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!
