Is there anything more glamorous than gathering for cocktail hour come 5pm? Give yours Art Deco style by creating a bar cart for serving your concoctions, from martinis to Manhattans and margaritas. Source the cart from a retailer such as eBay or Etsy at a steal and paint yours in Quick Dry Satinwood after priming if it’s not already painted. We’d suggest a jewel-toned colour that harks back to the Golden Age – ours is painted in Proud Peacock – like rich greens, reds or yellows. To finish? Line the surface of each level with spare wallpaper you may have to-hand, and accessorise with glasses of different styles, a cocktail shaker and accoutrements, bowls of garnishes and ice, and of course, spirits and mixers. Happy hour, indeed.
