Drink Cart

Happy 4th of July!!

I just love this time of year, the parades, fireworks and fun community events.

I love entertaining, especially for the 4th, but this year our back patio is not ready for guests so we will have a party later in the summer.

I found this great cart at a garage sale for $2! I was so excited when I saw it, just needed a little paint. I knew it would be perfect as a drink cart on the back patio.

Here is the before, not a pretty color:




I taped a zip lock bag over the wheels because I could not get them off.


Here is the after:





I used Valspar spray paint in indigo gloss, it is my new favorite color!

I just love how it turned out. I have been using it as a side table to my bench but it will work so great for a drink station when we are entertaining. So for around $7 I have a great outdoor drink cart. I just love garage saleing, you never know what you are going to find. Have you found any treasures at garage sales lately?

Have a wonderful 4th of July!!

  9. The cart is absolutely adorable. I can't believe you found it for such a steal. I discovered your blog while googling " Valspar indigo gloss" tonight. I've got some powder-coated stools we use at our kitchen island that came in a dull shade of blue. Right now it's like the country blue color from the 1980s/90s and I'd like it to be more vibrant. I read about Valspar's indigo color a couple other places and it looks like it might be just the right color. I just hope it will stand up to use as an every day stool that gets sit upon and feet put on the rungs!
