Beverage Cart Reveal

We finished the beverage cart!  It turned out great and I actually like the color!  So many times we paint these and then I don't like the color.  It can get frustrating!  This is the cart before.....
Remember when I took you on a tour of Hunter's barn?  This cart was also in there.  Hunter used a grinder to take the rust off, took it apart, primed and painted it for me.
We used purchased the primer and spray paint from Home Depot.  They have such a good selection of colors.
Here's my tiki hut beverage dispenser.  A great yard sale find for $5!
Isn't it cute?  I think it originally came from Target.
Since I've got tiki hut's on the mind, I think I'll do a post later in the week showing how my husband built our tiki hut.  If you're thinking of getting your own beverage cart, check out my earlier post.  I shared some very creative ideas I found.

I would love it if you would follow me.  Leave me a message and I'll follow you back!
