"HAPPY HOUR" Rolling Bar cart


So, once again at my local Goodwill, I spotted this little number.
She is what I remember from a kid as being a rolling tea cart.
My mom, had a fancier one that she put her fancy tea cups on.......
that we never drank out of.


So when I saw this one, I decided it needed a little change up...



SOOOOO I got out my new 18th anniversary present....
EEEEEEKK!! so excited.


This is my
"are you feeling lucky, punk" look...:)



and I got to spraying....





and spraying.......I loved the finish on this..
and the paint was in the oops bin for only 2 bucks...HA!!!



Then I went over to the GRAPHICS FAIRY,
and printed off her corkscrew graphic.
Then I typed out "happy hour" on a piece of
paper and enlarged it.
I used transfer paper and got to painting.


Didn't it turn out great!!



I went and got my VINTAGE bar stuff and it works perfect.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day.

That is great, well done. This is the second time I have seen one of these done up, I actually saw one in a charity/thrift shop and was tempted to get it and do it up, unfortunately I don't really have the space! Saw you on linky party and I am now google friend and pinterest following you. Please pop by, I would love it if you followed me too, Karima x www.karimascrafts.com

Thanks so much everyone!! If I don't respond right away its because we are camping and have to walk 1/2 mile to get to a computer connection...:)

Amanda said...

The cart looks wonderful! I definitely need a 'happy hour' cart, although I'm sure the kiddos would end up using it to wheel their toys from room to room!

Great graphic work, the corkscrew is just perfect!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

That looks great! I love it! The corkscrew was such a great image to use, too.

Maria Matter said...
