Bar carts are entertaining secret weapons: 1) They free up kitchen storage from all those liquor bottles; 2) they encourage guests to help themselves; and 3) when styled nicely, they just look so festive, sparkly, and adult-ish —they are party decorations on wheels. While IKEA doesn’t sell one per se, their products offer endless opportunities to hack a bar cart that’ll cost less than a round of drinks.
A bar cart is just on of the ten ways you can use and style a RASKOG cart, as The Kitchn shows you (also lead image above).
IKEA’s KALLAX is good for many things, but it works really well as a bar cart option. To switch it up, The Everygirl added some metallic legs as an accent and gold embellished barware.
My Fabuless Life modified a TARVA dresser with a pullout drawer for stashing glasses and bottles.
This IKEA TARVA dresser was adapted into a functional moveable entertaining station/bar by City Farmhouse.
I also can’t wait to see what happens when people get their hands on this pick from the new IKEA 2017 catalog. I foresee many projects and hacks in its future.
