Ikea Cart Kitchen Island6:00:00 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.
