decorate / bar tray

Ladies and gentleman, the bar cart bug has reached me. I like to think I was ahead of the curve as I have admired the bar cart in my grandparent’s home as long as I can remember. It’s most likely teak (all the furniture is mid-century modern and authentic…I always tell my grandpa how “in” his decor is, haha) and has two levels and a handle if I remember correctly. What always dazzled me was the assortment of cut crystal decanters not unlike the one below with their sparkling stoppers, magic looking liquids, and silver necklaces declaring the name of the contents. 

I have always wanted a cart of my own and it seems the current home decor trends are marching in the same direction. I probably will tackle this project in the fall and have my eye on a couple affordable carts:

{CB2 $49}

Or maybe a simple tray. I love the West Elm ones. 
And of course I’ll use the handy Matchbook Magazine Bar Cart Essentials list.
