You know . . . let's have some fun around here. Or at least an afternoon of cocktails. You will recognize our little jaunty yellow lacquer bar cart from our partnership with Landon at The Gilded Stag - used in our recent room at the 2013 Peninsula Volunteers Inc Showcase House. Well . . . as marvelous as it looked in our showcase room - there's not really any room for it here in the SMWD offices . . . so . . . we decided to just have a little contest and give it away!
Okay. Let's kinda slog through some of the details . . .
Here are the specifications on the custom piece from The Gilded Stag - it measures 42 inches wide and 40 inches tall - with a depth of 20 inches. It has bright chrome casters and a chrome handle on one side. We designed it with a mixture of 2 mirrored and 1 glass shelf . . . which can be placed in any order on the piece (yes, though the original specs called for 2 glass and one mirrored shelf - we updated it while it was in production!). It's a mixture of classical lines with a bit of chinoiserie - all wrapped in a bright lacquered yellow finish!
And our little bar has already had a very interesting life . . . beginning when it was custom made in Arkansas - followed by its flight to California for our showcase house. So it's got all its travel papers - as well as its original crate used for shipping.
So . . . here are the details of how to enter the contest. Please send in (via email to BarCartContest@SMWDesign.com) your favourite summer cocktail recipe! And if you're feeling especially jaunty - send in a picture of yourself with your cocktail! As usual . . . we'll be posting images and recipes here on the blog for the next few weeks. Deadline for entries will be on Sunday June 23 at noon (here on the west coast).
Then . . . we'll have a random drawing from all the entries . . . and "the winner" will be announced on Monday June 24th. The winning entry will be responsible for the freight charges to have the cart delivered to you locally.
Good luck - and let's get those cocktail recipes and pictures in for the contest - I can't wait to see what y'all are drinking this summer!
