I got an amazing deal on it!
2 days after I purchased it, some of my Instagram friends let me know that the bar cart was actually marked down to 70% off! I took my receipt back to Target to see if they could do a price adjustment since it had only been 48 hours from when I purchased my bar cart. There was a little hesitation but eventually the price was adjusted so I ended up getting it for $40! I'm so happy I waited to buy it!
I hung two oversized playing card prints above the bar cart. I had planned on hanging the faceted mirror that's currently above our TV above the bar cart but I changed my mind at the last second and I'm glad I did!
The styling of both shelves will probably change soon. I threw everything together in about 5 minutes because we were having company over last weekend.
My DIY gemstone coasters are stacked underneath a new succulent that I planted in a 50¢ dip bowl from Target. I can't stop making things with those bowls!
I like the bar cart as-is but I'm contemplating some makeover ideas for it.
One of those ideas is to add a hanging stemware rack underneath the top shelf (above the giant cork) since there's so much space between the top and bottom shelves. Hanging the wine glasses will free up some space for other things like an ice bucket, a shaker, some cocktail napkins, etc.
Fun fact: 5 of the bottles of alcohol were gifted to us. 2 came from when we closed on our house and the other 3 were Christmas gifts from my boyfriend's company. 1 of the others I bought because I liked the label and the remaining 2 were purchased for cooking purposes.
The giant champagne cork was a Christmas gift and is actually a door stop but we don't have any doors that need to be stopped so I use it as a decoration.
The reddish-brown box underneath my gemstone coasters holds our set of Dexter coasters. If you watch the show, then you probably know the significance of the "slides" :)
Who wants a margarita? ;)
I think the playing card prints are very fitting for the space above the cart. I hung them above one another so your eye would be drawn up to the ceiling. It makes our 10' ceilings seem even taller!
My disco gnome (no longer available) is still hanging around 4 months after Christmas! It was part of the Novogratz' holiday collection for CB2 but it doesn't scream "holiday" to me so I'm leaving it out year round. When the sun hits the mirrors in the morning, sweet little reflections are cast all over our walls :)
Want to know another fun fact? Those red cups are actually ceramic!
I plan on putting together a living room tour for you as soon as our gallery wall is completed so you can see how everything looks together in the space.
What's on your bar cart? Am I forgetting anything?
