Bar Cart DIY

Inspired by the influx of bar cart makeovers, I set out to find my very own cart to makeover.  I put some feelers out and found a perfect medical cart from the early 1900s from Portland Flea For all.

I used a hammered copper Rust-Oleum for the whole cart- it took about three cans, but I love the effect.  I’m still working on a cleaner arrangement for the items on it, but this is what I have so far.

Perfect for holiday entertaining!

I just got these three prints for the bar area as well from Evelyn Henson on etsy.

Inspired to do your own?  Check out your local flea market or find a finished one on etsy.

Enjoy!

About Lauren Lear

Virginian to Mainiac, I moved to Maine for a photo internship with Aurora Photos and stayed because I met the man I would marry after winking at him on Match.com. My photo business, Lola Studios, is where I pursue my love of fantasy photography using makeup and props to create alternate realities for my clients. I started this blog a little over a year ago to share the wedding prep, diy, food, and family experiences that I had. To bring you up to speed, my husband Alex and I bought a home, got married, went on our honeymoon, hosted Thanksgiving and Christmas back to back (never again ;) ), I turned 30 (never again :( ), we went to London to celebrate our first married year, and we got a puppy, Walter! That’s about it! I hope you’ll join me to see what unfolds next. Enjoy!
