How can something rusty look so chic? So many people stop to do a double take on this beauty! It really is a fun piece to have around.
Here is another version. A frame with some cleaned up lathe and plaster leftovers from our renos. I decided to just leave the frame nice and chippy for a fun old feel.
Another view of the original bar. I put together some random barnboards and leftover scraps and added the rake and a fruit flat cut in half for the top and bottom shelves. An old wagon wheel made the perfect chiller for the bottle of wine. We just put a plastic bag inside with some ice and water and it was great!
I added a little shelf to the framed bar with some old L brackets. Where else was I going to put the most important thing? The OPENER! :)
If a stand alone bar is what is preferred, this was attached to an old ladder which was also attached to a an old workhorse. It was perfect to display the bar at a show I did!

I've done many different variations of this over the last few years, but these two are great to get you started on your own little masterpiece. We're about to make another one to put out by the pool, but of course, will have to take some more finessing to make sure the glass absolutely can not be blown off by the wind onto our pool patio. They make for quick access to a few glasses when just a couple gal pals pop over for a glass of wine and chit chat. Of course, the chit chat typically starts off with conversation about the piece displaying their wine! Have fun with it!
