Dave and I don’t drink very often, but I wanted to make sure that we at least had a set of wine glasses in the event that we had company and wanted to drink. I also had an antique cabinet that was left to me by our good family friend, Lauree, and was the perfect size for this space in our open space living/dining/kitchen area to make into a bar cart.
This project was pretty simple. First, I took a piece of leftover counter top and cut it to size. I faced the raw edges with wood grain contact paper in a similar color, as actually counter top edge banding was expensive and I was trying to keep costs low with this project. I used mod podge to secure the contact paper, as the adhesive that came on the back wasn’t sticking well to the raw edge of the board.
Once the contact paper dried, I applied decorative copper tone corners, and Dave was kind enough to screw the casters to the bottom of the board. I cleaned and applied a wax sealer to the cabinet, screwed on some wrought iron handles to it, and then set the cabinet onto its new moveable plinth. The antique bar cart was born!
