A Rescued Rolling Cart with a West Elm Inspired Makeover

A few months ago I found a metal rolling cart in a garbage pile at work,” tells Kathy at The Salvaged Boutique.  Delighted with the possibilities of her find, she took it home for a makeover.


It was obvious that a few coats of paint would do wonders for this cart.  But Kathy wanted to take it a step further.  Inspired by West Elm’s Rubicon Rug, she decided to go with a geometric pattern on the cart.  She painted the cart’s legs gold and the shelves white, then taped off the Rubicon-esque diamond stripes on the top of shelf of the cart and painted those gold.  The result is an elegant transformation that open the door wide for using this cart as a mini bar, accent table, or kitchen accessory.  Beautiful!

  1. I have one of these in my garage. Needed some ideas to get it looking good.

  2. Wow! I love everything about that! I think it just needs a few bottles of bubbly *wink* I have a similar cart that I’ve been trying to decide what to do with, this is great inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Oh wow! What a transformation. That looks so great.
