D.I.Y. Bar Cart

“Save them coins, SIS”!!!

I have a new DIY for you.

A Marble Bar Cart that can be used interchangeably as a place to store storage. While I do believe somethings should be bought, I also believe in doing somethings myself to recreate things exactly the way you want them.

So I’m here today to help you save them coins… SIS!! That’s my new phrase for right now.

I put my D.I.Y. Crown on and got to work. Click To Tweet It’s the summer time where cookouts, day parties and get-togethers are more rampant. I fell in love with having small get-togethers with close friends and family. I love a good cookout and small but LIT parties give me so much life. Maybe because I’m at the age of having these shindigs are maybe because I just like hosting parties.

I’ve been looking for a reasonable priced bar cart for a while now and of course it was a fail. So I put my D.I.Y. Crown on and got to work. I purchased a cart from Michaels for around $10-12 and got some marble contact paper and got to work.

Read below to find out how I made the Marble Bar Cart:

Materials:

  1. Michaels Bar Cart
  2. Krylon 14kt. Gold Spray Paint
  3. Krylon Primer Spray Paint
  4. Marble Contact Paper
  5. Smoothing Tool
  6. Plastic Drop Cloth
  7. Scissors

Procedures:

  1. I put the cart together just as the directions say on the box
  2. Wipe down the cart to get rid of any loose debris
  3. Remove the shelves (3) from the cart leaving just the body
  4. Spray 2 even coats of the Krylon primer spray paint (I waited 25 minutes between each application)
  5. Then I sprayed 3 even coats of the 14kt.Gold Krylon Spray paint (25 minutes apart)
  6. Layout contact paper and apply 1 shelve on top of the paper to measure. Measure extra to overlap to the backside of the shelf (it won’t be shown)
  7. Using the smoothing tool move from right to left to get all air bubbles out until you get the shelf fully covered
  8. Do this 2 more times to cover the last two shelves
  9. After the cart is finished drying replace the shelves to complete the bar cart
  10. You’re finished!!
  11. Accessorize with anything, it can be used as a bar cart or considered as multi-purpose cart to put miscellaneous things for storage
