I realize that I’m starting to mention my wedding/planning a lot more often in my posts, but I will blame it on the fact that it had a lot of DIY’s and was the last party that I planned. That, and I’m also pretty proud some of the things we made! So you’ll probably see a few more of these kind of things pop up now and then.
First up is this dresser that we turned into a bar! I should also mention that we had a very small wedding…. as in 20 guests small. So this DIY bar was the perfect size for it.
I found 4 plastic shoe box size bins at Home Depot that fit perfectly in the top drawer. We filled them with ice and had individual bottles in there. My dad made a little support stand to put under the open drawer to give it some stability when it was filled up – thanks dad!
The mirror for this particular dresser had broke a while ago, so instead we strung random photos of us across it. You know, incase people hadn’t had enough “everything is about us! look at us!” moments for the day : P But if you’re using a dresser that has a mirror it would be cute to write something across it, like first dance song lyrics, favourite quote, or something like that.
I topped the dresser with lace and glasses for all the guests, along with gold sharpies and a sign encouraging people to write their names on their glass. Turns out Sharpies aren’t permanent on glass so it all washed off fine afterwards!
Lastly, I found those galvanized buckets at Dollarama for $2 each and bought a bunch before I knew what exactly I was going to do with them. I figured they would be used somewhere in the wedding, and they found their place here filled with ice and champagne!
And there you have it… our DIY wedding bar!
