♥ Chevron Bar Cart

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

I love to entertain at my home and especially enjoy throwing a good cocktail party.  Lately, I've been looking for a particularly polished bar cart but haven't found any online that don't cost an arm and leg.  Lucky for me, my parents cleaned out their garage and I found this office utility cart.  I decided to paint it with a bold orange color, I then added the white chevron stripes for a cool mod aesthetic look.
Next on the agenda...stocking this cart with glassware, chic coasters, and fancy liquor.  Stay tuned!

You did such a great job with this. I will now think twice before I pass up a fixer upper at the thrift store, I can turn it into something stunning instead :-)
