Old Storage Becomes New Outdoor Decor

When Kelli from Lolly Jane was a newlywed, her mom bought her this cabinet for much-needed storage in a tiny apartment.  On a whim, Kelli painted it with sage green craft paint one night while her husband was working late.  Recently, she decided to give it new life as a garden cart.


As you can see in the before picture, the cabinet had chicken wire on the doors.  Wanting something a little less revealing for outdoor storage, Kelli replaced the chicken wire with beadboard.  She painted the insets on the cabinets white, and the rest of the the cabinet a lovely shade of coral pink.  On the sides, she created a herringbone pattern for visual interest.  Caster wheels and new hardware finish off this old cabinet into a perfect little garden cart.
