Bar Carts are all the Rave

IMG_1005I have had this little table for 16+ years.  We bought it at Pier1 imports when we first got married.  It has traveled to 5 different homes and 2 states! The funny thing is we paid less than $100.00 for it.  This little table has been so versatile that I’ve just kept it.  Since we moved in this house almost 3 years ago, it really hasn’t had a purpose, but it was one of those things I couldn’t get rid of.  I think there was some sentimental attachments to this piece of furniture and even though it didn’t cost a lot it holds memories of first years of marriage, new babies, a big move to Ohio, starting our career back in Utah and moving into the home we’ve always dreamed of.  It’s funny how an object can tell a story….

So after 3 years of not really having a good place for it, I got a brilliant idea to turn it into a bar cart! I have been wanting one, I had seen one at Target over the holidays but decided not to spend the money at the time.  I love to entertain and I knew I would use a bar cart and they look so pretty all dressed in gold. 

I spray painted my little table with Krylon, metallic gold (it’s one of my favorites).  It took a few coats to cover the black.  I then added some fun pieces to dress it up for St. Patricks day.  I found some fun straws, cocktail napkins and coasters at Pier1 and HomeGoods.  I used a gold charger to hold the mixers on and then added some festive green and gold decor.







I am excited to switch the themes for different holidays and events. Bar carts can be used for some much more than just a bar.  It would be a perfect hot cocoa station in the winter. You could add marshmallows, candy cane and flavored syrups. I also think it would be fun for a kids birthday party to display the cake and the serving dishes on.  

 It fits perfectly in my basement next to our kitchenette and theater. It will be a perfect add on for entertaining, now, Who’s coming for drinks???

Thanks for stopping by today!
