Is it just me or has May zipped by? I can’t believe it’s already the final week of the OUTDOOR EXTRAVAGANZA! Ready for tomorrow’s link party? I can’t wait to see all your outdoor projects!
Today, it’s all about Outdoor Paint & Build-it Projects. I’m lovin’ my new-ish summer bar cart!
Almost since the day we moved into this house, I’ve wanted an outdoor bar cart. Summer is when we entertain the most and, between the food, drinks and serve ware, we never seem to have enough storage room.
Bar carts take up very little space, can be wheeled around with little effort, and their stacked surfaces mean double the capacity. And they’re just so darn fun to look at too!
Being from Canada, our summers are gorgeous, but they’re way too short. I simply cannot justify spending a bunch of money on outdoor furniture when it sits in storage more than half the year.
So, whenever I come across items at Value Village that can be repurposed as outdoor furniture, I jump at the chance.
in their right mind walk right past secondhand Ikea baby change tables at the thrift shop. Not me. I snagged one right away.
(That could start some good rumours, right? A little something to get the neighbours talking!)
I saw the makings of a DIY bar cart. See the two levels with a tray-like surface? Simply cut off the legs, add some casters and spray paint the whole thing white.
Next week, I’ll share a few more details of the transformation.
**Update: get the details on how I made over this baby change table in to an outdoor bar cart.
Until then, take a closer look at what I’m serving up today….
Happy Hour starts at 5 o’clock sharp!
Need a bottle opener? No problem.
Take a straw if you’d like.
I wonder who our first guests will be? Did I mention I love summer outdoor entertaining?
