Bar Cart Reveal

30 Sep

Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend! I finally found my perfect bar cart from Target. You may remember it from my obsessions list. It is just the right size and color for my living room. An added bonus it was under $200! I pulled together items old and new to style it perfectly. I love the fact that this cart can evolve and change depending on what’s on it. Hope you all like it!


I’m in LOVE! I painted that canvas hanging above the cart. I will show you more details tomorrow.

I love our Mr. and Mrs. Rocks glasses from Furbish Studio! The tray they are sitting on was another craft project. I took a bare wood tray from Michael’s painted the edges gold and covered the surface with paper from Paper Source. I put a lacquered finish over it to protect from spills.

A special thanks goes to my friend Jen for the use of her snazzy camera to get these crisp shots.

      Thanks! The shaker is from the Neiman Marcus for Target collection last year. They are now available on Amazon. It’s called the Altuzarra Shaker.
