Well, I did it. I had my first experience taking hard rubbish from someone's front yard. Maybe it had something to do with the amount of stuff that was taken from the front of my place (including a questionable old couch and an equally ratty carpet), but I did it. In broad daylight.
Why was it so awkward? From my point of view, everything placed on my front verge is fair game. But I summoned my new mindful, recycling attitude, and bucked up the courage and toted my spoils home. In broad daylight. While still walking the dog.
I've been looking for a bar cart for a while, but also not willing to pay the price. They're so in right now, and as such, have a hefty price tag.
So, when I saw this old children's tool chest sitting on the kerb, a light went off in my brain.
The rest was easy. I stripped down all the warped wood and then painted the chest with black spray paint. I found some metal 'L' shaped pegs at Bunning's and went to town with some screws.
Then I got some gold paint and painted the surface of the door knobs and screwed on some brass corners, also available from Bunnings.
I didn't replace the wood on the top of the chest, opting to secure the draws instead and make a depression for all the lovely bottles to sit in.
These kind of tool chests are available from any toy store, so you can totally do it yourself!
