THE LUXE MINI BAR ARMOIRE
Don’t be afraid to channel your inner rockstar with the Luxe Mini Bar Armoire. Let me show you how easy it is to put a luxurious, mini bar in your very own bedroom and how you can reuse you that old armoire at the same time.
Honestly one of my favorite things about going on vacation is booking one of those super luxurious hotel room. You know the kind, with an ultra plush bed layered high with 400 thread count sheets, a fantastic bathroom full of fancy spa themed toiletries, and of course an off the chain mini bar. This is what inspired the Luxe Mini Bar Armoire for our bedroom.
Now everyone knows the mini bar is a complete and total rip off, reserved for late night snack cravings or hangover cures. I mean come on, $12.00 for a bag of pretzels and $10.00 for Sprite, that is not the way to spend your hard earned cash on vacation. However, we have all done it, we have open up the illicit mini bar just to peer inside at all it’s tasty contents, only to slam it shut and think, oh my why did I even have to look. Well I personally believe in living a resort lifestyle every day, so just being in your own home feels like a non stop vacation. In fact I love my house so much, the hubby has to take me to some pretty special places to even get me out of it.I decided to adapted our old, antique Armoire into a bedroom mini bar. Over the years, the armoire has lost its purpose and usefulness. We no longer use it to hide away a big boxy television, and all our clothes go into our monstrously huge closet spaces.So what would we ever use it for? Then it hit me, I know we will buy a mini fridge and put it inside to create a mini bar in our master bedroom…..GENIUS!!! So that is exactly what we did, and now we live like vacationing rock stars in our daily lives.As you can see we purchased a mini refrigerator, you can pick one up for about a $130 at most local retailers, Igloo 3.2 cu. ft. Refrigerator and Freezer, Platinum. I personally liked the ones that had a small freezer, so you can have ice for drinks, or store some ice cream snack bars.
DIY TIP: If your armoire does not already have cable holes in the back you may have to drill one out for the plug to pass through.

Then we added clear stackable acetate closet shelves bins for snack storage. There are lots of options for water bottles, snacks trays and wine bottles so you create the best fit for your armoire space. Check out a few of our favorites:
MY BEAUTY SECRET: I also like to utilize the refrigerator to store some of my beauty products. For example, fresh face masks, jade face rollers and cooling eye gels feel so good when they are applied cold straight from the refrigerator, and it also really helps with eye puffiness too. It is also handy for prescription medications too, like insulin or other refrigerator based injectables.
Having a fridge near by will also save yourself the trip down stairs for that late night snack of cookies and milk, or whatever it you are craving, or you can just hide all the really good snacks from the kids, either way it’s a win win.This is also great if you have medications that need refrigeration, or if you suffer from low blood sugar and require a quick boost of energy in the early morning hours. You can also use idea for a guest suite as well, however your guests may decided they never want to leave, so beware.
