A new beverage cart

Our old beverage cart, which was assembled by Maria when she was about 13 years old, had deteriorated, and it was time to buy a new one.

So, David went to City Mill and purchased a cart for $60. It was made in China.

Here’s a series of photos, which show what a clever handyman David is:

I love it! Isn’t it great to have a new and beautiful beverage cart for a change?

    LOL! When I saw the words ‘beverage cart’ in the title, my thoughts were: That David sure drinks a lot if he need a horse and cart to keep his booze in! Many years ago in Ireland the brewery’s delivered their Stout and whiskey by horse and cart.

    It looks like he had a very organized approach to putting that cart together. Lucky you to have a new beverage cart and a handyman to put it together.

    Very nice cart, Gigi. I know you will get plenty of good use out of it, as will David. 🙂

    It looks lovely. I don’t have a beverage cart but you’ve put the thought into my head now. Thank you for your sweet comment Gigi. I agree about meeting blogging friends. We had such a great time meeting you and David in Washington DC and hope to repeat that one day. Looking forward to our next trip to Hawaii so that we can do just that.

    Bravo! A job well done! Nice cart too.

    I also wondered what you did with a beverage cart. We don’t drink alcohol, and that means we drink lots of tea and coffee. My Mom had a beverage cart and alcohol on hand. So retro.

      We use the cart when we have parties and beverages are served. Bottles of wine or beer or cider need to be opened on a level service. We keep bottle and can openers on top of the cart and the surface bare for those beverages.

      The shelves in the cart are used for canned goods purchased in bulk at Costco. My pantry in the kitchen isn’t big enough for these cans.

    Show us a picture of the old cart. I thought you said you didn’t have many parties….

    That looks sturdy enough for a few more parties. 🙂

    That is a very funny way to assemble a cart, while sitting on the couch. Think that’s the first time I’ve ever seen anyone do it that way.

    When I saw your headline I immediately thought of glass and metal trolleys of the 40s and 50s with all the liquor bottles on display. This was also a new “cart” for me. You learn something new everyday.

      David hates to sit on the floor, because he has a hard time getting up.

      I don’t normally serve hard liquor, such as Scotch, Vodka, etc., so there is no need to store that type of stuff in the cart.

      I used to store wine glasses and goblets on the shelves of the old cart, but stopped doing that when people kept bumping into the cart and the glasses fell out and broke.

    Well, he is much better at putting things together than I am! It looks just terrific!
