Turn a $2 Metal Cart Into a Fun Beverage Cart

With some sand paper, spray paint and a little elbow grease, this Beverage Cart Makeover adds a whole new look to the deck.
Last Summer, we went to a couple auctions, we really didn’t buy too much, but it’s always fun to go and see what you can find for not a lot of money. Well, we happened to see this metal cart and I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do with it, I simply couldn’t pass it up, it was only $2.
It was in really bad shape. There was rust, but most of all it was just really dirty and greasy after sitting in someone’s garage.
It was important to keep our budget down when we did the project, after all, we didn’t pay a lot for the beverage cart and we weren’t quite sure how it would turn out. So the first step was to clean it up – wash it off and give it a good scrub, we used Mr. Clean Outdoor Cleaner to remove the grease and dirt. Then it was time to tackle the rust.
Come on over and see the final transformation on the blog. Link below.
