I Think I’m Happy With the Bar Area!

No Comments |  Posted by |  Category:Home Decor, Styling

This little bar area in the apartment started out as function rather than form. Behind those canvas panels are boxes and boxes of various wires and other computer things for Brian. The shelves itself is a fairly utility-looking number from Ikea that I picked up off of Craigslist for $20 a few years ago. After “slipcovering” the shelves I figured I’d better jump on the bar cart bandwagon to pretty it up. I added the print last year (West Elm), and the whole thing looked okay, but I knew it could look better. I found this lamp at a local store, The Standard, last week, and it is just what was needed! Now, in a perfect world I would hang the print, but I tried that before, and it came crashing down, and as a result the glass cracked and we spent a good chunk of change getting the frame fixed. I’m just a little shy to hang this piece again.
