I’m thrilled that bar carts are back in vogue. I have always loved them. There is something so chic and “James Bond” about them!
These are just some of the paint chips on the ho-hum wood.
I really did not know where to begin! I’ve only ever Mod Podged one other thing in my whole life!

I decided the bottom shelf would be my “practice piece”. Thank goodness! I made a few mistakes on the shelf and overlapped some mosaic paint chips to cover them up!
For the top shelf I decided to not worry about some tiny hairline gaps in the mosaics. Because most of the mosaic will be covered up with bar gear and bottles.
I had no real method of making the pattern… I just cut the chips with a Fisker’s cutter and ruler, Mod Podged the back of the chips and pressed them down of the shelf next to one another.
When all the chips were laid down I used a small foam roller and painted 2 thin coats of Mod Podge over the entire top of each shelf, making sure the surfaces were dry between coats.
I think the tops of the shelves have an abalone look. Too bad most of it will be covered up with bar paraphernalia!
This bar cart cost nothing for me to makeover… excluding the guilty buy of sample paint, Frog Tape and chalkboard paint!
What could you cover with paint chips?
Stop back tomorrow when I’ll share my favorite way to keep cozy this winter!
