Feature Friday - Factory Carts

Since my last post of the factory carts, there has been a lot of hype built up around them. I have received an overwhelming amount of feedback ranging from "How can you put that heavy cart on a nice rug? You're going to ruin the rug!" to  "OMG I love those and want one NOW!" Overall, the responses have been extremely positive and people want to know more about the carts. 

I know these carts can be difficult to get your hands on, so I want to share with you other creative ideas for repurposing carts. You can check out all of these projects on my clipboard on HomeTalk. For those of you who aren't familiar with HomeTalk, it's similar to Pinterest, but home-specific. You can find all sorts of cool projects and decorating ideas here.

Pretty cool, huh? I definitely want to create one of those bar carts. I love that they are on casters and can be moved all over the house, depending on where you are entertaining. 

I'm also a fan of the hot chocolate station although mine would probably be a coffee station. This would be a great addition when you have guests. Instead of everyone huddling around the kitchen in the morning trying to get their morning fix of caffeine, set up the coffee station near the dining room table so everyone naturally gathers there instead. You can set out a variety of coffees, teas, creamers and sweeteners. No more having to guess where the Splenda is stored!


In addition to being featured on Hometalk, I am excited to share with you that my factory cart project has been published in Apartment Therapy! This is another fabulous site that focuses on home projects. They discuss everything from small DIY projects to major home renovations. You can check out my Before and After project here.

I have been blown away with all of the tremendous feedback I have received these past couple weeks. It is inspiring to hear all of your comments and I love connecting with everyone while doing something I am passionate about.

Ok, that's all for now. I think it's time for a furniture makeover post soon, so I've got to get back to work!
