FROM OLD MAP CABINET TO TV ARMOIRE TO DRINKS CABINET!


We purchased this wonderful cupboard in England. It was originally made to house maps and blue prints. 

Our first use for it was as a TV armoire. It lived in our master bedroom until Hunka Chunka replace the old box tv with a flat screen which was mounted on the wall.  I wanted to use the armoire somewhere in our home and so temporarily moved it to a wall in our living room. There it sat sad and empty....until I had one of my "moments"....:) I thought it would make a charming drinks cabinet!

I covered the hole in the back made for all the tv cords etc by mounting an old framed art piece that had belonged to my mother-in-law. Then I introduced a cute little lamp, and finally an old in-laid tray on which I placed some pretty decanters and glassware. Then I set some of our favorite brandy bottles in the back. 
I have used it several times to serve wine from when my girlfriends come over and I love it. Hope you do too!


Hugs,
Mandy
