Here you go:
I think that would be a great idea. You can remove the top and keep some of the drawers. I would turn a portion of drawer space into an area to hang wine glasses. Then you can better define it as a bar. If you do a coffee bar, you can use cup hooks for mugs. Maybe replace drawers with baskets or reface the drawers with grapes or vinyl of wine & champagne glasses.
Hi! maybe this will help
Here is a great video for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-DCK4tXKRk
Dresser heights are typically 6” lower than counter height, the top will need to be made water & stain resistant and as noted above - the drawers can be modified and it removed for functionality.
It all depends on the size of the dresser. If it is too low, then the top can be raised or extensions added to bottom. The wood from the drawers can be used to keep similar wood on the project. Painting will cover any seams and grain changes - assuming a good sanding job.
Turn an Old Dresser into a Home Bar
Hi Mar: You might want to put a piece of plexiglass (with little rubber feet at the corners to keep it from sliding and to let air circulate) on top of the dresser to keep it from scratching and make it easy to clean. You don't say if it's a flat top or if it has a top to it. If it's too low for you to use, you can make a frame out of 6 x 6 lumber (or however high you want it) and paint it to match the dresser. The drawers will be perfect for storing the cloths, coasters and openers and whatever else you need to have handy. If you're feeling rather creative, you can make a dry sink:) Here's a site that may help with that:
