Sorry I fell of the grid again.  I always appreciate when readers email me to make sure I'm okay.  
Just had a case of "too much on my plate".  
We went to Mexico last week for Spring Break.  
Going away for a week and trying to wrap up all the loose ends before leaving makes me a little crazy!

We are home again and back in our routines.  
A grand time was had by all.  I'll share some pictures later this week.  

Now, onto the bar cart in the bedroom.....

 I found this little gem in a thrift shop a few months ago.  It was $7.50.
I snagged it right up.

It's quite imperfect, which is perfect for me. 

I moved it around the house for a while trying to find the best spot for it. 
Turns out the best spot for the bar car happens to be my eleven year old daughter's room.

Oh, and I got this fabulous lamp last week at Goodwill for $3.00. Already had the shade. 
I went in to drop off the leftovers from my tag sale (more on that later too).
When I am within a half mile of a thrift store, I can't help but pop it. 
So clearly it makes sense that I would drop off a ton of stuff I don't need and
then buy more stuff I don't need.  I've got problems, people. 

Clearly this bar cart is not stocked with liquor and glassware. 

 Just a few essentials for a little tween girl - 
a bible,  a devotional, pretty flowers, books, souvenirs, and a picture of friends. 

The perfect spot for an imperfect piece. 

For now, anyway.  Who knows where it will end up.
Did I mention I have problems?

So tell me.  Could you, would you, put a bar cart in your child's room?


  1. I love it, what a creative use of a vintage piece. It looks wonderful and make the most fabulous side table. I would love for you to link up to my ongoing Inspire Me party at http://www.astrollthrulife.net/2014/04/211th-inspire-me-tuesday.html. Hope to see you there. Hugs, Marty

  2. That's a fabulous idea! It's not like it's stocked with alcohol - okay THAT might be a little weird in your daughter's room! Otherwise I think it's perfect in there! I am searching for a new home within my house for our bar cart……..it lost it's spot because nothing is safe around here :) How awesome that you got away with your family to someplace warm!!!! I could use a little Mexico right about now!!!!

  3. love it in there! i actually didn't buy one i saw last week and am kicking myself. why oh why?!?!?!?

  4. It's perfect in there, I moved mine next to my sofa like an end table. Pretty styling, too!

  5. Totally would put it in a bedroom! They would make awesome nightstands too. Just another reason to want one! Don't you kind of hate it when the good stuff ends up in your daughter's room? The bench that I wanted to work so badly in my room ended up wanting to live in Izzy's room instead :( Oh well, the furniture knows better than I :D Oh, and I'd be popping in all the time too if I lived that close to the thrift store.


I love reading each and every one of your comments!
