How fun is this?  A travelling wine bar for the gal on the go!
I was especially drawn to this piece because of the houndstooth pattern on it.  
It was originally used for mixed drinks, but I figured why not use it for wine, too!  
On the one side I replaced the glass drink shaker with wine bottles.  And like everything I do, I picked the bottles by how I liked the labels.  Go figure....
I think these small metal glasses are cute and will work just fine when Im on the road.  
I obviously need a bottle opener for the wine, so this bright green one was added to the original pieces.
Ive got all the accessories Ill need, plus a few additional pieces.
There you have it...perfect for a road trip!
And if someone wants something else to drink?  I found this matching thermos for coffee.
Or maybe a cold frosty?  This cooler is new, but is a perfect match to the other two pieces.
Ooops.  Someone thought this was a photo op!  
There ya have it.  Already for another road trip.  Anyone want to join me?

Lately I feel like I'm always on the road.  And when I found this portable bar suitcase, I thought it might be fun to convert it into a travelling wine bar!

JunkArchitect writes: This is great and a much cheaper way to get liquored up while traveling than spending your hard earned money on overpriced hotel cocktails. I like the little metal glasses too. Sometimes it's more fun to drink wine from SOMETHING other than a wine glass.

Salute!
