Which Furniture Store Has The Cheapest Bar Carts?

If you have free space in your dining room, living room, or kitchen, one of the trendiest and most stylish ways to fill it is with a bar cart. Bar carts were originally called tea trolleys when they gained popularity in the late 19th century but were soon repurposed for conveniently displaying and serving alcohol, among a variety of other drinks (via Nathan James).

Because of how timeless and fashionable bar carts are, they tend to be on the pricier side when purchased new. You don't have to break the bank to include a decorative bar cart in your home, though. For example, you can try to hunt one down second-hand from a thrift or vintage store or repurpose another piece of furniture. Alternatively, you can find bar carts for very reasonable prices at popular furniture stores if you know where to look.

Bob's Discount Furniture timber walnut bar cart

True to the store's name, one of the most affordable bar carts is sold at Bob's Discount Furniture.
