Few things get me excited in January.. a blank slate, the thought of Spring around the corner and a bar cart make over! I like to start the year off with a ‘Base Bar Cart’. I feel that if I set it up with some great, have to have basics, it’s very easy to switch out pieces throughout the seasons for a fun, customized bar cart every month!
My bar cart is one of my favorite little corners in our house. It’s so easy to redecorate whenever I get the urge + one of the few places I feel like I have complete freedom to be as girly as I want! I love seeing how it changes from month to month and how it serves as the perfect background whenever I have my girlfriends over to celebrate.
If you are looking to add a bar cart to your home, you don’t necessarily need a cart! We have an antique sewing desk in our living room that I converted into a manlier bar cart for Babe. I keep his nicer whiskeys on it and our record player.
A bar cart (or table, or stool, or shelf) is the perfect place to show some personality. Some girls add books, pictures or even clothing accessories. I’ve seen them simple and chic or quirky and loaded up. It’s so fun to play around with your pieces. A few necessities I like to keep on mine:
-Cute bottles of wine or champagne that we’ve received as gifts
-An ice bucket that doubles as a koozie holder when not in use
-a Gift Tag set, perfect for a last minute present! Makes a bottle of wine seem a lot more thought out and personal
-a Bar Tool Set
-My favorite glasses
-Fun book of cocktail recipes
Anthropologie is one of my favorite places to snag pieces for our bar cart, but I also love picking up random items from all over! I hope you’re as excited as I am to see how the cart evolves throughout the upcoming months, I’m already dreaming of my Valentine’s Day cart. 😍
I would love, love, love to see your bar carts at home! I am always looking for new inspiration for mine. If you share a picture on Instagram be sure to tag me (@YesPleaseDaily) + the hashtag: #🙋YesPlease so that I can check it out.
I don’t know about y’all but all this bar cart talk has me dreaming of 5 o’clock and a big glass of wine. I’m linking my bar cart below as well as some few super cute pieces I am looking to add! xo
