I suddenly have a small obsession…for painted rolling carts, aka garden carts or tea carts. These are showing up all over the webs as crafty types give new life to an old cart by adding a splash of paint and turning it into a rolling bar display. Perhaps I’m so obsessed because I actually have an old cart sitting outside, as I type. It is just waiting for me to get a can of Rustoleum paint and turn it into something wonderful.
I can’t decide if I would rather go with a classic white for a modern or shabby chic look, or metallic gold for a 40’s glam look. As I decide, here are some of my favorite inspiring photos…
- Top: I love the bamboo look of the carts especially combined with the gold paint. If feels so “old Hollywood Glam.”
- Bottom: The metal carts are also pretty fab and look great painted white or another vibrant color. These could work in a modern setting or a shabby chic design.
- The idea of setting up a temporary bar on these, either inside or out, is enough to make me want to plan a whole party around it! Of course other snacks look equally cool served on them too .
What do think about these carts? Do you have an old one you can bring back to life with paint?
