Dining Room Upgrade, Pt. 2: The Bar Cart

January 27, 2013


This upgrade is far less technical than the last. Just a little painter’s tape, some black paint, and a whoooooole lotta booze, and my old microwave cart became a mobile cocktail station (Lubrication Station? Inebriation Station? No?)

Not sure if you remember seeing the vintage cart that I bought on Craigslist. Here is the before from  a post a while back when I made the coffee mug organizer (which now is in my closet acting as a purse hanger). It was a little bit lifeless and sad:


Poor little cart. I am not sure this powder blue did it much justice. I wanted something a little more dramatic for my dining room, so I went with a matte black. The paint is so matte, in fact, that it almost looks like chalkboard paint. And I love it.


I have a feeling this stash might be depleted when two of my bff’s, Grace and Lindsey come to visit next weekend. Pray for us. And my bar cart.

These chairs were originally school chairs made in the late 50’s or early 60’s. I kind of love that this piece of gum is likely older than I am. And don’t worry, I won’t remove it 😉

I’ll be back tomorrow with something really fun. As always. Right???

    This is GREAT! And I really appreciate the detail, and also the inclusion of the most important DIY tool: Booze. : )
