Let's Talk Vintage #101: Our Own Flea-Market Flip: Old Sideboard to Chic Wine Bar!

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
We gather here every Tuesday at 9 am
 to share our blog posts about
our vintage finds, DIY home décor,
projects we are working on,
collections we have, and even some
 of the things we sell.
Today I am going to share a
project my hubby worked on.
He turned a small, vintage
sideboard (or is that a buffet?)
into a working wine bar.

It was neat seeing it come together after
he purchased the stemware racks on

... and built the wine bottle
sections to store several
bottles at a time.
I really like it... he used
a paint pen again for the elegant
lines in the cabinet doors.
The brown paint pen over the
black didn't turn out exactly
as we had planned but it
still has a great look to it.
And this piece is so cool but we have no idea who created it. We found it at a town-wide sale last weekend. Just look at the layers of distressing! I have no doubt this one won't last long.

Another cool find is the Pepsi crate.
It is in such great condition! We were thrilled to find it as well at a "by appointment only" house sale. So many people walk into the shop and ask us to come take a look at their vintage items. We are happy to help as they usually also want to get rid of some of it.

And last but not least, I found out I was listed in a collection of other antique blogs ... named one of the Best 47! (Not sure why the number is uneven, but hey, I can't wait to check out all of the other blogs.) I also saw Diana of Adirondack Girl at Heart on there! Congrats Diana!

Now let's see who is featured this week:

Diana of Adirondack Girl at Heart shared her desk makeover with us. I am working on a black desk this week as well and think hers turned out terrific!

and Sharon of Blue Willow House showed us how she decorates with vintage teacups. Some good ideas here, we all see teacups wherever we go hunting... see how she
creatively displays them!

and Amykins Blog shared her new Fall additions around her house. She is a little bit like me, waiting until summer's end to start decorating! Love her enamel bowl.

Hey Jill, it's been awhile since I've been to the party, having been on a cross-country trip in August. It's great to be back, and joining the party with a very vintage tablescape. Thanks for hosting us. Your husband did an excellent job on that wine cabinet conversion. Happy Fall!
