thrift store cart + kitchen counter = true love
I know you have seen it before...my little thrift store cart. I used to have it in my entry way, but I was getting tired of it there and looking for something a little bit more formal to put by the front door.
I knew I had a round, mahogany side table in the basement that I picked up at a yard sale for $3 and still hadn't done anything with it yet~so I decided to move it to the entry way. Initially I was going to paint it, but I decided to leave it dark wood. It isn't in too bad of condition...
I knew I couldn't get rid of the cart. I did like it, I just didn't know where to put it. I had picked it up at the thrift store for around $5, and spray painted it white. I was about to move it to the basement, when I spied my kitchen counter. It isn't a really long counter, is pretty boring, and has a fair amount of space at the end, so I decided to try it out there for fun. I fell in love! It dresses up my little kitchen, and adds a place to display all of my thrift store vintage luncheon plates, real silver from yard sales, and serving pieces.
Cute, don't you think?
