It’s not a new idea, but somehow, after several years of nothing but bar carts on our radar, liquor cabinets seem freshly fun.

Mandi from a Beautiful Mess recently made this beauty because her liquor collection and her roving toddler didn’t exactly make a great mix. We can think of lots of reasons why you may prefer to hide your bottles.

Maybe you don’t have the floorspace to delegate to a roomy cart or maybe you’d just rather roving eyes didn’t notice how fast you empty your bottles. Whatever the reason, closing a cabinet door is always a great option.

If you don’t want to DIY, any pretty cabinet will do. Just follow the golden rule and make sure to measure your bottles (height and width) first to get a good fit.
