For starters, I needed to make things a little more festive for the season. Several months ago, I picked up this awesome frame at Goodwill for $4. I had no idea what I would end up doing with it, but I was drawn to the natural wood frame.
After sitting in my garage for a while, upon closer inspection I realized that the wood backing would be perfect for a chalkboard. I simply removed the glass and sprayed the back panel with my chalkboard spray paint.
A little "Pinspiration" and I had a great holiday message. Jennifer was a great helper when it came to bar tending.
I really like the idea of having a serving area in the living space. I think it has application beyond beverages.
Have you noticed, bar carts have been popping up everywhere? The most popular seems to be the Target version.
While it's not a horrible price ($129.00), I've recently seen some great options on Craigslist that offer the same functionality. And let's face it, once you have it all decked out, you can barely even see the cart. Check out what a search for "Metal Cart" and "Bar Cart" yield on Craigslist in my area...

No matter what option you choose, the addition of a bar cart in your living space is a great idea.
Glad I finally had the chance to break mine in. Have a great weekend!!!
