Bottoms Up: My Bar Cart

A few months ago I scored this cart at the thrift store for only $7. I instantly knew I wanted to use it as a bar cart and paint it gold. I’m going to be honest with you here, I have the uncontrollable desire to paint everything in gold, so it was no surprise. And who doesn’t want their alcohol on wheels? It can go with me anywhere in the house. That’s all anybody can ask for.

The cart was in pretty bad shape and with the help of my boyfriend (and by help, I mean he did almost everything), we were able to transform it into the lovely little bar cart below.

Below is what it looked like before I jazzed it all up with liquor and other such things. It had to be sand blasted to remove all the paint, then primed and spray painted gold. There are probably a lot of other details, but I can’t help you with that since I didn’t do most of it.

Kicking Things Off Right!

newyear

Oh hey! Long time no post, eh? I have a tendency to post something and then disappear into thin air for 3-4 months. I’ve become quite good at it. Well, I’ve decided that this year I will stop doing that and push myself to be more creative. Let’s give it a whirl, shall we? Here we go, on to a new year!
