Using the powers of good for evil

The Ordinary Lovely: A very modern bar cart

It feels a little bit wrong, like using the powers of good for evil, taking a piece of furniture which has been so thoughtfully designed and manufactured for a child's room and turning it in to a bar, but oh my, just look at it! My apologies, Great Little Trading Co., the Clifton organiser really is a fantastic product for keeping bedrooms tidy and storing so, so many toys, but it's also amazing at storing so, so many bottles of gin. So, so many!

I've been searching for a bar cart or drinks trolley for years now but most are extremely ornate ... beautiful but not quite right for a modern home. We really wanted something which would fit seamlessly with our light and bright decor, something stylish but practical, and I think we've found it.

The depth of the storage boxes means that the organiser can house a serious amount of toys. But I always knew that it's true destiny lay in a fourth way ... as a home to gin, vodka, a cocktail shaker, and teeny weeny drinks umbrellas (well, it is the festive season, after all).

That's one of the reasons why I love Great Little Trading Co. so much and am hugely proud to be on their testing team - they make the most amazingly versatile furniture and I can find multiple places to use pretty much all of their products (have a look at the post I wrote for the GLTC blog about the Abbeville cube unit). These are not pieces which you want to hide away in a bedroom and close the door on, these are gorgeous storage units, shelving and organisers which you'd happily have up front and centre in any home. Like in a living room. As a bar. 

What do you think? Care to join me in a drink?
