Make sure the themes available include an easy to see lead generation or
    opt-in form on the home page. If you are an individual website owner and
    want to check your site positions for a couple of keywords in a single search
    engine that can easily be done by hand. At the start when the buyer doesn't know
    what to buy, he will usually enter a generic term such as
    digital camera for example.
