How to: Off the wagon minibar

Give your liquor its own license to an upcycled ride!

When my kitchen was in drastic need of a makeover, I wanted to mix in some playful elements, along with a hint of vintage. Since salvaged materials are a staple of my work, it didn’t take long to land on little red wagons as that perfect mix of cheerful and vintage.


I found my first two red wagons at the Philadelphia Flea Market. Adding one more after some searching on eBay completed the trio. 


Once you have your materials, your mini bar is ready start rolling into its transformation.


3 red wagons beds

2 locking 4” castors

2 standard 4” castors​

8 black pipes 12” long​

8 flanges ½”​

28 couplings ½”​

machine screws and bolts


marker or pencil

tape measure

power drill or drill press

metal step drill bit

work gloves

safety goggles

and a friend to help, is a great idea, too! I got a helping hand from my good friend Kat, who helped me redo give my entire kitchen.
