Bar Cart Stylin'

I need to start off this post with an apology to ya'll for being such a sporadic poster!
I've recently started a new job and there haven't been enough hours in the day to work, eat, and sleep, much less blog.
My sincerest apologies. As I get more settled in my new role (in a design related job, no less, AH!)
I promise my posting will become more frequent.
Please, bear with me.

Now for this post. 
I dropped by one of my favorite antique haunts in Fort Worth this weekend.
And found a bar cart for $60.
The best part? It's faux bamboo with TWO shelves.
And even better, after stripping the white paint it had on,
I found that it's a shiny brass underneath!

SO, I've been looking for some inspiration as to how to arrange it.

I think the way you arrange your bar cart says so much about you, dontchathink?

I'm a lookin' and I'm a likin' what this person did....
Especially with the San Pellegrino Aranciata. MY FAVE.

I will definitely be needing FABULOUS lowballs like these gold greek keys from Pieces!

And this pretty decanter from Pieces wouldn't hurt either.

congrats on your find. I love the sparklin' lemonade as well! I would say... fresh flowers bring an innocent - femme look to the bar cart. Esp against the gold/brass... sweet
