Pop of Retro Color: Orange Bar Cart

I've had this little bar cart for a few years now. I bought it specifically so I could one day paint it, because its original condition was less than appealing [rusty brass, faux wood metal, bleh..]. I finally bit the bullet and painted this little guy last week, and I absolutely love it! Orange is on trend to be a big color for 2015, and it has such a bold, retro feel, so it seemed like a perfectly appropriate choice for a bar cart. I used a can of Amy Howard's furniture lacquer paint in Kumquat [yes, I chose this solely because I love the word Kumquat..].  Its petite size means it fits in all kinds of adorable little nooks of my living area.  Below, I have it tucked beside my dining room banquette, making all my cocktail making necessities within arms reach. I may put my kumquat cart up for sale, but I secretly hope no one loves it as much as I do!
