Apartment Sweet Apartment- Wine Bar

I moved into my apartment about 6.5 months ago and I'm still figuring stuff out. I've been too busy with my social life and going away on weekends to really have had the time to make my apartment my own. I have all the basic stuff and I'm content.

I have this space:

Originally, I wanted to place a cocktail/high top table here. I had the hardest time finding one and the one I did find was super dark and black wood and was $1000 for the table, plus chairs. I didn't really like it to begin with, never mind $1000+ like it. 

Right now, I have the table from my patio in the space.

But, I think this would be the perfect piece:

It's from Bed Bath & Beyond and I've been eying it since December. I love it. It's a wine bar- it will hold bottles of wine, as well as wine glasses. From the picture you can see that it also has shelves, cupboards and a drawer, so lots of storage. The top also expands and it has a cutting board. 

I think it would be the perfect addition to my apartment plus I can store all of my 'bar' stuff their instead of in a cupboard in my kitchen.

I just can't justify buying this. It's something I love and I think would look good in my apartment. It's hands down something I want but by no means something I need.

Sometimes you just need to throw caution to the wind and buy something you don't really need...right???


  1. I really want one of those also. UGH!

  2. I usually try to wait a little while before buying something to see if it's REALLY what I want. If you've been dying to have that thing since December, I'd highly consider the purchase. I'm not big on splurging too often, but I also believe that sometimes you have to give in. It'll give you a homey feel, you'll be so happy with it and it's a great entertaining piece! :)

  3. I love it, I think it would be perfect in that space. And furniture with storage is so important!

  4. My ex got that wine bar thing. I built it for him. What a task that was. It was pretty good to have in the apt.
