when is a bar not really a bar? when it’s re-purposed into one — that’s when it simply becomes a bar. ’tis the season for serving festive cocktails and making cheery toasts but don’t stress out if you haven’t a bar cart! just create one — using an existing surface like an old end table, a bench, a cabinet of some kind — like an opened secretary desk or something like ikea’s very affordable FABRIKÖR cabinet. or, simply fetch a lovely tray and create your pretty bar there — place it on a buffet, coffee table, or even your kitchen counter and bam! you’re good to host those eggnogs and holiday cocktails of all kinds. if you want to anchor the look, add a piece of artwork behind it as you see in many of these inspiring images. of course, you can always opt for an actual bar cart, and i’ve got some vintage beauties in stock at super marché — like this brassy bar cart, this mid-century version or this rolling cart. cheers to stress-free cocktail hours!
