Upcycle an Old Bookcase into a Bar Cart
Time to expand your library? Repurpose your old bookcase and get to celebrating!
'Tis the season for company and cocktails, and that calls for a festive spot to mix libations. We turned a small bookcase into the drinks station shown here in a few steps. After coating it with glossy red paint—Benjamin Moore's Tomato Red—we installed a rack for stemware and a towel bar so that spill relief is never far (about $13 and $11 each; amazon.com). Adding casters (about $6 for two; homedepot.com) allows for wheeling the party into any room. Let the good times roll!
