Ever since moving into our apartment last March I’ve been hunting for the perfect bar cart. A gold one. With wheels, so I can push it from one side of our dining room to another. Glass or mirrored it makes no matter to me. I’ve actually fallen in love with quite a few––but if you’ve ever shopped for a bar cart yourself you know the really beautiful ones aren’t cheap.
Ironically, the thought of shelling out over a thousand dollars for a decorative piece of furniture that frequently needs to be dusted leaves me needing a strong drink.
Thankfully I found an inexpensive back-up while my search for the perfect, affordable bar cart continues. I recently stumbled upon this gorgeous mirrored tray––at World Market of all places.
Between the rustic gold finish and the mirror base, I instantly saw it had glam potential––just what our somewhat manly dining room was missing. More on that to come, but for thirty dollars, I couldn’t get it into our apartment fast enough.
Most mirrored mini bar trays are the perfect size for two or three bottles, a couple of decorative rocks glasses, a classic cocktail shaker and a fancy jigger, which is actually perfect if you’re entertaining for a small group.
I know eventually I’ll find a perfect bar cart in my budget that checks all the boxes but in the meantime, this glitzy, mirrored mini bar tray is definitely filling the void.
