bar cart

For a while I've wanted a bar cart, maybe because of the Madman craze or my obsession with retro items. I kept my eyes open on craigslist and finally found a white metal, retro looking bar cart. The lady who sold it to us said she bought it in a storage auction and if she had a pool she would have kept it. For fifty dollars, I was satisfied that I got a pretty good deal. I thought it would be a great fit to our home after some restoration. And so we went to work.

I picked lime green spray paint to match most of our kitchen and dining room decor. I love how that color pops.  

The bar cart looked to have all original parts. Most of the screws were rusted, especially the ones holding the trays and the ones holding the wheels together. The rusted screws made it a pain to get the wheels off (the wheels didn't really work so we needed to replace them). We didn't have the powerful drill needed to drill out the rusted screws, which added to our difficulty. Luckily, a very handy friend brought his drill over to help remove the rusted screws and we were able to replace the wheels with new ones. 

I bought the fabric on a shopping trip in Philly with Mikes's Mom. It worked perfectly for this project as the colors match well with the lime. I pre-cut the fabric to make sure it covered the trays. Then I sprayed the trays with adhesive spray to glue the fabric on. After the glue dried I added scotch-guard to protect the fabric from any future spills. 

Done! We gave it a home next to the dining room table and stocked it with our favorite liquors.
