Now… before I start, I want to make it clear that we are not alcoholics.  Not even close.  But, we are often hooked by a good deal.  And when Irvin travels for work, he finds some good deals… at the duty free shop.

For this project, Irvin scoured Pinterest and decided a barristers cabinet would be the perfect piece of furniture to turn into a liquor cabinet.  After a couple months of searching the classifieds, we finally lucked out and scored this beauty through a friend’s connection (thanks Jesse!).  Unfortunately it was a bit too tall, so we took it apart, chopped it in half, and added a few extra pieces here and there.

Barristers Cabinet

We picked out some paint we both liked, gave it a couple of coats and ta-da!
