Wednesday's Sketchbook: In Case You Missed It

Hi Loves! Just in case you missed my doodle last Wednesday, which I posted over at the lovely Landi's blog Freckled Confessions, I decided to share it here today.
The bar cart is one of my latest design obsessions. You might remember my vintage brass bar cart that I picked up this summer flea market hunting. Check out my post on that HERE for some amazing decor inspiration. I just finished spray painting it beautiful gold today (as it was fairly tarnished) and can't wait to start styling it!
I drew up my little bar cart with my dream accessories. Some I already own, like the decor books and the vintage crystal decanter (another flea market score), some I'm simply lusting after.

Either way, I've put together this little guide of how to achieve the look in your own place:

1. The Perfect Champagne (seen on most of the inspiration bar carts) - Veuve Cliquot
2. Pretty and fresh green limes
3. Coffee Table Books: Domino and Design Sponge at Home
4. Fresh cut peonies in pink
5. Fun striped paper straws
6. Inkblot Print by The Aestate on Etsy
7. Navy Ikat Bowl
8. A pretty glass wine decanter

Create an interesting vignette by incorporating non-alcohol related products such as art.
If you can't find a bar cart at the flea market (or afford one new..they can be a bit pricey) You can use a tray to achieve the same vibe.

Happy Wednesday!

You have serious creative talents Tiffany! I love the drawing you created - certainly more than a doodle :)

A bar cart is definitely on my list for my dream home (once I finally get more space)! I love your item selections – the coffee table books and the brightly coloured straws are a must for me!

So cute! Bar carts are the ultimate glam piece of furniture.

REALLY like the inkblot piece... thinking of buying it! Always great picks, Tiffany :) Hav you thought about starting an Etsy store where you sell your pieces?
