Ikea VITTSJÖ Desk to bar cart + Bar Cart Styling

June 29, 2016

We had this Ikea desk from our last apartment that we never used (it's miniature for a desk) and so Mark had the brilliant idea to turn it into a bar "cart" since he knew I really wanted one. It's not technically a cart since there are no wheels, but you get the picture. We used this blog post as our guide and inspiration. Thankfully Mark did all of the actual work cutting/sanding/staining and I just did the styling. Teamwork! I'll link as much as I can at the bottom :)
Desk: Ikea. Wine racks: Amazon. Gold wine glasses: World Market. Gold champagne flute (used for straws): World Market. Fruit straws: World Market. Cocktail swizzle sticks: Amazon (seriously the cutest). Mint julep cup: Amazon. Lemon glasses: The Dollar Store (similar). Moscow mule mugs: these were a gift, here's a similar option. Used corks: Amazon (yes, you can buy these). Cocktail strainer: Amazon. Cocktail muddler: Amazon. Acrylic wine racks: Target. Silver tray: Homegoods (similar). Decanters: Amazon and Amazon. Champagne flutes: Target. Swizzle tumbler: Crate and Barrel. Minneapolis Prints: The Minnesota Historical Society.

The "cart" is right by our kitchen table, but I moved it to get better photos, so here are a few to show you what it actually looks like:

Thanks for reading!
