Thrifted Cart Turned Bar Chic - Live Pretty on a Penny

Thrifted Cart Turned Bar Chic



A few weekends ago, I found this bar cart at Goodwill for $5 and although I had not particular use for it at time, I just couldn't leave it in the store.



Recently, I have decided to start building my arsenal of libations for when we have guests, but as I purchased different drink options, I realized that I had no where to store them. That's when it hit me that the thrifted cart would make the perfect bar cart with a little tweaking.


To makeover this cart, I used my favorite gold metallic spray paint by Krylon, Designfolie Marble Contact paper, and foam board (not pictured).

I also removed two of the shelves that came with the cart so that I could store a variety of different bottle types.

Since the weather has been so beautiful, I went outside and I applied several coats of spray paint to my cart. I just love how the color came out!





I then cut a couple pieces of foam board and wrapped the marble contact paper to create a solid shelving option for each cart shelf.

An voila! Such a simple makeover for such a big bang!








I just love how it turned out and it's a great addition to my family room table top bar. You can check out that post here.

Well, that's all for today. I hope that everyone is having a fantastic week.

Until next time...
