DIY Beverage Cart --- or How to invite a Changing Table to a Party.

Forecast calls for Cool Breezes with a Good Chance for Cocktails by the Fire!
With a beverage cart your 'party' can go anywhere! 
If you want your guest to congregate on the patio, or perhaps by the fire . . . 
just roll your beverage cart out and fill it up with every thing a well-stocked party needs!

Our beverage cart wasn't always such a party girl.   I found my stable, reliable friend in a garage sale. 
She was once a hard-working Jenny Lind changing table; 
that is until she got her invitation to PARTY!

I gave her a pair of party shoes {a.k.a. casters} and
dressed her from head to toe in Annie Sloan's Duck Egg Blue. 

Accented her with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Versailles 
. . . simply by dry brushing and adding a swirly graphic on her top.  
Gave her a wax and a buff (kind of like a trip to the spa ;)

Now, she was feeling pretty, but also needed a little BLiNG . . . it IS a Party after all!
A little touch of Gilding Wax in King . . . 
. . . was all she needed to feel like a QUEEN!
I applied the gilding wax using a tiny paint brush, and boy does that stuff shine!  
Gorgeous!
Now she was dressed for the Party . . .

. . . so it was time to Accessorize with all our Cocktail Party Essentials.

I love how our martini glasses mimic her spindles. 

She was once sequestered to the nursery . . . now she is dressed and ready to join the party!

Thank you for joining me for her debutante party!  
This beauty is available at my 'shop' in the Vineyards Antique Mall and is ready to Party with You!
What's that?  Okay . . . one last curtain call ;)
