I found a portable bar at a garage sale a few years ago. It had the original material peeled off, and was covered in those stickers from the gumball machines..... It was a mess. The inside was nice though, and it had most of its accessories. So I bought it for $2! YAY.

I finally had inspiration strike, and although it is kinda plain, I think it has the look I am going for. I am considering a front embellishment, but I am not sure.... Anyway, here it is!!::

Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

I have never seen a portable bar either, but you managed to pimp yours out! It looks very suave!  I laughed at the before pictures, they're funny to me. Anyways that is soo cool. I love it!

Thanks for the comments! Smiley I always had to wonder at who could have put those stickers on there. (They must have been drunk!) I am so glad I rescued the bar from the alien Metallica fans! Smiley

Exactly what I am wondering. "What person, of legal drinking age, bought a bunch of machine stickers, and put them on their bar?"

I recently found my own portable bar and am now inspired to 'swankify' mine, too! Thanks for posting your fab results!

Wow. I had no idea what a portable bar was until now. No idea. But I love it. And swanky is the perfect discriptive word. Awesome.
