I want it now – bar cart

Recently I’ve wanted nothing more than to add a panache of bar cart to our living room, and the fab weather we’ve had here in Dublin is only just intensifying it. Hot weather and cool drinks has pushed me over the edge and it’s now my mission to own one of these sweet, sweet honeys. That, and my long time love of decanters.  

Napkins, stirrers, straws, decanters, tumblers, trays, coasters, and cork collections. Hold me back, bro.

And equally easy on the eyes, the gentleman’s bar cart …

I would adore, adore, adore if I could find a bar cart in a second hand shop. I’m the type of person that doesn’t like having too many new things as there’s a lot to be said for pre-loved pieces. I’ll be hitting the city centre today, and I’ll scour a couple of charity shops with the hopes of finding a haggard cart in need of some TLC. 
It’s Saturday – stop being on the internet and get outside. xx A

    Old medical carts work great too. My friend picked up one at a junk shop that had to be pulled out from under a pile. Fantastic find – all enamel.

      Managed to find one 30 minutes after I blogged this. I'm tore up for the floor up over it. Just you wait and see my sweet.

    I've had this on my wish list for ages too! So much so that I've bought everything I want to go 'on' the cart but no luck with the bar cart yet. I've found searching for drinks trolley on this side of the pond sometimes gets up more results online. Hope you find a lovely one soon!

      Same here, Ciara! I've collected so many little things like napkins, stirrers, decanters, tumblers, and adorable coasters, all in anticipation of eventually being a fancy grownup and owning one.

    your talking cold drinks and I am brewing up hot drinks, ahhhh the seasons. Is it possible to use a tea trolley for your bar cart? Good luck on your bar cart mission!! May the force be with you. I am heading off to a vintage fair this coming weekend and I can't wait.

      Most excellent idea Janine! I would adore to adapt it to a tea {and hot chocolate} trolly for the winter months. I think I'll have to do a photo shoot of both versions. Cannot wait. xx
