Bar Cart Makeover - Gray and White Stripes

Coming Soon
 
To a Patio near You...
 
ICE COLD DRINKS
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
 
So when I found this bar cart
 
 
 
at the thrift store
 
I knew it would be
a fun summer makeover.
 
 
First some Early American Stain
 
 
 
 
Then some sundrenched gray...
 
 
 
 
Dry Brush White.
 
 
 
 
Tape off stripes and add more white.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Use an angle brush to add black edges to the stripes.
 
 
 
 
 
Transfer pencil line lettering.
 
I used Pottery Barn Font at size 200.
 
Fill in with black.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Pin It!
 
Refreshing, right?
 
Flea Markets are starting here!
 
Time to find junk treasures
 
that need a new do.
 
Happy junking, friends!

That's awesome Deb! We have a similar piece out on our back porch that's already dark brown. It may be getting a makeover soon now that I've seen your post. I love how you alternated the colors across the top. It's top notch, as per your usual. Hope you're having a great weekend. :)
