4 DIY Bar Carts We Love

September 2, 2014 by Ashley Willis

Bar carts are an essential piece of furniture for any home that has the occasional get-together with friends and family. While store-bought versions can costs hundreds, you can easily recreate your own or spruce up an older version from a thrift shop or garage sale without spending a small fortune. These carts are perfect when you don’t have the space or budget for an actual bar in your home or apartment, and need a more convenient place to display your cocktail glasses, ice bucket, wine and liquor selections other than the cabinet underneath the sink!

Here we have pulled together our favorite 4 bar carts you can easily create with a DIY project this weekend. Which one is your favorite?

The Vintage Bar Cart

We adore this vintage bar cart from The DIY Playbook! A budget-friendly find at Home Goods allowed this blogger to add instant eye candy to her living room and space for her cocktail necessities. See her post here for more gorgeous photos for inspiration: LINK

The Shabby Chic Bar Cart

This entire bar cart was made by the blogger behind Shanty 2 Chic – yes, the entire bar cart! We love the shabby-chic feel of this design. The tutorial looked quite manageable, even for us not-so-handy-sisters. Give it a try and let us know how it goes! Get the full how-to with photos and a shopping list here: LINK

The Sleek Bar Cart

A rags to riches story for a bar cart. Discovered at a garage sale, this bar cart was in need of some serious love and with the proper tools, the bloggers behind Design Sponge turned this old piece of furniture into a sleek, modern wonder! See the entire process from start to finish here: LINK

The Statement Bar Cart

This might be our most favorite DIY bar cart yet. If you’re going to have one in your dining or living room, why not make it loud and eye-catching?! Domestikated Life thought pink was the perfect pop of color and we couldn’t agree more! Topped with bright flowers, coaster, napkins and straws your guests will be drawn to this bar set up immediately! See how they styled this cart here: LINK
