For years I have been obsessed with transforming an old AV cart into a funky, rolling bar cart. These are some of the pictures I have had tucked away for inspiration.

On a recent garage-saleing excursion, my dreams got a little closer to reality. I picked up this baby for a mere $10 and the ideas started flowing.
It took many, many coats to cover this baby. I started with Valspar Outdoor Spray Paint. It was awful, Both cans were hard to spray and the nozzle would spit out paint, leaving little paint dots all over. So I switched to Rustoleum and it was so much better. Smoother spray, even coating and no splatter.
It has been surface-of-the-sun-hot here for the last two weeks, so unfortunately I wasn't able to use it when I had my girlfriends in town. Hopefully we can have the neighbors over soon and make full use of it as a bar. Lemonade is sweet, but a vodka lemonade on a hot summer evening is sweeter.
I love it!
