Get your bar cart ready for summer….

I have always admired people with a bar cart in their living room because this looks so fancy and cool. Earlier (where I lived) I did not have enough space where I could easily put a bar cart and where it would match perfectly but now that we are in the house there is plenty of space so everything I needed was a bar cart then.
Tricky – I had seen lots of really pretty ones but whether there wasn´t enough space to put on stuff (for me) or they were just so pricey and I don´t want to spend a few hundred Euros on that thing although I really want one. I found one I really liked (price point is great and the right amount of storage) but it is kind of a milky creamy white and I did not like it at all so I went to the home department store and got some spray color for metallic material (I remembered that one of the bloggers I constantly read their blogposts (Southern Curls and Pearls) also bought Ikea furniture where she did not like the color and then got some spray color to turn it into the color she wanted) in a matte golden tone and it turned out pretty great. You really can´t tell that it had another color before.
So now that we got this lets talk about what else you might need for your cart:
First of all – and maybe that is on what I start most of my home decor projects – is the decoration. I found this incredible cute flacon which looks like it is straight out of a victorian beauty room at Nanu Nana. They are super affordable (prices range from 2 – 6 Euros). I also got a bast basket for oranges and lemons.
And also there have to be some coffee table books. I love them and I like to put them in every corner where I have some decoration.
I also got a print for the cart. I got it from Etsy as a printable download. It is a quote from the Great Gatsby movie so this is really matching the theme. Frame is from Ikea. I could go on like this but then it would be too long. All the items are linked below the picutres.
A wine or ice cooler would also be great but then you (or I) might need a bigger cart!
I just love how it turned out. I kept the color theme pretty simple with the gold, black and white.
I don´t have such a variety on liquors cause we usually drink wine or champagne with our food. In fact we don´t drink the hard things at all. Maybe a little shot for a summer bowl or a sangria but that´s it.
What are your bar cart necessities ?
Thanks for stopping by.
Take care. See you.
