Beverage Cart Makeover

I picked up an old cart with wheels at a local salvage barn and quickly 
turned it into a beautiful beverage cart...

The cart came home with me looking like this...

It had great bones and I loved the height... it was a little bit taller than many carts. 

I began by cleaning the piece and tightening all the screws. A quick sanding was all it needed to smooth the surface. 

I'm using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Old White to paint this cart and while there is no sanding or priming needed for painting, a smooth surface is always a good place to start.

I added a wine glass rack to the under side of the top. These are pieces I had left from a recent thrift store spree. You can see how the pieces were assembled here.

The cart had a built in dowel to hang a tea towel as well as handles on each side of the cart.

 I added a knob to the front of the cart to hang a wine opener.

This cart had great style and now is the perfect cart to serve beverages, drinks, or food for entertaining.

  2. love the cart as I usually do all your creations. A few days ago I spent 2 hours pinning stuff from your Pinterest boards. You really rock the re-dos in my opinion.
