Reproduction Bar for Cozy Santa Fe Retreat
Our clients came to us with their plans for a free-standing room for entertaining in their backyard. La Puerta Originals was tasked with creating a Mexican-style bar to fill the back wall of the room. The front has French doors that can be thrown open so that the room feels a part of the backyard, which is planted with trees, flowers and climbing vines.
La Puerta Originals started with these hand-turned antique balcony rails that would become accent legs for the bar.
Then the carving began. Lots of carving. Not just of the cabinet panels, but also little accents here and there.
A hand-rubbed mesquite inspired finish was applied, which was then highlighted with blue accents. Look at those gorgeous cabinet door panels!
While it looks like an antique Mexican bar, it features several modern day conveniences. The hand carved cabinet doors conceal an ice maker and refrigerated drawers, and there is a cast bronze sink in the top.
Finished and installed with a Mexican tile background, the bar is gorgeous and festive, ready for a celebration, or just margaritas for two, while lounging in the backyard.
