MY BAR CART

It seems every modern girl (over 21, of course) should incorporate a bar cart of some sort into their decor.
I've learned bar carts are convenient pieces of furniture that work well in small and large places alike. 
Sometimes it seems like theres barely enough room for Bao Bao and I to move about in my small apartment...but bar carts are multifunctional and can easily double as foyer or end tables. 
When my besties aren't over visiting for cocktails and gossip, my bar cart morphs into a pretty catch-all table that lives by the front door. A pretty silver basket holds my keys, sunnies and bills, and a vase of fresh flowers replaces the pretty glasses and beverages. 
Here is my fully stocked and ready to entertain...bar cart, though I have yet to frame my ERTE print which will be hung directly above it...soon!
WHERE DID YOU GET...?
*Bar cart: 
Flea market, $20. It was originally an ugly aqua color which I repainted in a high gloss gold. 
*Vintage style champagne glasses: 
TJ Maxx. They're super thin Czech crystal, exactly the shape and style i was looking for!
*Glass cobalt tumblers: 
Pier 1 Imports. 
*Silver glass ice bucket: 
Flea market, along with 6 matching glasses...one of which I used to hold cute heart stirrers which were gifted from a friend. 
*Small crystal decanter: 
Flea market. 
*Small gold striped glasses: 
Flea market.

  8. You for sure have a natural talent for the arrangements and photography in your photos. Your play on color and composition is absolutely professional looking. Any magazine or website would certainly hire u to do something like this. What is it... a graphic designer, advertising?? Anyway, bravo!
