It seems like everyone has a bar cart these days, and everything even remotely square and/or roll-y is getting turned into a bar. I thought I'd seen it all, until I saw these photos of vintage secretaries being used as bars. Could this be any more perfect?

Think about it — all those drawers and shelves make for a perfect place to stash bottles and glassware, and the fold-out writing surface provides ample room for mixing drinks. If you'd prefer not to look at cocktail shakers all day, or you have adventurous kitties, you can just fold everything back up when you're done with it. And a vintage piece is a wonderful way to add a little old-world glam to your modern space.

A new piece could also do the trick: here's Pottery Barn's Graham Desk and Hutch doing drinks service.

What do you think? Have we inspired you to go secretary shopping this weekend?
