I am so giddy about the recent revitalization of bar carts in the modern home. They are a great compromise between classy & fun, and in my opinion, the perfect way to add some personality to your dining or living room.
Ever since we moved into our townhouse over a year ago, I’ve been talking about how I’m going to update an old bookshelf into a bar cart, but I’ve never made the jump. After oggling over bar cart inspiration for too long to admit, I’m finally ready to bite the bullet & make some moves.
To start out, I want to share my inspiration (& y’all-there was a LOT to choose from!)
The details I love most are a combination of shine (preferably gold) and bright details. The problem with my inspiration is that they are all actual bar cars, whereas I am revamping a bookshelf. I’d ideally like to find a way to paint the wood gold, but I have never been able to find a good gold paint for wood.
Do y’all have any ideas? Do you have a bar cart in your home?
