If you read my first 2 posts, you would have seen most of my house by now, this is the last post in this series. I thought I would show you a close up of our bar cart, server and entry way table. I just bought this gold mirrored bar cart from Overstock.com a few months ago and I’m in love! I feel like a real adult who entertains with swanky parties now that I have one. 😉 This “champagne is always the answer” print is one of my favourite pieces in the house, I ordered it online after I saw it on Instagram. Unfortunately the online shop, no longer exists. Let’s just take a moment and acknowledge the fact that I champagne IS always the answer!!
Like I said in the previous post my server/storage unit is an old handy me down shabby chic dresser. I also like to use the top as a bar. 🙂 I am obsessed with mirrors and trays and you can find at least one or two in every room. Hence the name of my blog, Tray Chic.. 😉 I love that a nice mirrors just makes the space feel bigger and gives a bit of glam, depending on the frame. I also find I get sick of looking at the same art for too long but mirrors seem to stay fresh in my home forever.
I’m always rearranging the knick knack treasures that I have around my house and putting them in different places to keep my home looking fresh, so I don’t get bored. This black and gold tray I picked up at Superstore, which surprisingly always has cute stuff in their home section. The manly scotch glasses are new and were a gift to my man from my mother for Christmas.
My bar cart has 2 shelves and I had so much fun collecting all the glasses and bar ware from different places. I got my “cheers” glasses form chapters and my wordy rocks glasses form Marshalls. The whiskey handbook is my boyfriends and most of the other bar stuff is from Winners/Homesense. The alcohol changes seasonally as it disappears… 😉
If you saw my very first Tray Chic blog post, I mentioned how excited I was about our new entry way table. The one we had before was something I bought out of desperation and because it was on sale, and I always kind of hated it. I’m over the moon with the light wood and metal that make this piece look both modern and a bit manly. I bought it from Canadian Tire’s Canvas collection, and it makes me happy every time I see it. The owls are very old and I scored them at Superstore as well as the gold vase. The flowers are from Pier 1 Imports. The photos are what make the space personal. 🙂
I love begin able to sit down on this stool when you need extra help getting your shoes on and the crate is filled with extra pillow and this very cute owl I got at Pier 1 a few years ago. Well that’s the end of my home tour for now, I hope you enjoyed it. I’m sure I will update you all with new photos if we make any major changes or move!
