Rolling Cart..Goodwill Glamour

Can you see the price? It was $3.99 only it was half-off day at the Gee-Dub (Goodwill) so I paid $2.15. Right up my alley. It is chocolate brown here.
Dang! I forgot to take a "Before" photo until after I sprayed the legs, so use your chocolate brown imagination.
Look! the sides flip up!



If you liked the chair re-do, your eyes are going to fall out when you see this one!



After


A little note writing cart in my office OR.....


How about a little bath caddy?
I love the curvy legs with the tiny casters!
DIY Day @ ASPTL


I used "Brushed Nickel" Spraypaint for this project.


*Update*
I think Restoration Hardware is stalking me! Look what they emailed to me this morning.

Theres is $295.00 on sale, mine was $2.15 on sale! Score!!!
