Find your bar cart personality

I won’t lie, the first piece of furniture I bought for myself when I said so-long to roommates was this industrial-style bar cart. I knew I wanted to start collecting wood and metal pieces, and I fell in love with this (affordable!) option from World Market.

Now, this post isn’t about what liquor you need for a complete cart, but rather what’s your design style related to your bar cart. I lean heavy on industrial design, but overall my style is fairly eclectic. I chose to pick a theme–maps and geography–to play off the colorful bottles on my cart.

Browse photos of my cart below, and then choose for yourself which design style suits you best, plus discover which accessories are must-haves for any stylish liquor trolley. 🙂

Copy my style with a mix of industrial, or find a cart that suits your personality!

If all that wood ain’t your thing, go the glam route with shiny gold metal and glass tops.

steal: Pier One bar cart / spend: Safavieh bar cart / splurge: Layla Grace bar cart (Bonus this comes in silver, too!)

Or maybe you’re a mix of the two styles, something that lies between vintage and mid-century modern.

Whatever your style is–don’t forget to throw in fun items like trays, books, flasks, decanters and other items to break up all the bottles!
