Looky What I Found ~ Patio Serving Cart

While out driving around looking for garage sales this past Saturday, I found this serving cart on the front lawn of some one's home with a "Free" sign on it. The shape is pretty cool and the fact that is has glass shelves makes the cart seem less heavy so I can place it anywhere on my back porch.

All I did was sand down the spots where it had occasional rust, then I wiped the whole thing down and let it dry completely before spray painting it black.

So now I have a new bar area for cocktail parties on the patio! And the best part is that since it was a freebie the only cost to me was less than the price of one can of RustOleum spray paint.

Hey and how does my sale Walmart plastic ware look on the newly painted serving cart?

Love it!!


  1. what a fantastic job! It just goes to show, it's all in the execution and you did a fabulous job! I can't believe it was free and none of the glass was broken.
