Bar Cart DIY

A retro Salton Hot Table is rescued from oblivion—returned to a life of purposeful, colourful service.

Dabble Post

MATERIALS REQUIRED
Serving or bar cart (aka, a good find)
2 Colours of Spray Paint – Outdoor/Indoor – Krylon – gloss
Mod Podge
Paint Brush
Wrapping Paper

CURBSIDE CLASSIC
Always pay attention to the road ahead, but keep an eye on the curb for treasures that may be abandoned.

OLD TO GOLD
Using metallic gold Krylon spray paint, evenly coat all exposed metal parts, including the wheels and black rubber tires. Paint the rest of the cart in a contrasting colour.

MOD REVIVAL
Mod Podge is a gift to DIY’ers who long to turn objects into decoupage treasures. Select a decorative wrapping paper and cut to fit the required areas. Use a paintbrush to coat the bottom of the tray and place wrapping paper on its surface. Smooth out any bubbles with your hands and apply another coat of the Mod Podge over wrapping paper to seal the surface. Let dry overnight.

Dabble Savvy: Poke holes in air bubbles with a needle, smooth with a paintbrush.
