I'm showing you how to transform a boring utility cart into a chic bar cart to give your space some color and personality.
We go through the how-to step by step and then I share how I styled my DIY bar cart for an effortlessly chic look.
DIY BAR CART TRANSFORMATION
Styled bar carts are super trendy right now. Its easy to see why — they're a functional accent piece which is basically what dreams are made of.
Bar carts are efficient in small spaces and can add personality and color to your room.
If you've shopped for a bar cart, you know they can get pricey fast if you're going for something unique.
This DIY helps you transform a boring utility cart into a super chic bar cart for well under $50.
You can customize it with spray paint colors and your own design on the inserts for the shelves. These are super easy and inexpensive to swap out seasonally or if you're craving a color change.
