Ikea Hack

In case you needed more validation that Ikea was heaven on earth- here is a hack for an Instagram-worthy bar cart for under $35!

The Ikea Sunnersta Utility Cart can be found in stores or online for $29.99. This cart is a great basic… and super easy to put together.

SUNNERSTA Utility cart IKEA Gives you extra storage in your kitchen.

After you have your cart, run to any craft store for a can of gold metallic spray paint. I love this kind because it has a primer included.

Next, lay out all of the side pieces (not the white trays) on top of a tarp or old sheet and paint! I did 2 coats on each side, letting each coat dry for about an hour. Be sure to spin the wheels with each coat so all areas get painted!

You can also use this time to spray paint the screws that are included.

Now its time to put it together and see the final product:
