I spotted a little black metal two tiered rolling rack of sorts last weekend at a thrift store for $9. While others saw a wobbly piece missing it's shelves, I immediately saw a bar cart. I took it home and gave it a once over with some gold spray paint just to make sure my vision wasn't blurry. It is going to be as fantastic as I thought it would be. I still need to finish painting and build shelves.
The big decisions:
Paint: gold or white
Shelves: Glass or Mirror or wood shelves
Here is where we are now. I'm loving the gold, although I ran out of spray paint and need to pick up another can. I would also love to find an acrylic tray to place on top but that size might be wishful thinking. I'm also thinking mirror on the top shelf and glass on the bottom two might be nice. Thoughts?
You can see the true before below. Even then it was calling my name. The lines, size, and shape are all perfect. I could see even putting this in our bedroom or my office upstairs as a coffee bar station instead of using it as an actual alcohol bar. Our house has really squeaky stairs and I've thought about how nice it would be to make coffee upstairs before the kids get up. This might be my chance to make that happen!
I've got lots of inspiration below. It's really just a matter of choosing color and shelf material. Which way do you think I should go? Do you have a bar cart in your house?
So much goodness. Now I want a drink!
