Apparently I am sucker for all things cart. I mean, really. They are irresistible as they provide function, storage, and a cute factor to most any style of home. Can you blame me that I felt sorry for this worn out vintage Cosco cart when I saw it at the thrift store?
I’ll admit I paid more for it than I think I should have. tsk. However, I repeat…I love carts! You can see all my past cart makeovers and builds HERE.
The original color appeared to be an off white, as you can see it peeking through. At some point, someone decided to
I just have to say I have the coolest friends and family. They know my #trashure lovin’ heart and vision for other people’s unwanteds. This time around I am sharing how these cast-off Target bar cart parts gets turned into upcycled serving trays. It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday too, so you’ll get to see what my blogger friends have for you too. Hooray!
Would you have passed up these bar cart pieces if offered to you? When Mandy sent me the picture of them, I was kinda like…fun! Most often I am up to a good challenge. This caught my interest because
Do you ever find that it take a bit before you realize you crush on a certain object? Like it doesn’t show up until you see a pattern that you notice that’s tell-tale. Well, I apparently have a thing for carts. ahem. Like any and all. I’ve worked on tea carts, built my own carts, and even buy carts for my workshop. So, when I spied this vintage Mid Century modern bar cart at the thrift store, it may have jumped in my cart before anyone else could grab it. tee hee!
I know without a doubt that the casters are what draw me in every time. Having mobility with style is so fun, isn’t it? This little gem was missing a few things, but
Storage is something we all long for, but sometimes we lack it for obvious reasons. Maybe you have little closet space or just overall not a whole lotta room, but…you can add storage in places by getting creative. This worn out vintage Cosco serving cart caught my eye and I’m going to show you how it can make a BIG difference in a small way.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it doesn’t take much money to make your house your home. I’m a prime example of that. With our family of 8 we have to watch spending and creating storage is
There’s only one thing better than doing what you love, and that’s when you get to do it with other like-minded folks. Today is Furniture Fixer Uppers day and my blogger friends and I have quite the assortment of makeovers for you. My project begins with this thrifted side table and ends with a child’s tea cart. Let the fun begin!
This cutie-patootie table came home with me and it sat for a bit because I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I had many ideas, but I couldn’t pick one that jumped out at me. I had done one like it before as seen in this table post. Sometimes when I need to decide I will bring the piece in question into my home and just let it
Where do you find your inspiration? I get asked many times how I know something should look. Honestly, I don’t have a book of rules I follow, but most often I try to stick to era and function. However, there are times it’s fun to think outside the box. Today is Trash to Treasure Tuesday and I’m going to show you how this $1 yard sale find gets turned into a DIY butcher block cart. Stay tuned to see what my blogger friends have for you too.
I’ve often mentioned I have many who lookout for potential projects for me and my parents are one of my best bargain hunters. My mom spied this chunk o’ goodness at a yard sale for $1 and thought I could do something with it. Sweet, huh?!
It looked as though someone
What sane person doesn’t want extra storage in their house, right? I mean, the kind that looks good AND serves a purpose. I know I’m not the only one here tired of plastic bins and tubs scattered about. Check out this thrifted find. I spied it from a mile away because I LOVE BASKETS. This one is about to become a DIY rolling laundry cart. Stay with me now.
At first glance, this is pretty and really nothing wrong with it except for the busted/missing leather hinge straps and general wear.

It did come with a liner that I had removed and was in the process of cleaning. The shiny, orangey wicker didn’t do it for me and my love of farmhouse style. So…I decided to take it up a notch. As in…
Do you know what time it is?? It’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! The one day each month where my blogger friends and I put together some wonderful transformations for you. My project for the day is turning these pieces of trash (aka. trashure) into a repurposed changing table cart. woot!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it sure is a blessing when people get you. My parents are always telling me they saw something they thought I would like to work on. They’ve blessed the kids and I a million times over with gift of things they found. My dad own several rental properties and one of the not-so-fun duties is cleaning up after someone who has torn apart his hard work.
Here is the aftermath of one of those instances.
A couple posts ago I mentioned that I had been on the hunt for a chair to go with a desk, but somehow came home with much more. ahem. That’s what happens when you hit the thrift stores. We have a few locally and I’m ever so thankful. However, what ends up jumping in my truck? Not a chair that I needed. Oh no. An adorable vintage tea cart. tsk. Does this ever happen to you? (please say yes so I know I’m not alone, k?) This is perfect for today’s Furniture Fixer Uppers! You’ll see more in a minute and have a chance to WIN.
Can you blame me? I love tea carts and have had several in my possession over the years, but this one just won out as my favorite. Though to look at it you may think, meh.
It is made out of simple pine and has that super dark stain to hide the
