Good morning friends!
Whew! I’m exhausted but in such a good way! What a wonderful experience it was this past week partnering with GMC to furnish and decorate a Habitat for Humanity home for a deserving family.
It was a whirlwind of shopping, hotel hopping, painting in a conference room and racing to furnish the house on time! I can’t wait to share it all with you guys next week here on the blog. :)
Today, my trash to treasure friends and I are sharing our fun finds and makeovers with you.
I’m sharing an old cart turned industrial cart …. and now turned coastal cart. ;)
Yep, it’s a REmakeover. I am thrifty to the core! If something no longer works, I will usually try to see if I can give it yet another makeover to make it work for me. Most of the time I can. :)
Here it is “before”…..
I originally gave it a makeover with an “industrial” flair for a furniture painting group I was in.
It really didn’t suit my style so I put it in the garage thinking I’d use it in there.
I never did but also never got rid of it, thank goodness!
So, when redecorating my screened porch, I decided to pull it out and use it there.
And I turned it into this…..
Sooooo much more my style. :)
And the perfect place to store extra things for the porch.
I just LOVE it!
Here’s how I did it…
I patched and filled the original hardware holes so I could use the pretty turquoise knobs I had from Hobby Lobby.
*I’ll share the affiliate links in the highlighted text below so you can find the products. See my disclosure here.
I decided to do a little “distressing” since my porch is coastal casual….beach worn….salt life. ;)
So it basically went from industrial to beach cottage rustic. :)
Love the new knobs…..
Similar knobs >>*here.
The top got a bit of makeover too…..
Since the cabinet was now going to be light, I really wanted the top to be dark.
I love contrast. :)
I love this in this space and so very glad I never got rid of the cart!
It’s hard to hold onto everything but it’s so nice when I hold onto something that I want to use later on.
It was a simple little makeover too, which I love!
Now let’s see what my trash to treasure friends are up to this month….
