{Kitchen DIY}




This is from {Summer 2012}..
This cart was pitched in the trash by our neighbor. I  picked it out, and knocked the doors off as you can tell in the top picture. I cleaned it , and scrubbed layers of grease off the pealing veneer & 1960's finish. After cleaning and knocking the doors off and the middle shelf I was ready to PAINT!!! I picked up three cans of white gloss finish and sprayed until each crevice was covered. I then purchased some tack paper from the dollar store that just happened to match the theme of my kitchen which at the time was white/ paisley . Pealed and cut paper to stick to the cart & well its all history from there. Needless to say I love the cart & its purpose for the trash can and extra cute space. Its nice to have a movable cart which is also equipped with a pull- out cutting board all for under $10! Enjoy Loves!
Note: Excuse picture quality , this is from my Oh, so OLD camera! 




 These were plain mason jars my husband got from work as well.  As I know everyone is into mason jars right now..I simply cleaned & sprayed them with gloss blue. ( Don't use gloss on the distressed mason jars) Use flat paint!! Works better with the rustic charm look! I then took a nail file  & distressed the areas that would have normal wear & tear. I took some brown ribbon I had laying around & added it to the tops.  Stuck some Fake flowers..Yes, fake flowers.. my husband LAUGHS hysterically @ this..but hey I had them laying around in my scrap/crafts room. :) These went in the new kitchen decor. I will post before & after of the kitchen face lift!!
