Bar cart DIY for less than $70!

I was generally checking my emails when I happened to come across this gorgeous DIY bar cart. It was either featured in an Apartment Therapy or Bloglovin’ round up list. I cannot remember the article, but it had something to do with transitioning from a dorm room to an “adult” apartment. Anyways, this DIY Marble & Gold Bar Cart from the belle vie blog was featured.

I had received my contact paper a week before my spray paint arrived in the mail. I had time to complete the most annoying part of this DIY over a couple days. While the spray paint is drying, you could tackle the contact paper portion. Contact paper sucks! There are so many air bubbles in it after I took a lot of time trying to make sure I got out all the bubbles. It was time consuming, but not too stressful and looks great!

Tip: I would suggest to spray paint the cart parts before assembling it, then do touch ups after it is build. It was rough getting it together and I had several scratches in the paint. And by rough I mean that the pieces were rubbing against the floor while I was trying to screw the bolts in place while also trying to keep the bottom shelf upright (while the cart being on its side).

In the tutorial I followed, she didn’t use the drawer. While hers turned out a little fancier, I like the storage space that the drawer provides. It houses all the bar tools, bottle openers and wine stoppers. It offers everything to be hidden out of sight. I don’t have any cute jars besides the mason jar glasses yet, but I think it is cute without the clutter!

    Lately I’ve been so attracted to anything with marble. I’ve also been looking for a little cart to put all of my food photography things on. I’m thinking I may have to give this project a shot (or hint to my handy hubby). Thank-you for the inspiration!

    I can’t believe you made this – I was completely in love with it when the pic first popped up and thought it was going to cost an extortionate amount of money amazed it’s IKEA and some marble paper! Fanstastic

    This is so good. I wouldn’t have thought of this ever. I have used similar contact paper but I like that marble finish and guess what, hubby loves DIY and the fact that he has been hunting for a bar table, he might like this .
