{DIY} VINTAGE BAR CART

BY POPULAR DEMAND!

THE STORY OF HOW I BROUGHT NEW LIFE TO AN OLD BAR CART! 

When I was transforming my latest dining room for a client, I had no idea that bar carts were on the rise of trends!  So once I had them sold on why they needed a bar cart, the hard part was finding one in our budget.  Most bar carts I found started at $400 and went anywhere as high as $1,500!!  Wowza!  That was more than our budget for the entire space!  So that meant I was on the hunt for a bar cart, that was cheap!!  

I found this guy tucked away in an antique store.  It had books and objects stacked all over, but I saw some potential underneath all that!
Key elements I was looking for in a traditional bar cart included, wheels on the bottom, a handle bar on one side to push the cart around if needed while entertaining, at least two levels for storage, and glass! 

This guy had all of the above, and for only $100, it was a score! After a can of hammered gold spray paint to give the piece a more vintage style, this bar cart looked brand new!

THE GEM OF A DINING ROOM:  

FINISHING TOUCHES OF THIS DINING ROOM MAKEOVER


This Dining Room just wasn't complete until we changed out the chandelier.  When building a new home, sometimes you are under so much pressure to get items picked out that you don't choose what you really want in a space.  So after living with a builder basic chandelier for years, this client was finally getting the chandelier of her dreams! It is the real gem of the dining room and the perfect finishing touch!!
The room is NOW complete!!
