Easy updates March 01, 2015 10:24
One of the easiest update you can do in your own home is repurposing a piece of furniture you already own. This is a custom made coffee cart from Jute Home Company that I have been loving as my coffee station for the past three months.
It has great texture thanks to the reclaimed barn wood from a century old barn in neighboring North Dakota. The metal L posts and casters make piece modern and very versatile.
While this piece has been great as a coffee cart, the Minnesota winter has been dragging on and I felt like I needed a mini facelift for my home. Instead purchasing a whole new piece of furniture, I decided to try this awesome cart in a different location. The results were exactly what I hoped for!
By moving the piece into my dining room, it now becomes a welcoming bar cart for entertaining. I styled it with my favorite glassware and some Copper Moscow Mule mugs, as well as a few bottles of wine and a great chrome beverage bucket. The best part about this makeover? It cost $0!
Many people think that reclaimed wood doesn't fit into their home. It all depends on how it is styled. This item went from "old barn" to "rustic luxe" thanks to the perfect styling. The shiny pieces and mixed metals make this modern perfection.
What do you think of my bar/coffee cart transformation? Do you have a piece of furniture in your home that could have a new life with a little restyle?
