Sunny Rolling Cart Revamp

My mom found this rolling cabinet in someone's trash pile! She snagged it and held onto it in her garage until I came to visit, at which point I carted it back up to Vermont with me from some serious TLC.

I didn't like the dark, sticky look that it had and I wanted to take it in a completely opposite direction, so I splashed it with my favorite color... yellow!

I think it's LOVELY! Do you like it? I spray painted the screens white because for some reason there was a red outline on it. I'm debating keeping or selling this piece. I'll decide next week.

The wheels on the bottom of this piece have inspired me to make my own rolling dolly platform for fixing up furniture in the future. It's difficult to move large pieces in and out of the garage when Mike isn't around, so a rolling block will help. And it will keep the pieces off the ground a few inches so I can get complete paint coverage from top to bottom. So that's up next!

Meanwhile I am working on 2 file cabinets, however this weekend I will have to put that on hold as Mike and I trek out to Rochester, NY to see my grandparents and family! I'm also playing along with a few August photo challenges, so follow me on Twitter @TheresaMcCabe and Instagram @TheresaMcCabe to see my fabulous photography skills! Have a great day :)
