It all started this past summer when I found this great vintage looking ashtray while The BG and I were out and about in Saugatuk, MI.
I kept having visions of a vintage bar cart for my fabulous ashtray to sit on (even though The BG quit smoking, and for our last two houses I never, ever smoke inside.)
Suddenly I was obsessed with finding a bar cart. I found out that they are pretty darn expensive! I was almost committed to buying a new one online from Wayfair, when the antique fairy sprinkled her dust on me one Saturday.
Side note: Oh how I miss my Mom!! She is still in Texas taking care of my Uncle, and The BG makes a poor antique shopping pal next to her! LOL He is always wandering off and won’t stay next to me oohing and ahhing at things. Come home Mommy!!!
There she was a little vintage tea cart for $20.00 WOW!! I knew right away she was destined to become my bar cart. I had to buy some metallic gold spray paint to spruce up her dinged up metal, but after that she was good to go.
I went about decorating her with martini, rocks, and wine glasses. I tried to mix a little silver and gold together for some twinkle.
It will be great fun locating vintage barware to add. I already came across this really cool cocktail for two set made by Libby Glass still in the box.
Love it! Cocktail anyone?
It fits just perfectly tucked into a corner in our family room until which time I have to move the liquor to a locked closet when my girls get older and may try to take a nip! LOL
