antique bar redux

A couple of posts ago, I mentioned the dreaded furniture-makeover-bug that was plaguing me. I finally succumbed to temptation... here's what I've been busy with while I've been neglecting my poor little blog (sorry about that, by the way).

First, I found this cool antique bar at the local Habitat for Humanity store. I was actually, believe it or not, in the market for just such an item. So maybe it was fate....
Combine that with my love for all things dark teal and my intense desire to cover something with tile and you get this little number, which looks right nice if I do say so myself.

I was initially planning to do something cool - plus signs, anyone? - with the tile pattern on top, but decided to pare down. Not sure the urges have been fully satisfied... sometimes you just get a bug! I'm thinking about taking an upholstery class this fall. Oh, the dark teal furniture I could make!!!


  1. Quite cool indeed! I've been bitten by that bug myself. I'm on the hunt for a wood sofa that I can re-do. I'll settle for one of those hideous 70's numbers even. (we had one with velour hunting-motif pillows when I was a kid. yee haw!)

    Love the color you've chosen.

  2. what an awesome makeover! I love the teal

  3. Love it!
    PS I'm thinking teal for the mid mod bee, so you'll be happy. Just waiting for a fabric order to arrive.
