I accidentally published this post last Wednesday for a little less than hour because I’m a ditz. My apologies!! TODAY, I’d like to share a quick, easy and inexpensive DIY Ikea Bar Cart Hack.
You may have caught a glimpse of this recent addition to our apartment here. Allow me to explain myself. I actually have a bar, seen on our apartment tour, and I’ve also styled a tray table into a bar here. I have a feeling I’m acting as if I’m cocktailing much more than I actually am…but it’s just the decorative bar cart craze that I’ve fallen into!
I was in Ikea several weeks ago and stumbled across this basic kitchen cart for only $25. We have a very small kitchen in our apartment and I thought this cart would be a great way to store decorative glasses and pitchers. I also loved this one, but at only $25 I couldn’t pass this baby up.
Before I put it together, I spray painted all of the hardware and nails gold. I put sprayed about three coats, letting each one dry about 20 minutes before spraying again.
I’m still using my current bar for our wine and liquor, this one is mainly for our glasses, pitchers and some cute decorative things. Not a necessary addition to our apartment…but like I said, it was a fun $25 project and I was still unemployed at the time with some extra crafting time on my hands!
