Ikea Cart Kitchen Island

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...

The new color was perfect for this cart!

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

The top is stained with Minwax cloths (affiliate link) that I won from a giveaway over at My Repurposed Life. 

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.
