An old washstand and tons of vintage milk caps turn my dining room into a cocktail lounge. Doesnt get better than that!
Milk caps from all over the U.S. become an art installation under the glass top.
1960s Simple Simon and the Pieman stirrer from Howard Johnsons cocktail lounge.
Vintage coasters.
>>>UNDER CONSTRUCTION<<<
The top was built with pine boards and then painted and distressed.
One great find...1,000+ vintage milk bottle caps.
Early Times Whiskey matchbook. Arent those little whiskey bottle matches cool.
Two blue seltzer bottles stand ready for spritzing behind an old tin of Planters Cocktail Peanuts.
Painted and distressed.
Cheers...!

30 years ago I found over 1,000 vintage milk bottle caps. A few weeks ago I finally figured out what to do with them...! Repurpose an old washstand and turn my dining room into a cocktail lounge.
