While we aren't big drinkers at my house, I've always been smitten with bar carts. I can't justify having a drink-prep-dedicated cart at home, but I could definitely make room for one with a day job. It could be used as extra storage, a console table, or a server most of the time and occasionally
stocked as a bar cart when entertaining. Here's a collection of carts that are versatile enough to be a stand-in for extra storage or kitchen prep space by day, but wheeled out as a bar cart when entertaining.

- 1 Libations Cart, $600 from Crate & Barrel: this cart has the same appearance as the Ponce (seen below), but at half the price.
- 2 Ponce Iron Bar Cart, $1,200 from The Classy Cottage: has an antique brass finish that's a welcome change from popular stainless steel.
- 3 Reclaimed Stainless Steel Lakeside Cart, $400 from Rustic Refinery: made from a reclaimed hospital cart fitted with a wood top.
- 4 901 Tea Cart, $2,230 by Alvar Aalto: this tea cart has a hefty price tag, but it's a classic found in the likes of MoMA's collection. I'd have no trouble finding uses for it in my home.
