Who Needs a Bar Cart? Organize Your Home Bar With Lacquer Trays

Kitchen Inspiration

If Memorial Day has you restocking your home bar this weekend (if for no other reason than to make this amazing strawberry spring sangria), here's something to consider: you don't need a bar cart! You can have a sweet home bar setup with just a shelf and a few lacquered trays.

This vintage gold étagère is quite glam, yes, but it's the lacquered trays we're interested in. Set up side by side on a shelf, they're perfect for organizing bar essentials — and the white is particularly clean and chic.

So forget about getting that bar cart! You don't need it. Just clear off a little space on a bookshelf, buy a few lacquered trays (like these from West Elm) and you're good to go.
