Inspiration:: Bar Carts

As I mentioned before, my husband and I just purchased our first house in Southern California (a little town in Los Angeles County called La Mirada). If you're a homeowner or just moving into your own place for the first time, you know there are so many things you need to furnish your home. You have your essentials--bed (or mattress), seats (the floor is comfy too!), ideally a dining table or some sort of table to eat at or hold your things, etc. I want a bar cart! My husband doesn't think it's necessary, and really it's not an absolutely positively necessary piece of furniture, but I think they're so classy (and I don'trarely drink). As I've done my research on which one to get for my home, I picked out some favorites:

|1| Lucite Two-Tier Bar Cart from 1stDibs; |2| Lisbon Bar Cart from Wayfair;  |3| Threshold Gold Bar Cart from Target; |4| Fleur de Lys Bar Cart from 1stDibs; |5| Libations Bar Cart from Crate & Barrel; |6| Metropolitan Bar Cart from Z Gallerie; |7| Bordeaux Bar Cart from Z Gallerie; |8| Abbott Zinc Top Entertaining Buffet from Pottery Barn

We have this sofa table that I've made into my pseudo dining area organization "thing," and I store our wine and liquor there, but if there's no wet bar, I think a bar cart is needed. Which is your favorite? I've pinned my favorites in a special Pinterest album (take a peek!).
