Going Green...Finished Cart Project!
ack in February I was inspired by a saucy lime green buffet table that I found on Design*Sponge. I immediately ran out to Home Depot and bought a very similar paint color for my wooden service cart that I purchased from the Salvation Army a few months ago.

I primed and painted the cart, then went back with an Ed Roth Stencil and painted a small gorilla head in the bottom right corner of the tray. I originally wanted to replace my microwave stand in the kitchen and make a cute bar area, but I didn't think it would be smart for me to cut out valuable storage space. So I decided that I would move my TV armoire (that is rarely ever used) into the dining area and use my service cart as a buffet table in front of my couch. Once I had the cart in place, I realized I needed some wall art pronto! I grabbed an old wooden frame and wrapped a piece of Ikea fabric (leaving the sides exposed) and behind it I placed a piece of an old paper window panel to create a frame around the canvas. This made a really nice rectangular wall hanging and was super easy to create! So far I have really enjoyed the new furniture arrangement and am just loving my "new" lime green cart!
