As a DIYer you know inspiration can strike anywhere. Well, the idea for this DIY bar cart started in an aisle at Target! Yup, I saw this bar cart at Target… I liked the overall design, but thought my DIY bar cart would look a little different.

My thought was to ditch the white plastic-look tray. Instead, my bar cart would feature a vintage industrial look, a stained wood tray accented with aged metal straps.

Wouldn’t this DIY bar cart be a hit at your next party? Load the tray up with your favorite beverages and carry it where it needs to go.

To make the bar cart tray, I first cut the sides and openings for the handles.

Then I attached the sides to the tray bottom, which is a 1/2" piece of plywood.

Next I cut the legs and rails for the cart and attached them using wood glue and pocket screws.

Then I primed the legs and painted them black. While the paint was drying I stained the wood tray.
