Are you guys as in love with the bar cart trend as I am? There’s just something so delightfully old school about a well stocked bar cart having a place in the home. It makes me think of the days when you’d never dream of welcoming guests into your home without offering them up their cocktail of choice. That said, a lot of the gorgeous bar carts being stocked in stores these days are pricey with a capital ‘P’ so I’m loving the rush of DIY bar carts and hacks popping up these days. Now we can all have the lock without dropping major cash! And you know I love saving money with some DIY action. Want to add a bar cart loaded with style to your own home?
