Old Dresser Turned Portable Bar

Bliss Ranch: Dresser Bar

Time for Part Dos of the dresser redo.  Also known as the project that almost drove Bliss over the edge.  (See the whole sordid affair of the dresser's before in Part Uno).  There will also be a Part Tres featuring the back side, some details, and night scenes so I can show you the awesome crackled glass globes with lit candles inside - my favorite part.


What we did......
Brawn and I took a FREE dresser off the hands of some folks at a garage sale and turned it into an outdoor portable bar.  When we have folks over we are constantly running in and out of the house to get beverages or mix them even if it's just non alcoholic fruity blender drinks.  It made sense to bring a beverage station to the patio.  The veneer was peeled off in the bad spots, sanded, the whole thing was painted a God awful pink-purple color - that I had to fix.  I rubbed Ebony stain over the entire dresser which gave it a nice rich color, then two coats of marine varnish.  It wasn't that I had a thing for purple/pink, I was trying to match the decking of our spa boards, a deep mahogany.  I succeeded. I also succeeded in not spending money to complete it.  The only thing we didn't have in the garage was the purple/pink paint.  Imagine that.  We do now.

 What you thought was going to be a giant bird house, 
was actually a wood insert in the drawer to fit up to 2 liter soda bottles.  

I have the bar set up for Fiesta in these photos - margaritas, chips and salsa with a side of Corona, and a few novelty sodas, but it will also be used for ice tea, and I have some of those big bottles of coffee flavorings so it can easily be set up as a coffee bar when the weather cools.

Bliss Ranch: Dresser Bar

 This is the stainless steel ice trough from the before photos, and was the reason Brawn had to cut into that top.  Perfect size to cool whatever beverages we need for a night of entertaining without running back and forth into the house.  It can chill wine, beer, or just some Coca-Cola.  It also fits in the drawer and the top has a piece of wood that fits over it for serving foods or setting jugs of lemonade.


Both sides of the dresser have different words.  More times than not the bar will probably be used for sodas and non alcoholic drinks so I didn't want to use hard core booze words.  Words like booze.  There is enough kids around here I should of put *whine* on it.


 I sanded and distressed the sides for a vintage feel.

I left the drawers and both tops of the dresser natural 
since Brawn was so sweet to peel off the veneer.
















 I cut a slit in a cork to use as a recipe clip.  The door frame has a mesh grid to hang all those unique summer beverage recipes that I've been pinning and would like to sample. 



The door on the left has old supplies I had in a drawer for using outside.  The "holders" are left over belt pieces from my son's Rock n Roll dresser (that was also a freebie).

I have wanted to make a banner for a while now.  I picked up some leather samples in earthy colors at a garage sale so practiced by making this mini banner.  The letters are powder glitter.  
When we are outside on the patio or by the pool what do we want to do?   
R E L A X.


One of my BFF's, my garage sale buddy and the only friend I told about this blog, (hi Dii) thinks I have an addiction to glassware.  I'm drawn to it at garage sales or thrift stores, and I don't need anymore of it!  I think I have every size wine glass made, but the ones in the picture are just typical Target brand.  The martini glasses are antiques and I love them.  I got them at a sale a few years ago and still kick myself because I didn't buy the old set of 6 seltzer bottles.  What was I thinking!  The margarita glasses also came from a garage sale and I have three colors of them; clear, a light green and a pink sort of like pink depression glass.  I also have a nice set of plastic ones for serving slushies to kids.

  19. Amazing, incredible, clever, stunning, did I say INCREDIBLE - and that's not just describing the new drinks bar, it also describes you and Brawn !
    I kind of thought it was something to do with drink, but I had some crazy idea that drink was going to go into the globes and they would sit in the holes Brawn cut out - lol !!
    Anyway, I absolutely love it Bliss, and I love the lettering with the different fonts, I really need me some alphabet stickers !

    ReplyDelete
  20. This is so cool I absolutely love it!!! I am looking for a piece of furniture for my dining room and I love this!! I found you on It's Overflowing I would love it if you would link up to my linky party going on now!

  21. I am so making your rita's today. What an amazing transformation. I would expect nothing less from you though!! Gonna use this in my monthly wow's ! I am beyond speechless maybe cause I am dreaming about drinking one of your cocktails right now!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I've just read the previous post again where it describes the 'globe candles' - oops, I won't be getting a gold star for paying attention will I !!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. You had me at margarita! This bar is just the ticket for never having to go inside! I'm relaxed just looking at it (can you imagine how relaxed I'd feel after one of your cocktails)?!

    I'm an old glass lover too - now you need to make it your mission to find some old seltzer bottles.

    Your margarita recipe sounds amazing but if you want to skip the simple syrup and measuring just do what I do:
    2 pours tequila
    1 pour contreau
    squeeze of agave nectar
    juice of half a lime
    Shake in cocktail mixer filled with ice
    Pour into rock salt rimmed ice filled glass
    Relax!

    Pinning this ...
    and can't wait to see your backside!

  26. Woo hoo! I was right! I had a feeling this is what you were doing, but couldn't have imagined how awesome it would have turned out. My favorite thing are all of the little details - it makes it stand out from the others you see on Pinterest. My plans to do one are null and void - can't top this one :)

  34. Wow. So funky, so cool down every last detail! Amazing. Love all the words on the side and the "RELAX" banner! I just wish it was a traveling bar!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Absolute perfection! Girl, you really thought of everything. It's just awesome! I have a glassware/stemware addiction too so don't feel bad. I honestly do not have room for any new pieces so that's the only thing that keeps me from buying more.

    I'll take a margarita now, on the rocks with salt and I'll 'relax' along with you!

  103. This is fantastic! Did you do anything special to seal it so that it can be kept outdoors, or do you bring it inside when you're not having a fiesta?

    1. Thank you Stacy. It has two coats of Marine varnish on it, but I still bring it in the garage till it is needed. Another thought was to get a bbq cover for it.
