Like B, I searched for the perfect (affordable) Bar Cart, but I didn't have the luck she did. W and I also live in a small one bedroom where storage is scarce, so one lovely trip to IKEA solved both of my problems. The Kallax shelving unit cost me $65 and 30 minutes with an ROI of both additional storage space and a unique home bar.
I am a huge minimalist. I love when things can be tucked away, allowing everything to have a chic and clean finished look. This unit serves as storage for our "home office", sports equipment, batteries, french books, CDs, and all of the other miscellaneous items that can easily be tossed into one of the removable boxes on the bottom shelf. I purchased an acrylic tray from Target (similar) that fit the shelf perfectly and had just the right amount of surface area for our favorite liquor, Skull vodka, and skull glasses (found at World Market).
Thank you IKEA for solving all of my problems. Now if only you could make Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls..
