Bar Cart Print & Spray Painting a Picture Mat

We recently switched up a few things in our dining room, which included moving our vintage bar cart out of the niche into a more visible space. It is such a unique piece that we love (and got for a steal) and we wanted it to be more inviting for guests to come in and pour a drink.

I also wanted to lean a print with a fun quote on the cart. I came across this saying that I love…

I quickly made this print on my Mac and printed it out on heavy card stock from our home printer.

I have a stash hoard of frames in my basement from other projects, so I grabbed a white frame with a white mat. I really wanted a black mat to surround this new print, so I busted out some spray paint to see if that would work. Two coats of spray paint later, I had a black mat. I had everything I needed for this print project, so it cost me nothing to make! Woo hoo!

I used a black satin finish spray paint because that's all I had on hand. I love the pop of black against the white frame. Leaning it against the wall keeps in casual. Full reveal of the bar cart coming soon!

Don't forget to be creative and work with what you have! CHEERS! xo
