I’m so happy to reveal more of my apartment with you today! I knew I wanted a bar cart, and once more of my furniture came, I thought it would be a great way to fill up more of my space. I also really wanted something that was functional for hosting guests. I did some browsing online, but after finding this bar cart at Target, I was sold. It’s also only $123, which I found to be the most affordable of all of the other bar carts I looked at. Oh, and it was super easy to assemble!

It’s really easy to build a bar cart, and mine came together relatively quickly. I knew I wanted to have a cart that had enough to please everyone, and I wanted it to be cute, girly, and fun! Here are four tips for building your perfect bar cart.
Four Tips to Build Your Bar Cart
- Opt for bright colors! I pulled pink from the straws, cocktail napkins, and the Happy Hour sign.
- Show off glassware. I used wine glasses with pretty patterns and tumblers.
- Offer different mixers to please your guests. I chose lemon San Pellegrino, club soda, and tonic water. Keep easy mixers on hand that suit a variety of tastes.
- Make it fun! If it’s a staple piece in your home, then you want it to stand out!
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to link up everything as some of it was gifted to me, but I did my best to link up what I could. I was able to find some of the products or similar products I was gifted on other sites, but note that I didn’t necessarily shop directly from these stores. Additionally, my cocktail shaker is from Home Goods. I’d definitely check there if you want a budget friendly shaker. I think the one I found was only $5!
