Think outside the box.
A rolling storage cart does double duty in a backyard lean-to, easily moved closer to the door to serve as a temporary drinks station for outdoor entertaining. All cocktail necessities are arranged on the top shelf for easy access, while a metal tub filled with ice beside the cart helps keep drinks cool. A set of café curtains keeps the space from feeling too shed-like, and a potted hydrangea tree brings the outside in.
