The Rolling Cart Saved from the Dump4:30:00 AM
Usually if it is too far gone I pass it by.... but I love rolling carts.
I happened to find this cart in front of a neighbor's house.
It's always been a dream of mine to find something, fix it up then return it to where I found it.
This time since I know the person, I can!
The first thing I had to do was to cut the legs on one side of the cart to be the same length as the other 2 legs.
I think at one time there was once a bar with big wheels on one side of this cart.
This cart was truly a mess!
Once the legs were all the same length, I drilled holes and inserted new white castors in the legs.
I'm trying a new color of Fusion Mineral Paint today... Lamp White is a beautiful white with a hint of blue undertones.
I gave the cart 2 coats then distressed the edges.
The cart has a few imperfections so distressing the edges made it all look like it was meant to be.
One side of the cart has a drawer that was in perfect condition inside.
The other side has a handle that moves up and down and in and out.
The cart has wings that open so the cart can act as a small table or serving area.
I had my doubts about this one... I wasn't sure if I could save it but I did!
I happily kept this old piece out of the dump.
And so I didn't actually return it to my neighbor but I did send her a picture of what it looks like now... she was truly amazed. (I don't think she knows what I do for fun) LOL
