Trash to Treasure Party Cart! #makeover


I love repurposing old stuff - just about anything will do! It gives me a good challenge and also provides me with unique furnishings and decor. I spied this broken down cart at Goodwill (still sitting in the back even) and had to have it. It was beat up and a bit over my typically goodwill hunting price point, but it called to me...I had to have it...and so I did. And then I repaired and painted it. Now it is used all the time...indoors and outdoors, as a serving cart and a beverage cart.
The finished cart, complete with a chalkboard top!

Oh this cart was a busted mess...but not for long!

Happy Hour!

I added a chalkboard top. This works so well when I am having a party with a specialty drink - I just jot down the recipe and supply the ingredients and everyone can help themselves as the night goes along.
