Laundry Room/Bar Combo

I got back from visiting my sister yesterday...sorry for the lack of posts!  But I have lots of cute things to show you from her house.  She doesn't have a small house by any means but an older house so as you can imagine storage isn't as great as the newer houses.  She has really found some clever ways to combat that which I can't wait to share with you. 

Today we will start with the adorable bar she created in her laundry room.  This is directly off of the kitchen and living room so the perfect spot when you are entertaining. 

My sister has a great whimsical traditional style.  Behind the green lattice fabric is the washer and dryer as well as a organizer cart.  (Ignore the floors...not totally complete yet!)

Above she has all of her glassware, pitchers and ice buckets stored.

Love the little detail of the dragonfly knobs.

This antique mirror is a nice touch.  When she entertains she lights a candle in front which gives off nice reflections on the glasses and creates great ambiance. 

And to go with the theme a lovely cork wreath created by yours truly one year for Christmas.  I like this symmetrical design I did.

The fabric was hung with a cafe rod along the front of the bar top attached like this.

Nice to see how a boring laundry area could be transformed into a bar so you can get two uses out of one space.  Plus a great way to conceal the washer and dryer.

Tomorrow I will show how to utilize 10 inches of wall space to create a functional bookcase and smart storage in the kitchen.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
