Quilting Cart

Just wanted to show off a project that I think turned out really great!  I was looking for a portable cutting surface that I could move around and put away when I didn't need it. I found this microwave cart on Craigslist for $60. It was solid wood and sturdy and just what I needed (except for the color.)

Here is the before. (I had already tried out the new pulls.) The finish was really splotchy and scratched.

I used Krylon satin spray paint in "Periwinkle" and I found the new pulls at a discount hardware store for 50 cents each! Also, I just used the old hinges with a new coat of "Brushed Nickel" spray paint.

Easy to move!

These "s" hooks work great for keeping tools.


And here's the final product! It's a perfect height for cutting, ironing and hiding junk. It will fit in the closet in case I need the room for guests. Also, I can roll it into the family room if we're watching a not-so-exciting movie and I'd rather be working on a quilt.
Thanks for stopping by!
