how to style a bar cart from soft surroundings,Hi friends!!! Today I wanted to show you how I styled this beautiful Burgundy Bar Cart from Soft Surroundings.  This bar cart is everything I was looking for when I was searching for a bar cart. It is both functional and decorative. Not only did I fall in love with its rustic design, and color, but I love that it has 3 shelves; enough room for storage and decorative pieces. And the best part is, it has wheels so it is very convenient to move from one room to another. Another great feature is that it is made out of brass, so it is very sturdy.  You won’t have to worry about anything falling off if you move it to another area of your house when entertaining.

To decorate the Burgundy Bar Cart, first thing you want to do is decorate the area where the bar cart will be. If it is against a wall, add a painting above the bar cart as a conversation starter, as well as to create balance to the area. Since the bar cart is brass, I added this painting with metallic colors, to compliment it.

I am so excited that I finally found a bar cart with 3 shelves. I wanted to have room for all the supplies, and enough room to add a few decorative pieces. The middle shelf I use for all my glasses, the bottom shelf has enough room for bottles, and the top shelf for preparing drinks, lemonade dispenser, lemon bowls, and straws.
