Before & After: A Sad Little Bar Cart Gets Beautified

Jenelle found this abandoned cart in her garage when she moved into her home over a year ago. Using one very key ingredient, she turned it into a brand new piece that she's proud to display in her new home.

She scuffed up the rusty chrome legs and battered yellow shelves with steel wool and then smartly used spray auto primer to provide a durable base for the next layer: hammered brass for the legs and Rust-Oleum London Grey Satin for the shelves.

Jenelle says:

The whole project took me less than two hours. The finished look is great, and we now have a place to display some of our favorite barware. Best of all, we were able to use something that would've otherwise been ignored or discarded!

Thank you Jenelle!
