Vintage Bar Cart Re-Do


I found an old cart at the Flea Market this week and knew it cold be really cute.  When I got it home I took it apart ( I forgot to take a picture before I took it apart).
Before:
The tray parts of the cart were an ugly brown to me so I spray painted them a blue that reminded me of vintage things from the 50s.  I liked the rusty metal frame of the cart so I kept it that way.

I screwed the trays back on and now I love the cart.





Good Rust



Great old wheels




Tulips from Easter 













So cute in my opinion!

  7. I always forget those "before" pictures, too. Just get excited to get going, I think. I love the color. I have one that I think should be yellow.
