A hidden liquor cabinet IKEA Bar hides and glasses and provides a full service bar that is out of sight. When not in use, this looks just like a picture hanging on the wall, but in reality, is hidden between two wall studs to provide a depth of 4 inches (10 cm) for storage. The frame is hinged at the bottom so that when it is pulled down, the back of the image forms a small table for serving and mixing drinks. This project is for a liquor cabinet IKEA 28 3/4 by 17 1/4 inches (73 by 44 cm) and will take approximately one day to finish it.
