Trash to Treasure from Mom’s Basement

“So I was antiquing with my mom in Stillwater earlier this summer and an old AV cart with clear acrylic wheels caught my eye,” Jackie tells us at Teal & Lime.  “My mom said, ‘I have one like that in my basement.’ She must have seen my eyes widen and my ears perk up, because then she said, ‘Do you want it?'”

Did she ever!  Jackie had been hoping to find one of these to use as a snack cart in her basement.  The one her mom had was a perfect fixer-upper.  She used Rustoleum’s Protective Gloss Enamel spray paint in Navy to cover up the drab avocado green.  Jackie also added Ikea cabinet handles to the top of the cart to serve as sides that would prevent the snacks from falling off.  Now the pretty cart serves as a healthy hydration station in Jackie’s basement–quite a switch, right?
