DIY Antique Wine Bar

Here’s a fun and simple DIY idea for those awkward antiques that you don’t know what to do with – add some cork handles, slap on some chalkboard paint and create your very own antique wine bar! Don’t you just love new uses for old furniture?

Antique Wine Bar,

It seemed like a  crime to paint a perfectly good antique so we decided to forgo the refinishing for a less intense/expensive furniture flip. Here’s a reminder of what it looked like before.

Antique Wine Bar,

Not very different from the after is it? However I must say that the chalkboard really does update this piece of furniture without distracting from its’ antique charm.

And the cork handles for a wine bar are so apropos, no?


Thanks to my cork hoarding antics, generous neighbors and good friends at Plaid – this project was entirely free. Now we finally have a wine bar worthy of weekly Wine Wednesdays! Who is coming?

Craft On.
