Vintage Drinks Trolley Because We’re Fancy

1 Aug

Since seeing Emma Jane‘s beautiful drinks trolley, I started looking out for one. It’s very Mad Men, no? And the perfect excuse to invest in expensive alcohol, like Jorgensen’s Gin or Vodka.

Every now and then I’d spot on at Vamp or Mint, but every time they weren’t 100% perfect. I’d agonise over whether to feed my impatience and just buy the one that wasn’t quite what I was looking for, but eventually, thanks to the lovely Miss Moss, I found one that was perfect! It’s very similar to Emma’s, but I thought it was okay since we live in different cities. And she said it’s okay so long as it’s stocked up for when she visits!

This one came from a guy in Jo’burg, so the in-laws picked it up last time they were there, and brought it down to Cape Town when they visited us last week. Now, for some bizarre reason, the previous owner has painted the shelves black. PITCH bloody black. Like a drinks trolley for brothels. It was vile, and we got working on stripping the paint right there in our dining room. It was a quick, easy job, and after removing the black paint and cleaning the glass we assembled it, added the booze, and voila!

We need to get some fancier liquor. I mean, Gordon’s Gin is simply not going to cut it for this pretty drinks trolley. But other than that, I am pleased as punch!
