bar inspiration

extremely pumped about my bar. here are some things that told me they want to live on it..


every bar needs a cool tray. this vintage orangey red lacquer serving tray from pip and estella decided right away that she would look awesome on the black and white bar with shiny brass rings..and she is cheap...26 bucks. done.



not sure if this ice bucket will work with the orange tray but i really really love it and he said that he would sit happily underneath until he is needed, quietly. he is only 28 dollars. hmmm...
from katie armour's etsy shop...



every bar needs monogrammed cocktail napkins. the black is chic. from here.




and while i know these aren't technically cocktail glasses, they would be super appropriate for my gin gin mule's come spring. also from katie armour!!



these teak tumblers said they needed to be on the bar to introduce a natural element to the shiny lacquery watery icy golden sparkly mix. they're right..


good for olive pits or lemons and limes...you're coming too black bowldish!


and you look like a healthy vagina...you're DEFINITELY invited. i shall put toothpicks in you.


pitchers for when i make a batch of goodness.. eddie ross is selling this one for 60 bucks. too rich for me but it is lovely.


this one is very charming too and much more affordable for me at 26 dollars. can't you see bright red sangria in it??



and of course a bar isn't really a bar without the pretty booze bottles like st. germain.

grey goose...(for you raina!)


and a nice leaded crystal decanter for wine..

going to get the last bit of priming and sanding done today so tomorrow i can start the painting process!! can't wait to show you..

cocktail and vagina cheers,
jenny

That is so weird, just before coming to visit you I was poking around in Armour's fab etsy shop and bookmarked that golden salmon-bellied seashell. Straaaange! Are you really buying everything or just virtual shopping? BTW, love the tray, teak tumblers, and the snazzy ice bucket. Have you ever been to Queen of Hearts up in Buford? It's an antique mall and they have lots of great bar outfitting goods.

Hee HEEEE - I can't wait to SEEEE! (Totally living vicariously through your projecto!)

A Perfect Gray said...

great mix-ology, girl. teak tumblers, esp.

bluehydrangea said...

Can't wait to see it all together..you need to have a cocktail party to break in the new bar cart. Let me know when so I can plan a trip to Atlanta!

Erika said...

Now that you have secured your hardware - can you reveal your double secret source for that deliciousness? I know your style is gone, but surely there is more to love??

susie q said...

The healthy vagina dish is my favorite! I'll have a boring glass of white wine, thanks.

{ And what on earth does the coded message from Erika mean? }

AppleTree said...

can't wait to see the final reveal! I need a vagina for my bar now so I can be cool.

Richie Designs said...

St. Germain RULES!!!

Paisley said...

great picks! I will expect fully styled out pictures of this finished bar and all of these things on my screen monday morning mmmmmmm'kay...that would be great...

Rachel said...

Excuse me, but where is the tequila?? You can't make margaritas without it! Milagro is a good one...

Your bar cart is coming along swimmingly! Can't wait to see it when it's all done.
And I love the ice bucket with that tray - they can totally go together!

Raina Cox said...

Please tell me you're going to monogram those coasters with letters to spell out rude words.

And YAY! for my lick-her.

aquirkydelight said...

I thought of you while watching 30 Rock last night, because Jack Donaghy's office has a killer bar cart. LOVE that orange/red tray, by the way. Your taste is killer.

Duel Living said...

If that is what a "healthy vagina" looks like...I gotta get myself to the gynie like pronto! Do you think they can gold plate my labia while I'm there?

Domestic Goddess said...

I have nothing nasty to contribute, sadly; I'm just laughing my vaj off at the other guests... getting my daily dose. LOVE the goodies. Expect cock & tails very soon. XO

LindsB said...

When is the cocktail party going to be- I so want in?

The Neo-Traditionalist said...

HAHA---I LOVE IT. My fiance John and I joked about how that conch shell dish, despite is fabulousness, did somewhat resemble a vagina. Perhaps I ought to add that to the item description... Thanks for the shout out! What can I say? You're the best... XO Katie

urbansardines said...

I hope you don't mind if I copy cat and get those napkins. I am so totally in love with them! Also, I might point out that vaginas don't like toothpicks very much... just sayin' :-)

Waiting with baited breath to see your fabulousness at work!!!

Lovely Little Nest said...

Love all of the bar accessories...except perhaps for the vagina :p But all the rest are fab!

Karena said...

I really love the black lacquer bowl!

Anna said...

You know your liquor...or liquor cabinet don't you darling!! All coming together ever so nicely..Im all excited for you and cant wait to see the end results...chin chin!

sherri said...

The tray and ice bucket, hell all of it looks amazing. I think I might just need to drink with you.

Robin said...

Love that ice bucket, I think my Gram had one... wish I knew what happened to it.

The cut crystal decanter is for booze honey, not wine. Fill it with whisky, pronto!

My new fave St. Germaine cocktail:
2 parts gin
1 part St. G
juice of half a lemon (sans pips)
shake over ice, strain into a martini glass
Mmmmmmm.....
Rinse & repeat

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

Love your inspiration! Am especially loving the monogrammed napkins and the glamorous pitcher from mr Ross :D

Hope you've had a fabulous weekend!!

xoxo

Jane said...

I definitely was going to follow just because your followers are called cool motherfuckers but then i started looking around and am loving your blog for more than just that. I'll be back. Love your style.

eddieross said...

For you, honey...40!

Tiina said...

i just can't wait to unpack and put them in action! allthough i filled them up now the whiskey decanter is empty after the weekend's boozings

Kristin said...

My bar, that is now sitting in the garage due to grabby toddler paws, definitely needs monogrammed bev naps. Love!
