"Cart" Blanche!

Pin It Here's another project I finished today. Yes, I was on a mission to get some things done before the school year kicks into high gear. I don't have a before picture of this 50s rolling cart, but it is one that I picked up at an antique store several months ago. The vendors had painted it a light green and had intermittently sprayed a silver paint on the chrome. On further inspection after I got home, I discovered it hadn't been prepped correctly. So, now I've made it my own after several hours of sanding, priming, and painting. Here is the final piece...



It will make a great addition to my kitchen, dining room, office, workout room, guest room, or any room for that matter. It will probably serve many purposes in the future!

So, today the green cart went white and the white chair went black. There are several other pieces in the works, so visit again!

  2. My mom has one of these carts (she was a '50's era bride) and it's still in use at her house. I hope someday that it will be in my house, or else I will have to find one like it. Do you have any plans for how to use it?

  3. Right now it is in my kitchen, but I'm considering a move to the office/guest room. When I figure it out, I will certainly post some photos!
