Despite its peeling handles and faux wood shelves, Shannon had plans for this thrift store bar cart. With a little love and crafty touches, it now shines:
Besides polishing the brass, she painted and stenciled the faux wood, and wrapped the peeling handles with patterned tape.
Before the holidays I found a beat up little bar cart at a local thrift store. It was a little grimy and had lost its luster. Not to mention the ugly faux wood shelves and peeling handle grips. But with a little paint, patterned masking tape and some Brasso, that neglected little bar cart became a modern focal point. Filled with glass and glam it now sits proudly in our dining room.

Thank you, Shannon!
