The funny thing I’ve discovered about the bar cart craze is that they’re a cart-load of fun, even without the bar. And great stylists everywhere are using them for parties, side tables, and even more surprising places in between.

I had my eye on this Threshold Bar Cart from Target for weeks when I finally saw it on the clearance aisle for only $38! Sure, it appeared as if someone had taken it on a joy ride through the aisle (and I promise it wasn’t me), but I knew my husband could put a little muscle behind it and get it straightened out in no time.

And once he did, it fit in perfectly in the family room.

I can already tell it’s going to be tons of fun to style for different occasions. And I’ve got plenty of great inspiration pics to give me ideas. Here are just a few of my faves. Clickthrough the links to pin fromoriginal sources…
