Ikea Cart Kitchen Island

6:00:00 AM

My favorite project of all time was
the Ikea Cart Remake I created at 
5 am one morning...

Apartment Therapy's The Kitchn 
liked it too and featured it on their website.

Well today I'm taking another naked Ikea cart

and making it fabulous...

I began by creating a custom color
using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I mixed Louis Blue with English Yellow
and got this gorgeous green...

It was perfect for this cart...

A coat of clear wax was applied over the green for protection.

The top is stained with Minwax cloths
that I won from a giveaway over at

If you don't know Gail... you should! 
She makes fabulous hand-made furniture.

These wood finishing clothes work great and make the job 
of staining much easier.

I added hooks and handles for towel bars to the side of the cart
and it is ready to work as a handy moveable kitchen island.
