After months of online shopping, vintage-store cruising and craigslist scouring I finally found a decent looking bar cart for less than $100.  It was Etsy that came to the rescue, with a ’50s brass bar cart for an affordable $60 (versus the $100, $200 and $300 pricetags most online retailers charge). Hallelujah!  My dream of being a Mad Men cast member is that much closer to being a reality.

    It’s been neat to see how your place is coming together! It’s looking very modern retro art deco!!

    • Thanks Hannah. It’s been a real process. When I think about what it looked like when we first moved in, I’m shocked by how much has changed. Who knows what it will look like a year from now.

    It really goes well with your 50s house. Now you need some nice bottles of liqueur. Also, can’t get over the flowers you still have blooming.
