cute lil bar

my mom and i found this old bamboo side table at a yard sale for $5 last summer. it was wood, originally, and i primed it then spray painted it pink. to totally set it off, i bought some cute paper at "paper source" and modge-podged it onto the top. i love the way it turned out!

 i decided i wanted to make a cute little bar in my dining room with the table, but i don't really drink liquor (other than tequila - bring on the margaritas!), so i was thinking i would have to go out and buy liquor just so my "bar" could be cute. not so, my friends. true to my mother's way of thinking, i decided to rummage through recycling bins in my 'hood until i found a few cute liquor bottles to put on the bar. cleaned 'em and filled 'em with water and now they're cute as can be! a few moments of embarrassment while looking like a homeless person saved me a pretty penny.

the before:
after! (i made those little flag garlands, too!) i really love it, if i do say so myself.
