Upscale Your  Corner Cabinet

how I turned my grandparent’s corner cabinet into a functional bar cabinet.

I’ve forever struggled with what to do with this heirloom corner curio cabinet. It just never seemed to have a purpose…it always seemed to be a bit of an afterthought.

Here is what it looked like all dtripped down and ready to transform.

Choose the Right Cabinet

Selecting the right cabinet is like choosing the perfect cocktail mix...

buffet, china,  short or tall...

it can make or break the result

any kind really!

Vintage, TV, Record, Industrial, or Customizable Shelving Units - there’s a cabinet out there waiting to be transformed.

Add a Splash  of Paint or Wallpaper  to your  Bar Cabinet

A fresh coat of paint or snazzy wallpaper can make it pop.

This was the first time I’ve used the Peel and Stick Wallpaper, and it was really easy and forgiving.


cutting and measuring the grass cloth wallpaper

Cut larger and use an exacto knife to trim for the straightest lines.

My Tips: 

measure carefully

straight lines are your friends

use a scraper

go bit by bit

cut wide and trim

add wine bottle storage

hang glassware

buff the hardware

light it up!
