Best of Salvage 2014 #7 Retro Bar Cart

I noticed more and more bar carts online and in magazines so I thought it would be fun to try and make one out of a salvaged item. I found this old cart at a rummage sale for $5. The rollers on the cart were in bad shape so I went to the local hardware store and got replacements for $15. I painted the table a shiny black enamel paint to cover all the brown and purple paint from its days at a summer camp.

We already had an IKEA cutting board that I wasn’t using so I repurposed it for the top which fit perfectly. I found the silver tray for $4.99 at a thrift store. The bar supplies we already had on hand.

I would grade this salvage project an A for $25 cost and overall appeal.
