Isn't she beautiful?! I decided to leave her completely AS IS. I may touch up some of the paint but I am not changing it much more than that. I love it's character. The mirror bottom and glass top were wrapped up when we bought it, so the mirror was a complete surprise when we got home. I really like it!
Once I found a new home for our new cart, I decided that I want to use it as a bar cart. It will be great for serving drinks of any kind. My mom has always had a specific place set up to serve drinks for when she entertains....I have always wanted a spot perfect for that, and now I do!
My wire garden cloche found a home on top of my large chalkboard slate. I also put my wine bottle holder (a $3 thrift store find) that I found a while back, down there to hold wine bottles for easy access.
The top shelf now holds my ice bucket, my new chalkboard wineglasses, my vintage mixer, and a galvanized bucket with bar tools.
Here are more pictures...
I love the wheels, they are so vintage...
I feel like something is missing but I can't put my finger on it! I think it will be perfect for serving drinks, it is located perpendicular to my buffet in our dining area, which will be perfect for entertaining. I think bar carts have a ton of character, I was lucky enough to find this one at a steal but they aren't always that affordable. So, if you find one at a good price, be sure and snatch it up!
