I searched for an old cart that I could transform into a bar cart for quite some time. I had even visited this Goodwill a few times before. So, could you imagine my excitement when I walked in and found the perfect cart. I dragged that thing all over the store with me because I refused to let it out of my site 😂🙈.

 

Here I’m sharing the transformation. Hope you enjoy.

I clean off any stickers

I used Rust-oleum Metallic spray paint in Gold. By far the best gold spray paint in my opinion.

I spray painted all pieces in gold, including wheels, bolts.

Making sure to tape the bottom of the wheels befor spray paitning.

  • These kinds of things are so great if you’re living in a small flat with no storage. I’ve meaning to buy one, but I think I’ll go thrifting instead.
