I’d be willing to bet that at one point or another everyone has had or has seen one of these metal carts.
Or at least they can be.
With a little work of course.
So when my mother-in-law gave me this cart, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it.
A lot of work.
But did this girl care?
Nope. Not at all.
I just put on my big girl gloves and dealt with it.
I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed some more.
Next, I disassembled the cart so it would be easier to paint.
I gave the shelves two coats of my go to white chalk paint.
Spray painted the “legs” with Rustoleum Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze.
I found one I liked over at The Graphics Fairy.
Printed it out to the size I needed and used the chalk method to transfer the graphic.
You can learn how to do the chalk transfer method here.
I love this graphic. I want to put it on everything!
I put my cart back together and only sanded it slightly giving it a rougher look.
You can tell up close that I do NOT have a steady hand.
Whatever though. I think it still looks pretty darn good.
Oh I know.
Do you see this?
Do you see it?
It’s a chair.
Beside my fireplace.
No. Just no.
I’ll probably change it at least 4 or 5 times before I’m happy.
I didn’t want to sit it directly on the shelf so I sat it on an old cutting board.
I don’t even know what it is.
It’s different, unique and full of rust.
I think it’s some sort of heating lamp or something.
And mine was FREE!
