lexington bar cart

Add a little retro design to your Lexington Bar Cart with vinyl! Use your Cricut® machine to cut this retro design, add it to your cart and then style with bar items.
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.  

Step 2

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner, and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen. Adjust the Project Copies in the upper left corner to “6” and click ‘Apply’. 

Step 3

Place your vinyl, grid-side down, onto your 12"x24" cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ as your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat. 

Step 4

Use scissors to cut away the vinyl around your design. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative space surrounding the design. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper. 

Step 5

Use your scissors to cut each design into individual strips. 

Step 6

Use a ruler to find the center of both long sides of each mesh tray of your cart. Mark with a dry erase marker. 

Step 7

Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than one of the design strips. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over the first design strip. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape. 

Step 8

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape. 

Step 9

Find the center of the vinyl design and align this with the center mark on one of the long sides of a mesh tray. Hold the transfer tape with the design over the mesh tray, also centered between the top and bottom of the mesh tray; then press it onto the mesh tray. Wrap the excess around to the short sides of the mesh tray. 

Step 10

Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface. 

Step 11

Repeat Steps 7-10 to each long side of the mesh trays with the remaining five design strips. 

Step 12
Assemble your cart as directed in the included instructions.
