6 Enviable Faux Bar Carts

Totally customizable, bar carts are a rare mix of timeless and trendy. Whether used as a statement piece, a work of art, or mixed into everyday décor, they turn any room into a spot perfect for both entertaining and lounging. Check out these impressive bar carts that aren’t really bar carts at all:


1. The top of a dresser or credenza is prime real estate for a faux bar.


Credenza Cart


The top of a credenza is an obvious choice to build a bar. It’s the right height and adds warmth to a space that might otherwise become a magnet for stacking junk.


2.A rustic coffee table so that the drinks are only an arm’s length away.


Rustic Coffee Table Cart


An industrial coffee table can moonlight as a bar cart if it’s used in the right setting. To make it even more rustic, add antlers, deer heads, and other wood-land inspired pieces around it.


3. The rolling kitchen island makes a coffee station any barista would ogle.

If you’re more of a coffee-lover, a coffee cart has the same aesthetic appeal as a bar cart and can look just as polished, too. Add everything you need to make the perfect cup of joe, including an eclectic mug collection.


4. Turn an old tv nobody knows what to do with into a swoon-worthy storage spot for spirits.

A repurposed midcentury tv becomes the perfect bar cart with a few DIY tricks. You’ll not only have a functional bar, but a conversation piece when guests come over.


5. Use a suitcase since it’s too cold to travel, anyway.


Suitcase Bar Cart


This brilliant bar cart isn’t so much a cart as it is a suitcase. Any vintage suitcase can serve as a cheap but versatile bar that’s easy to relocate around the house. It’s actually better than a bar cart because it has space to hide those little necessities that aren’t picturesque enough to display.


6. Let the library store some of your favorite books and drinks.

The library isn’t just for reading if you add a bar shelf in the middle of it. There’s not much better than a good book and an even better drink to go with it.
