With entertaining season upon us, what’s a more fitting project than a versatile little bar cart? A sturdy — but rather ugly — thrift store find, this little microwave cart gets to live on with an (arguably more fun) second life.

The writer at She’s No Martha had a hankering for a sleek little cocktail station, and she dressed up her $20 find with some white paint and some handles on the sides. With a little styling, she now has a beautiful, functional piece that didn’t break the bank — and she also has an excuse to throw a party (or at least declare it to be “cocktail hour” whenever the mood strikes!).
