I’m not gonna lie, I’m a girl who likes her cocktails. A glass of wine, a chilly martini, a feisty margarita- all a lovely way to end a day if you ask me. I’m still in search of an (affordable) vintage bar cart for my office so come quittin’ time I can round up the fabulous ladies in the studio and toast to another day completed. This morning I felt inspired by vintage style bar accessories- because having a little proper bar in your home is a fabulous way to decorate an unused corner! I’ve started setting up one in my own home using the vintage buffet I got at an estate sale.
Obsessed with this vintage bar on Ebay. $.99 right now. Hellllllooooo lovah! Paint it black, white or a great color, pop this cute poster above it in a great frame and top with a tray of vintage decanters or glasses (like these mercury rimmed ones) and you are in business Mad Men style!
I can’t get over how fantastic this set is! It looks like Jonathan Adler, but it’s vintage….
This silver plate cocktail shaker from the 30’s would be beautiful sitting on top of a bar cart like this one from 1st Dibs!
This cart from C. Bell is freakin’ awesome- it’s top it with a tray of blue french opaline glasses (set of 35 for sale on eBay– trying to resist bidding since I collect them due to lack of storage!)
These animal print trays with ring detail would be great for stashing cocktail napkins and wine stoppers! Love!
Some images of great bar set ups to inspire you!
