We aren't big drinkers in my household, but it's nice to have a little something around for guests. Which means our liquor cabinet needs aren't much: No glass and mirrored giant in the corner of the living room. That's why I'm taken with these nifty DIY ideas. I'd love to create a small liquor cabinet (that doesn't necessarily look like one) with nothing but elbow grease and little to none of the green stuff.1: This just-right-for-bottles shelving was made inside an old ironing board niche.
2: An old suitcase hanging on the wall (complete with tags) has been transformed into a small liquor cabinet.
3: A vintage French grocer's cabinet has been converted into a tall, slim (and space-saving) liquor cabinet in this example.
4: This weathered metal cabinet may look like a nifty table for an entrance hall, but it holds its liquor with the best of them!
5: A barrister bookcase makes a perfect little liquor cabinet.
Where do you stash your liquor? Is it right out in the open, or hidden away in a cupboard or bar cabinet?
