Tattooed Martha’s Bar Cart Makeover

Tattooed Martha - Bar Cart Makeover (13)

I’m so happy to finally be able to share this with you all! I picked up this tea cart from Goodwill almost a year ago and finally got it revamped last week. A little spray paint and a little patience resulted in this bright and funky new bar that was the much needed pop of color we needed in our space!

Supplies:

Tea cart/bar cart

Screwdriver

Spray paint

Kyrlon clear coat

Take apart what you can on your cart or tape off specific pieces if you’re painting more than one color. Spray 1-2 coats of paint, waiting about 30 minutes in between each coat, in a well-ventilated area.

When pieces are completely dry, spray them with 1-2 coats of clear coat. When completely dry, put the cart back together, stock it with booze, glasses, and whatever else and you’re done!

    I LOVE THIS! My husband and I have been looking for the perfect bar cart forever and haven’t found one yet. I’ll keep this in mind for when we do find something!

    Also, I just wanted to say Best Wishes on your wedding! I feel kind of weird being “excited” about your wedding, but I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and I feel kind of like I know you, so I’m very excited for you and can’t wait to see all the photos!
