As craft cocktails continue to grace the drink lists of more and more menus across the country, stylish bar carts filled with craft liquors and unique ingredients are rising in popularity as well. Today we're going to share what we consider to be the essential components of every good bar cart.
Bar carts can be pricey. Like waste-your-whole-paycheck expensive. But every now and then you can find a really great inexpensive alternative... and I'm here to share five of my favorites with you.
I have a wine rack. It's okay, but matches my taste from about a decade ago as opposed to now. While perusing the shops for a new one I came across this industrial chic version that can be DIYed with only a few materials.
When my sister Joyce, brother Tony and I were little, we used to play 'bar'. This involved filling my mother's old and chipped wine decanter with colored water, mixing drinks using a variety of different kinds of Cool-Aid and slurring our speech.

An old ammo box turned into a wall mounted wine bar?? A store-bought version will set you back 300 bucks at uncommon goods, but it could be easily DIYable. Just gotta find the right ammo box...or build your own.
On Tuesday, I gave you some of the elements that go into Building a Mad Men Bar, and today we are going to transform this vintage wooden piece into our own.
If all of this talk of fall entertaining drives you to drink, never fear, that's all you really need to be a great host. Building a stylish & chic bar can be your biggest asset during the cold and cozy seasons.

I've assembled most of our barware from Etsy. Vintage highballs, drinks carts and ice buckets that would fit nicely in Don Draper's office create an air of elegance we're sorely missing these days. I say we bring the classic five o'clock cocktail hour back with finds like these.
Hi Curbliers - We're still stocking our premium membership section with lots of fun, original how-tos. Now that the little ones have all grown up, its time to create some adult fun by transforming an old baby changing table into a smart bar cart.
"An old, outdated, three-tiered baby changing table seems like a perfect candidate for a makeover. Although the shelves are a bit too deep for a book shelf and the design doesn’t lend itself to a...

It's heartbreaking to come upon, consider and ultimately pass up a behemoth like a fab retro TV cabinet or stereo console due to the logistics of hauling it away and extracting the innards. Our friends over at ApartmentTherapy found photos of this clever TV to dry bar conversion that some brave souls undertook.
A giant bowl of wispy punch is certainly festive, but a true ghost-host offers their guest customized cocktails that suit their own tastes. Here's a few ideas to get your fall festivities popping.
Garnishes: ANY mixed drink can get a scary-fun makeover with a frightful garnish. Simply mix up drinks per usual, but sink one of the following into your highball or martini glass:
- Plastic spider rings

- A few drops of...

Some of the bar stools you pick up at Target or Wal-Mart in a weak moment are soooo cheap. Instead of discarding this piece of manufactured junk, just reupholster it with nifty fabric and keep it in your DIY shop. I use the same techniques to recover expensive round bar stools for clients.
