If you've ever entertained in a small home, you know that it's easy to run low on surface space. I've done it all the time in my small apartment, and my top stresses have always been where to put extra plates, where to put extra serving dishes of food, and where to put drinks for my guests:
This little bar cart project by Naomi over at Design Manifest solves all of those worries in one fell swoop.
Perfectly placed in a black-painted niche, the vintage gold bamboo cart is perfect (perfect, I tell you) for having extra plates on hand, as a home base for serving drinks, and as extra horizontal space for stashing serving dishes.
A piece of art over the cart makes it feel settled into its home. Or you could move the cart around depending on where you're entertaining from party to party. Dinner party? Set up the cart near your dining table. Cocktails? Set up the cart as a bar in the living room.
