Use an Antique Secretary as a Bar

Use an Antique Secretary as a Bar

My parents brought up another antique piece of furniture to our home when they visited last weekend. This time is was an antique secretary that had belonged to my dad’s first cousin once removed, Florence. I originally figured we would put it upstairs in one of the bedrooms, but as Mike and my dad unloaded it from my dad’s truck, it struck me that we could use an antique secretary as a bar.

And boy am I glad I thought of it, because this antique secretary looks great as a bar!

How to Use An Antique Secretary As A Bar

How to Get the Look

We put my collection of Eber’s Works in the secretary as well. Georg Eber was an Egyptologist, and if you didn’t know, I had grand aspirations of being an archeologist/anthropologist when I was younger, so the collection is quite fitting. The spines of the books are in rough shape, but I think they still look nice, especially considering they are from the 1890’s.

Next, making an antique secretary a bar isn’t complete without liquor decanters! We started collecting decanters to display our whiskeys and bourbons in and have continued acquiring them.  And surprisingly, a decent crystal decanter doesn’t have to break the bank. Amazon has the one below with the bourbon tag on it, here. A couple decanters and the secretary really starts to look like a bar.

Crystal decanters

Having multiple decanters, you’ll want to be able to keep them straight. This is especially true of whiskeys, ryes, and bourbon, or gin and vodka. Basically liquors that are the same color. Adding liquor tags to your decanters solves the problem while looking very classy. I have these liquor tags, but there are a ton out there. They also make a pretty cool gift for the person who has everything. (It’s never too early to start your Christmas shopping!)

What else is in our bar?

Mike and I are always looking for different things to do together. We made this little bottle of gin together. No, we don’t have a distillery in our basement. It’s basically starting with vodka and adding in spices to achieve your desired gin flavor. The kits are inexpensive and really easy to do, get yours here.

Add in some rocks glasses and copper mules to the secretary, and the bar is complete!

  15. In the great scheme of things you’ll secure a B- with regard to effort and hard work. Where exactly you misplaced everybody was on your details. As people say, the devil is in the details… And that could not be more accurate right here. Having said that, permit me tell you what exactly did give good results. Your article (parts of it) is actually very persuasive which is probably the reason why I am making the effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, while I can certainly see a jumps in reason you make, I am not confident of how you seem to unite the ideas that make the actual final result. For right now I will, no doubt yield to your point but hope in the foreseeable future you actually connect your facts much better.

Для чего нужны попперсы начинающим? Не смотря на то, что нет каких либо противопоказаний к использованию попперсов с алкоголем мы всё же не рекомендуем злоупотреблять алкоголем в сочетании с попперсами. Притом использование алкоголя ослабляет эффект попперсов.
