Easy, inexpensive bar cart hack

We recently put in a new deck on the back of the house. The difference in the amount of time we spend out there is amazing. I wanted some sort of a bar on the deck for entertaining and remembered seeing a potting bench someone had converted to a bar on Pinterest.

I walked into World Market a few days later and found the perfect potting bench 1/2 off! It came in this natural and a grey wash. I bought the grey.

I added a wine rack I found on Amazon, a towel holder I had left over from a bathroom project and a bottle opener (also from amazon). I painted the little plastic tub a shade of teal for a pop of color (it’s perfect for ice). I think it’s just darling.


Project took maybe an hour and a half including assembly! Looking forward to outdoor entertaining!
