Vintage Cart Makeover

Friday, August 24, 2012

After two weeks of holidays this summer, I'm back to work and starting to prepare for the fall.  Here's what I've been working on this week!

This cart had been in my garage for some time.  Originally, I was hoping to keep it but after a short while I realized I just couldn't find the right spot for it in my home.  So, we would have to part:(

The geometrical cut out design on the sides caught my eye right away when I spotted this piece.  For some reason I immediately pictured it white and fresh.

It has been painted with pure white chalk paint and distressed slightly.  I sealed it using French Linen chalk paint mixed with clear wax for a slight grey washed look.

The wash is very subtle but you can kind of see in this close up.

I love the idea of using this in a bathroom as I have it staged here.  It would be perfect for extra towels and soaps etc that you don't have room for in your cupboards and on counter tops.  At the end of a bed with some boxes or baskets, in a baby nursery, or a laundry room.

It measures 16.5" d x 32 1/4" w x 25" h.
