Target Bar Cart Hack


I come to you today with the most simple, and I mean simple diy bar cart ever. It's so easy I am kind of laughing at myself for posting this however, I love it so much that I have to share it with you guys. Well let me start with I adored Target when they were here in Canada and one of my favourite things that I scored right before they packed up and left us (tear) was the Threshold Bar cart. I was lusting after it for awhile and it is seriously beautiful and such a great accent piece. 



There are lots of different versions of the cart and the one that I have is brass with a glass top shelf and a wooden lower shelf. I love the airiness the glass top gives and although I never minded the bottom wooden shelf, I love white & loved the idea of brightening up it up. However, I didn't want to go the permanent route of painting it in case I ever changed my mind. Insert marble contact paper. Oh my gosh guys I'm in love. So you know when your shopping and you find a sweater that you love and you buy it in every colour because it's just that perfect? Well it is taking everything inside me, literally to not marble contact paper everything in my entire house. 



This project was so simple I just measured my bottom shelf and then cut out the contact paper, peeled off the back and stuck it on. It's like applying a giant screen protector on your phone, you need to smooth it out as you go but oh my, it's worth it. It instantly brightened up the whole cart and really gave it a glam feel. And the best part is it's easily removable so if I want to go back to the wood shelf, no big deal just peel off the paper and voila! I love using pieces in unconventional ways so here I have the bar cart styled with some simple decor in my family room (which is where I love it). I may have also used the marble contact paper on another project ( I couldn't use it on just one thing) which I am planning on sharing with you guys soon so stay tuned. I hope your all having a great day.

Kind thoughts,

Lauren Elizabeth

  2. Go Carts aren't just built for speed; they should also be built to last. Building a strong Go Cart frame can give one a stronger edge in any race. More Information
