DIY Tales: Rustic Vintage Rolling Bar Cart
By Country Design Home on Feb 12, 2014
DIY Tutorial- Rescuing and Restoring and Reloving an old cabinet into a Rustic Rolling Bar Cart.
The vendor let it go for cheap because he didn’t want to load it back into his car. It was next up on my DIM (Do It Myself) list this past weekend, so I finally had to decide out what to actually do with it. The inside writing indicates that it was removed from an old hardware store in Haverhill,
so my first instinct was to return it to its former nuts and bolts glory. But it really is too awesome to be hidden away in a workshop or storeroom, so now it’s a rolling bar cart! Better to be holding Jack Daniels than jackhammers, am I right?
3. No painting necessary, pretty awesome the way it is with all of the old chipped and splattered paint. But I did matte poly the inside to seal up any odors or dust.
You simply flip the top over, attach one half of the L to that, then place it onto the cupboard and screw it into place, for a nice secure surface.
7. The hardware we had in some bins in the barn. Who knows where this stuff comes from?! But whenever I seem to be looking for something specific, it magically appears. In this case, a towel hook for one side…
I’m really happy with the final results. Looks great in my country styled kitchen! Stayed tuned for more exciting junque transformations. In the meantime, its Monday, so make it a marvelous, magnificent, magical one. Susanblog comments powered by Disqus
