Up-Cycled Cart With Meaning!

I love painting and refinishing furniture.  I especially have to say that when I have fun results like I did with this cart that I come away from a project even more motivated to paint then I started out!  I love this little cart!  And my favorite part may be that I added a little touch of meaning to it!


If you know me and my style then you know that words and quotes are my favorite thing.


And so naturally I added a quote to my cart.


A little reminder to myself that I can glance at while I am curled up on my couch sipping coffee and thinking about life and looking out at the water.


No, I will never give up, because the tide will turn.

A reminder I happen to need right now dealing with my home renovations!


I of course added my quote with rubber alphabet stamps and ink.  For this particular project I used black StazOn because I didn’t want the ink to run or rub off.


What do you think?  I like the new beautiful sugar cane color versus the bright red.  I used my new Maison Blanche La Craie furniture paint, it adhered perfectly to the metallic surface, yet another reason that I am SO in love with this paint!


I think it fits right in with my beach-y chic decor–how about you?!
