Rolling Cart Side of the Road Find

So, what did I do with these babies?

Well I began by taking the old crummy wood off one cart, it was rotting, not in a good chippy way either. 

Now both carts are similar but not identical.

Your suggestions were fantastic!

Joyce and Kathy saw potential with old crates.

So I plopped an old crate on top of the cart and stuck it in the corner for decoration. 

Actually, the crate, mirror and flowers were already there, I just put the cart under it all and I love the way it looks.

I liked Lesley's suggestion too, do nothing! Now that will be easy!

So I put a very large, square, white platter on top and put it on my sideboard.

Keeping the Fairbanks name showing was important to a lot of readers, so in both options, the platter and the crate can be removed. 

Nothing was permanently attached.

One reader even went as far as to research it on ebay and let me know the exact same one was selling for $225.00! Wow! 

Thanks so much Pam!

And then there was Dog Mom's suggestion...

That one made me laugh!

Thank you everyone for your input!

I'm sure glad I found 2 of them because there were so many great ideas, I'm sure I will be moving them around the house and as usual changing my ideas a lot!
