Seat side:  The front panel was made with a 5 panel door.  The extra section on top is made from the bottoms of 2 5 panel doors
 
bar side: recycled wall mirror, top shelf from a bi-fold door with recovered wood trim.
 
The  ends caps:  I added large spindles I bought at an auction  to give it a heavy feel and look.  I found this wine rack at a second hand store for free in the bone yard.
top.  I used 2 solid core bi-fold doors glued together.  Even the buttons I picked up on an aucition in a dollar box.
The silver bar is the original bars to hang cloths on. I left them on so when the bar wasnt in use she could hang clothing, quilts, bar rags. or do the ballet! LOL

Last year I posted a 4 piece wall divider in a western motif. This customer ordered a Bar this year. Wow was it fun and creative!!! Over past couple years of finding the right pieces to it all together better than expected.  It was a hit with them.  It is one of my most unique pieces. Both orders were created to be able to disassemble when she moves to be closer to her kids. This piece has 4 major pieces and 5 minor pieces. All of it is from repurposed on. I think it was for a western clothing store.. An auction house gave it for free. Left over from previous auction! The rest was lying around the shop's scrap pile, from past auctions, or a flea market find..  I'm looking forward to the next item.
