IKEA hacking is the easiest way to turn something from cheap to chic. Creating a bar cart is the perfect example.

Purchasing a trendy bar cart can get pricey; they are pretty, but the cost can make us question their necessity. But luckily, you can easily transform IKEA supplies into a home statement piece for storing all your liquor and glassware.

Here are some great ideas that make for the perfect weekend project.

A thin computer desk with a glass top surprisingly makes the perfect bar. Keep the glass or replace it with wood, like Lifestyle365 did in this tutorial. The hanging wine glass holder makes a nice addition.

This kitchen cart converts super easily, no DIYing necessary. Or paint it if you want. Either way, it’s super cheap, super easy, and super functional.

For a more solid piece, convert an old dresser by removing some of the drawers and adding wheels. This tutorial from Average But Inspired creatively adds a wine rack at the bottom.

A stylish bookcase turned sideways is perfect for storing glassware. Add different legs to make the piece taller or shorter to suit your space. See more photos of how to style it on Daily Dose of Darling.
