Project Information

Here's a project I just recently finished. My wife and I picked up some old beat-up end tables for $20 from an old antique furniture store. We were planning to just refurbish the end tables, but we never got around to it. We also had a space in our kitchen between the fridge and the stove that needed to be filled, and I'd been talking about building a kitchen cart for forever. Early this summer it dawned on me that I could repurpose the old end tables into a new kitchen cart.

I spent forever sanding the finish off the old end tables, but after all that was done, the construction went pretty quick and was a lot of fun. The best part is that all of the wood for this new kitchen cart (except the buttons on the legs) came from those junky old end tables, so this kitchen cart only cost me just over $20 to build. The wood is nothing special, just some cheap pine, but I like the way the contrasting colors of stain liven up the end product. I'm really happy with the way it turned out, and my wife still tells me all the time how good it looks and how happy she is that it's done, so the project was a success!

Thanks for looking.

Nice, I have got so much stuff at thrift stores that turned out to be gold. Great repurposing.
