Vintage Kitchen Utility Cart

We spent the last weekend in Tulsa with my fabulous Uncle Dean and Aunt Jill.  I LOVE visiting them not just because I love them, but also because they take us to garage sales, estate sales, antique malls, and the ever anticipated flea market.  I found this little cart at a garage sale as we were heading back to the hotel to drop off all of my goodies that I had collected up to that point.  I have wanted to make over a utility cart for a long time, so here it is...

Let me tell you, this thing was FILTHY!  I will not even tell you what I found when I pulled it apart to paint.  However, it was washed and disinfected before painting!


I forgot to take a picture before I disassembled it.  I had also already started painting, but here are the pieces that were waiting for treatment :)

and AFTER...

I used Krylon Ocean Breeze blue for the shelves and Chrome for the side pieces.  Next, I added a white stencil to the top shelf .

Linking up to two wonderful blog parties called Addicted 2 Decorating and Watch Out, Martha!


More pictures of my finds and their makeovers to come soon!
