Drink Up! Pieces for the Perfect Bar

When Harrison and I moved into our apartment in Chapel Hill two summers ago, the bar was one of the first things we set up (we have our priorities straight, right?). And for a while, we used it pretty often and kept it in great shape. It wasn’t until we had a few friends over the other week, though, that I realized how much we’d neglected our beautiful little bar. The top shelf was nearly void of any tools or decor, we were missing a few wine glasses, and our liquor collection was dwindling. Not to mention, we’ve yet to pick up some bar basics, like an ice bucket, decanters and highball glasses. And when it comes to the tools we do have, they’re pretty plain and boring. Really, who wants a cocktail made with boring bar tools?!
Fortunately, I’ve got my head in the (drinking/decor) game again, and I’m ready to turn that bar around! And what better way to do it than with some of these crazy-cute and chic accessories?

If you know me even the slightest bit, you won’t be surprised that most of these pieces have gold accents. But there’s just something about gilded pieces for a bar (or anywhere else, for that matter) that screams sophisticated. Am I wrong?
What are your must haves when it comes to decking out the bar?
