Attach Back Casters
While the front casters are meant to remain concealed, the rear casters add to the overall look of the bar cart and should be visible. Use a 3/4-inch paddle bit and drill to create holes through the right-hand legs of the bookshelf. Next, insert the rod through the drilled holes, then fasten the wheels tightly.
Centered along the right-hand side of the top shelf, attach patio door handle using drill or screwdriver.
Add Paint and Finish
Depending on the style of patio door handle used, either fully update the paint or simply touch up any nicks using semigloss paint and foam paintbrush. Once dry, use the handle as a towel or linen holder.
Create a beautifully chic serving tray for entertaining by lining its surface with gold leaf.
