mid century TV cabinet Bar

This is the empty shell of a once prized mid century flat glass front General Electric TV that we found at a closed TV repair shop.

So we decided to breath life back into this old piece and let it do what it did for years "entertain people", but this time as a bar. 

 We removed the panel that held the knobs and added a wine glass rack. Then we had to add a shelf that would hold the beverages, and covered it with cork.

The front glass was removed and hinges with magnetic push latch for easy access. Then LED lighting was added to the interior to help showcase your private selection. Of course the TV had to have a remote control again, but this time it controls those LED's.

Beautiful serpentine front secretary desk with hand painted image

We found an old secretary desk that did not sell at an estate sale. It was in very bad shape, the sides were all split up and the bottom drawer was shot. Years of the bottom, with no legs,  being on a damp floor had left their marks.

With a vision and a lot of work, we were able to rescue this beautiful piece.


After all the structural repairs, and creating new legs, and finial. The painting and staining were followed with coats of polyurethane to seal up the wood. The drop down desk front has an French image from the Graphic Fairy hand painted on it. 


It is now ready for years of great service, for some lucky family.
