Fabulous Vintage Beverage Cart Makeover

Good Monday morning to you all! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We had a great time at the beach. The weather was wonderful and we could sit out on the beach and just relax. The only thing missing was Lauren :(. Unfortunately she had to work and we had made the reservations long ago. We will definitely plan better next time!

I bought this vintage beverage cart a few weeks ago at a yard sale. I paid $10 for it which I thought was a great price. Each shelf even comes off to use as a tray.

But it was going to need some sprucing up! I decided to keep the gold on the bars, but would paint the trays to match the rest of my patio furniture.

First I taped off all the parts I didn’t want gold, like the wheels and the bar across the middle of the top tray.

The gold paint I had on hand is ancient, but I decided to give it a try, rather than buy more. It still worked just fine!

Next I painted the trays (sorry no pics! I was too anxious to get it done!). I used Rustoleum Spray Paint in Lagoon. I also had it on hand from Haley’s bench project.

Here is the finished product! I love how this turned out!

A little bit retro, a little bit modern, in my favorite colors and practical too!

Haley picked out some of her favorite snacks to add to the tray.

I think they are Ezzy’s favorite too!

Sunshine and Blessings

    Love the finished result!
    Want to know if you did any prep because of the ‘spots’, especially on the top tray. Are those rust, stains, etc.?

    Gorgeous transformation! And such a cool cart! I love that the shelves pull out and act as trays. Thanks so much for sharing at the Merry Monday Link Party! We can’t wait to see what you’ve got for us this week! :0)
