Recently I was surfing the web and I came across some major inspiration. This art cart/storage caddy on wheels.
I immediately sent my mother-in-law an email that Mur-Man needed one STAT. Could Doug (her hubby) make one?
This was the mess that is Mur-Man's art/craft supplies all shoved into a desk!
Doug agreed, whipped it up, and it is amazing! I LOVE IT!
Here's the art cart before paint. Isn't it awesome!
We filled the holes with wood fill and sanded it smooth.
I then primed the cart and applied three coats of royal blue paint with satin finish. Mur-Man selected the color.
I let it dry over-night. The cart was beautiful, but it wasn't done yet.
Next up, I needed storage solutions for the cart. I hit-up the Target dollar section and picked up some great items. I also found two Nate Berkus desk-top organizers in the office supply section that were on clearance! My total cost came to around $20.00.
Next up, I knew I wanted to add vinyl lettering to the cart. I landed on MPL for Mur-Man and metallic gold.
They were really easy to apply.
It was exciting loading it up with all of Mur-Man's art supplies (including his light bright supplies). It's perfect (and super organized).
Thanks to my talented father-in-law Doug...this project ONLY cost me around $30.00!
