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.





from IKEA: shelf & brackets. under-shelf wine glass holder.

from hobby lobby: over-sized wine glass [used as our cork holder. we save ’em all].


from {TwoCoins Etsy Shop}: “eat, drink, and be merry” print & frame.


from hobby lobby: over-sized cocktail glass [used as an ice bucket]. whiskey decanter [obsessed]. green vase.

from TJ maxx: bowl for garnishes.

the finished product.


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!

    Don’t know how to do a mini-URL, sorry :-/ but as soon as I saw this I thought of those straws! I bought some similar (but more turquoise) ones for my sister-in-law for Christmas :)
