Bottoms up......bar carts

Bar carts have been popular for a few years and every retailer
 is selling some version of it.
 I wanted to find alternatives to the usual suspects found everywhere

Why not use what you already have? Add a pretty tray with glasses and liquor to a console or buffet and instantly you have yourself a bar! No need to make space for another piece of furniture. 

Colorful console. 
Artsy console. 

 I love the use of industrial or workshop items in home decor. 
They're harder to find, but sometimes it's all about the hunt. Try flea markets or salvage companies.

Or add some shelves in your dining room or living room.

Bar shelves. 

Accessorized bar shelves. 

Another fun trend is restaurant and hospital industrial shelves and carts.

  1. I like the vintage hospital cart - kind of makes sense right? With you being an ER nurse? : )

  2. All of these make lovely alternatives! Sometimes you just have to work with what you have, especially if space is limited.
