Anyway...back to my original topic...I chose to do the beverage cart as my Pinterest Challenge. Here was the inspiration picture that I chose from Pinterest:
Here is what the cart looked like when I took it from my parents' house. This is after I swept major cobwebs and nastiness off of it just to put it in my car. It had major rust on the bottom shelf.
All projects seem to go more smoothly when you have a cute 7 year-old helper in her PJ's, don't you think?
I ended up taking the cart apart so that I didn't have to tape or try to cover the chrome handles and sides. I want this cart to primarily go on our enclosed back porch (see recent post on that project here)
and I wanted it a fun, punchy color, so I decided to go with this bold red.
I love that the cart is on wheels. I plan on using it to put drinks on when we have company, plants on when we don't , and everything in between. I have never had a cart before, so who knows? Eventually it may turn into a mobile office. :)
Here it is painted and put back together:
And for right now, I decided to embrace the season and make it a fun cart to go on the porch.
I plan to use it this weekend to hold all kinds of fun for Riley's birthday party. I can't wait to post some pictures of that soon. I have never hosted a kids birthday party at my house before, so we'll see.
Be sure to stop back soon to see my painted pottery, stenciled wall, and birthday shenanigans.
Also, make sure you check out not only my Pinterest Challenge beverage cart, but the tons of other inspirations here.
