Repurposed Trash Find Cart


I grabbed – well, to be honest, hubby grabbed this cart out of a neighbors trash pile. Once we got it home, I started thinking about a fun and inexpensive way to refinish it. This was going to be another one of my trash find repurposed projects where I return it back to the original owners secretly – hee hee.

With my daughter-in-laws help, we took the wheels off and rubbed the whole thing down with a deglosser. We then filled in the door pattern as much as possible with wood filler. We primed and painted everything with white gloss paint. Hubby added some basic block legs to the bottom for us – what a guy, gotta love those awesome hubbies. We added blue craft paper to the doors with Mod Podge and painted a coat of Mod Podge on the top of the blue paper for a clear protective finish. Lastly, we added some inexpensive wooden knobs to the doors. Yay, done!

This turned out to be a sweet little night stand. We secretly returned this cutie back to the original owners front porch, rang their doorbell and ran like crazy!!! Never got caught!
