mini bar

When I saw Camille Styles bar cart on Pinterest

it made me happy.

I’m not a big booze hound {I do admit to LOVING red vino}, so I didn’t go to a happy intoxicated state, but I think it’s just so pretty and charming…and how fun would it be to have a mini bar like that and have girlfriends over for some cocktails and good times?!

It got me to thinking – with my limited space, what kind of cart would I buy for a mini bar in my home?

First, I found some inspiration…

Mini Bar on a Mirrored Tray, Such Pretty Things
{you can find several budget-friendly priced tray mirrors at Target, like this one here for less than $20.}

Vintage Bar Cart, My Scandinavian Home

Bar Cart, My Scandinavian Home

Triple Trolley Bar Cart, Glitter Guide

Antique Dresser Bar, Honestly…WTF

Wall Mount Cabinet/Bar, Plow & Hearth

Then, I found some pieces to add to my wish list.

Bar Cart, Pottery Barn {$549}

DIY Chevron Bar Cart, The Swede Records

Mirrored Top Tray Table, Horchow {$700}

Formosa Tray Table, CB2 {$39.99}

Ebony Finish Square Tray Table, Overstock {$137.99}

Ernest White Bar Cart, CB2 {$149}

Nickel-plated Antique Butterfly Cocktail Table Tray, Overstock {$115.44}

Tool/Bar/Garden Cart, Harbor Freight Tools {$75}
{for a more industrial look…and multipurpose}

 Lachlan Tray Bedside Table, Pottery Barn {$199}

Caneel Bay Bar Cart, Furbish {$800}

OK, so I want THIS ONE {of course I would want one of the most expensive ones from Pottery Barn…}. That, or I will have to scour flea markets/antique markets for a lovely vintage bar cart find!

What one do you want?

Next, stock my bar cart. Thank God for Martha Stewart…she shares bar essentials with us here so your bar can be freshly stocked for your party.

  1. I love this post! I found an old AV stand that needs a coat of paint that reminds me of the cart in the 4th picture. But, I think I would have to choose the first one as my favorite. I’m not much a drinker either and I read a blog recently that had a bar cart featuring fun flavored sodas, juices, sparkling water, and a variety of snacks. Very cute.

      Thanks. You should totally use the AV stand. There is an adorable photo of a AV stand turned into a bright yellow mini bar on Pinterest – it’s so cute! And, a mini bar filled with non-alcoholic drinks sounds fabulous too. Let us know if you get around to converting it!

  2. So pinning this! Click if you wanna follow<3

  3. i love that the mini bar is back! so many style variations, they’re all so great 🙂

  4. So many great options! I am definitely in the market for a bar cart, thanks for sharing!
