Modernistic Fireplace Opens to Reveal a Small Bar
FOR the small apartment or house where space is at a premium, a combination fireplace and bar may be constructed by anyone who can use a hammer and saw at a cost of approximately five dollars. The one illustrated was built from clear white pine 1″ thick. The hearth is made from a piece of pressed composition wood, and the same material is used as a back, which is then covered with an appropriate wall paper. The top door swings down to make a handy serving shelf. The decorations on the front are pieces of large dowels, cut in half and painted a contrasting color.â€”J. S. Bardwell.
