We wouldn't mind seeing this chippendale-bar-turned-landing-strip upon our return home, or before we embark on our day. Seattle's Antika provided the bar, while refinishing in bright orange paint provides the mood lift.
The interior architecture of the piece makes for interesting entryway storage — notably, the door shelves that once held bar glasses repurposed as a mail sorter. The best part is that the whole thing can be closed up to shield all the bits and bobs from view.
