Turn an Ugly Radiator Into a Bar

DIY a Radiant Cocktail Station

If you read my five ideas for creating a bar at home and you're still stumped as to where to set up a cocktail station in your own digs, look no further than your radiator! Gap's director of concept, Jane Herman, got creative in her home, which was featured on Refinery29, and turned an unsightly radiator into a pretty tabletop and minibar by setting a basic — or homemade — console table over it. (She can't take all the credit though; Jane says she learned this trick in Domino magazine.)

Whether you have an old iron radiator like this one or an electric one, the trick works the same — assuming it's about hip height. I'd just be careful to make sure your tabletop is thick enough; you wouldn't want your precious liquor bottles overheating. Then accessorize as you see fit, with a tray, a lamp, a family photograph, etc!

Have any of you ever created a bar at home?
