D.I.Y. Cart Makeover


Finally, my first D.I.Y. on the blog! Yay!
Turns out the mister and I make a pretty good team.
I have a vision (albeit a pretty simple one), and he executes it (with a little help from me).
We found this old Costco cart for $3.00 at the bargain barn a few weeks back, and it was in definite need of some TLC, as evidenced by the pictures.
As soon as I saw the cart I knew I wanted it to house my microwave and a few other kitchen gadgets.
Luckily it was a quick and easy fix. Cheap, too :)

All you need is a couple cans of spray paint (we choose Summer Squash), some sandpaper and a screwdriver.
First we took the cart apart and sanded down all the surfaces.
Then we spray painted said surfaces (except for the railing).
Let dry for 24 hours.
Put back together.
Good as new!
The hardest part of this whole project was picking the perfect color of spray paint.

I know this is a super easy self-explanatory project makeover, but I wanted to share anyhow.
Being able to see the potential in cheap, old and rusty items is a fairly new concept to me.
Not necessarily a new concept, but a new inspiration I'd say.
I feel like I've got a new set of eyes when I'm out thrifting now.
So many possibilities!...maybe not such a good thing for a compulsive thrifter like me ;)
More D.I.Y.s coming soon including a $10.00 coffee table makeover!
