Interior Inspiration: My Bar Cart

Over the past couple of years, I've taken quite the liking to the retro bar cart. I've pinned lots of inspiration and gathered ideas from home features of my favorite bloggers as they all seem to have one - each with its own personality and style. As you may have seen on instagram, I snagged the Threshold bar cart at Target a couple weeks ago for half off. It was pure luck, and I couldn't be happier that it was still there on my third visit (yes, true story). I love the frame of the cart and double shelves for displaying things. In all honesty, I'm using the cart for more aesthetic reasons than a functioning bar. Is that weird? Ok, maybe it is, but I don't care. I have lots of fun glasses, appetizer plates, books, coasters, etc. that have been simply sitting in a cabinet waiting for a place that they can be displayed. And now they have somewhere! I also called on my DIY skills for a few of the items featured and couldn't be happier with how they turned out!

I got the same cart before Christmas! Not at half price like you though... Lucky! I did get pretty much all the accessories. I couldn't help myself. But I think I'm going to make mine Mardi Gras-themed in a few weeks :)

Too cute! I love how you styled it, and I'm so jealous that you got the cart for half off! Excuse me while I make a quick trip to Target!

This looks great!! Our bar tray (no room for a cart at this point) is definitely more a decorative element than functioning bar as well!

So happy to have found your cute blog...I am enjoying reading!
