the bar cart.

I’ve been pretty stuck on the “bar cart” idea. after gathering sufficient {inspiration}. and finding this gem of a {cart} from IKEA ..I got to work.

I’m in love.

finding the perfect cart is essential. I couldn’t get enough of the color, price, and adjustable shelves. then the fun begins: stocking your bar. [I really wanted a whiskey decanter. but every time I said “ohh I like that one,” I flipped the price tag to see it was $50+. too much for my blood. the whiskey decanter I found – on sale for $4.00 at hobby lobby. plus it’s blue!]. I’m still searching for the perfect {paper straws} ..they’ll be the cherry on top.

it’s one of my favorite corners in our home.

happy hump day!

bar cart inspiration.

ever since moving into our new place, I have been craving [yes, again] a bar cart. there is nothing more adult/1920’s about ..‘can I pour you a drink?’. 

so [J] & I gathered some inspiration. and began building our cart. [hint: ‘bar cart’ on pinterest leads to an array of ideas].

here are the tops.
