HOME PROJECT: Happy Hour at home

I’m not saying that the summer is almost over because I would NEVER admit to that. Until it’s too cold to enjoy my rooftop patio without having to layer on clothes, it will still be summer in my mind. But as I am enjoying having cocktails and beer on the rooftop, I’ve started to think about how I will enjoy my cocktails indoors.

I’ve been scouring the net for various bar cart or bar area ideas and it seems that bar carts, well the ones I like, aren’t very cheap. We’ve also been contemplating on finding something that can be used as a bar cart or kitchen island since we have very very limited counter space in our kitchen.

Here are some ideas I found from Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel and Westelm.

I also want one of these small wine fridges.

As for styling the bar, here are some great ideas!
