Bric a Brac Makeover

Over 11 months ago, I posted about this little janky cart I picked up at the local Goodwill.

It was a sad looking cart and both Michael and my Dad told me it looked like a piece of junk.

But I went to work on it anyway.

This project was so darn long ago that I really can’t remember all the details – but I gave it a good sanding down and then proceeded to take off the two winged parts of the trolley.  Also, turned out that the bottom piece was covered in fake wood, so I chipped all of that off.  The wheels were in a terrible state, I did my best to polish the brass and clean the wheels with Bar Keeper’s Friend and brass cleaner.

After a good sanding down, I primed the whole thing and then painted it in a Martha Stewart Blue color we picked up from Home Depot.

Here she is as her newly refreshed self.  I STILL have not put the bin handle I purchased on the side drawer…

    It’s lovely! I love those types of carts. And the color you picked for the makeover is awesome. Martha Stewart has a great color line!
