Bar Carts – A New Idea for Home Decor
We’ve discussed the importance of multi-purpose furnishings for small spaces. There are multitudes of multi-purpose pieces but one of the hottest is the bar cart!
By the way, do you love this Call Me Old Fashioned Wall Art? I sure do! I ordered one for myself and it’s a real conversation starter. To be honest, an Old Fashioned is my favorite cocktail.

Bar carts/serving carts are perfect for almost every room in your home.
Obviously, the bar cart is meant to be..well, a bar cart! It will look lovely in your dining or living area but, more important, it’s excellent storage…especially if cupboard space is lacking. Plus it’s super easy to move wherever the party is happening.
Use one in the kitchen as a place to store baskets and serving pieces. The top can double as a countertop for rolling out cookie dough or whipping up a batch of muffins.
In a bathrooom as a spot for fluffy towels and bath salts and a bouquet of flowers! Pretty as can be and useful, too.
In a bedroom as a night stand! In an office area for whatever you need to have within reach.
Here are two of my favorites:
