Bar Cart

One of the things I’ve always wanted for my home is a bar cart. Sure, it started out as simply a functional piece for small space dwellers but it has now become a statement piece of the home.

If you love to entertain like I do, consider getting a bar cart. It can serve as a drink station or as a serving trolley for dinner parties.

Unfortunately, those cool looking modern bar carts can cost an arm and a leg and it’s really hard to find affordable ones in Manila.

The first trolley I ever bought is this Ikea bygel trolley. I bought it from an online seller who’s based in Singapore and she had it shipped all the way from there.

 

I was so excited to unbox it when it arrived!

The Ikea bygel trolley only comes in white color and galvanized steel. Before I assembled it, I spray painted the steel in gold.

So here it is, it’s just perfect right next to my bookcase.

I arranged some small plates for snacks. I also added beer mugs and wine glasses, a small cake stand, paper straws and candles. The trolley also came with a drawer so it’s perfect for keeping some drink stirrers, napkins and other stuff. The top shelf is also reversible and can be used as a tray.

I also used it as my dessert table which I wrote about here.


You can also use it as an extension of your kitchen.

The second bar cart I bought was this Treshold bar cart. In fact I bought two of these but decided to resell them at my online shop.

Just a week ago I found these gorgeous bar carts at affordable prices at an online store that’s based in Manila.
