Shopping cart~

The shopping cart that I picked up at a yard sale recently for the mere sum of five buckeroos has gotten a make-over. Here is the before photo.I spray painted it with flat white paint and I made some white liners for the two wire baskets. Doesn't it look so much happier now? I'm going to tuck it in my hallway beside my front door. I'm going to fill each basket with odds and ends that seem to multiply in my house when I'm not looking. Super great storage for under $10 bucks! Caute!

You can view more transformations over at "Shabby Chic Cottage" and also over at "A Soft Place to Land" Kimba is hosting a "do it yourself" linky party. The Coloradolady is also hosting a Vintage Thingie Thursday. And last, but not least...Leigh over at "Tales From Bloggeritaville" is hosting a Thrifty Thursday linky party~ Becky is hosting a Linky party as well on her blog "Beyond the Picket Fence" Also... Jen from the blog "Sanctuary Arts at Home" is hosting a make-over party!

that may be the cutest makeover I have seen today! What a perfect idea to lkeep it for those htings that multiply and that you never know where to put. It would be perfect for hats, gloves, scarves and handbags too!

Eeek !! The wall shelf you got thrifting a few posts down, I HAVE THE SAME EXACT SHELF !!! Lol !! Same wallpaper, everything. I carefully took out the old wallpaper and will be covering it in a pretty pastel one I have, and I painted it the same off white yours is, now what are the odds of that ?? :) Love the cart, Happy Saturday !! :)

Dawn said...

Very clever - and a great use. Mine "stuff" always ends up on the stairway waiting for me to take it up.

Thanks for coming over to visit!

Judy said...

What a fabulous find! Every now and then one hits a real good day at the thrift store!

I think it looks great all painted up and lined with the fabric. You did a great job!

Thanks for the slip cover tutorial. I have several things that need a new slip, so I am saving this post for when I get the time and the nerve!!!

I received my package from your OWOH give-away!!! I love everything!! And, your packaging was so very cute.
(I play the piano, so I had to play the wrapping!)
Thanks much.
