Celebrating the moments of your outdoor living life with a cool refreshing beverage is always a good idea.

Convenience makes a fabulous party guest, and a beverage station or bar cart sur le patio is as convenient as it is necessary.

The image below reminds me of the vintage sewing machine stand I bought at a flea market when Dave the Builder and I were dating.

Dave found a scrap piece of marble to serve as the top and we were in business.

I first used the marble top sewing machine stand as a bistro table, then a kitchen island, then a microwave stand, and eventually a poolside bar/beverage stand.

Nothing fancy by any means, but unique (at the time) and very versatile.
