This is how I made over my DIY Multipurpose Bar Cart from a thrifted bar cart. I have used it for many different occasions, but mainly, I just love the look of a bar cart for home decor.
If you like looking at home decor, you know that bar carts are everywhere! I feel like a bar cart makes your home look elegant. The funny thing is that my husband and I are not big drinkers. Almost all of the alcohol I buy is to cook with. My husband has alcoholism in his family, so he will not drink a drop of alcohol.
So who says you have to use a bar cart for a bar? I love to entertain, and anyone who has been to my house will tell you that I will always have a huge spread of food. I serve so much food that I really need more counter space, and I got to thinking that a bar cart on wheels would be the answer to my problem.
I had been telling my Mother to help me find a bar cart while we were out thrifting. One day, I went out to my garage to get some cement to use for a project, and I realized that the bags of cement were sitting on an old bar cart, and it had wheels! See, you should always shop your house and your garage first.
I gave the cart a good cleaning, and sprayed the cart with paint.
I purchased these cork rounds a few months ago for a project, but I ended up not using them.
I knew that my DIY multipurpose bar cart would sometimes be used for a coffee bar, so I need something to protect the cart top from heat. I laid the corks on top of my bar cart, but I did not glue them down. I want to be able to remove them if I need to clean the top of the cart.
I used it for a hot chocolate and coffee bar at our neighborhood Christmas party.
I used the cart for a graduation party and served iced tea and lemonade on the cart.
This multipurpose bar cart does not only look beautiful in my house, it serves many purposes besides a bar.
