Needing more counter surface in her kitchen, Meg of Oliver & Rust did some online window shopping for a small island or kitchen cart. She fell in love with one at William-Sonoma, but the pricetag was way out of reach. “After not getting or finding what I want, I was huffing in the garage and saw my paint cart–formerly the little island in our first home,” Meg says. “The top was covered with paint but the size was perfect.”
