Factory Cart Coffee Tables

Factory Cart Coffee Tables

If you've been following me since the very beginning, like waaay back, these factory carts may sound vaguely familiar to you. If not, you can catch up on all the details here. Over the past two years, my collection of factory carts has slowly been dwindling down. The biggest challenge with refinishing these carts is the mess they make, requiring me to work outdoors, weather permitting. Actually, that's probably the second biggest challenge. Getting motivated to refinish these carts is definitely more of a battle. It requires a good week of giving myself a pep talk, telling myself I can be rewarded with a massage and wine afterwards, and maybe (just maybe) we'll have our garage back at the end of this so we can quit parking our car in the driveway.

Randolph Street Market

Randolph Street Market

It's FINALLY here! THE event Chicagoans have been waiting for all year! Ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration. But it's at least the event I have been looking forward to all year... Randolph Street Market! Let me take a minute to get everyone up to speed here. Randolph Street Market is a monthly fair with over 250 vendors including everything from vintage goods, antiques, home decor, apparel, furniture, and much more. I have actually been going to this fair for years and have never left empty handed. You just never know what you're going to find, but you know it's going to be good! It's always exciting to check out the new vendors and see their new collections. Well, this year I'm coming back, but this time on the other side. That's right, this year I will be attending as a vendor! I'm not sure exactly what to expect, but am super excited about the opportunity (and looking forward to sneaking a bit of personal shopping in as well). You can get all the details here.

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.

Factory Cart

A couple months ago I got my hands on a collection of original factory carts. If you don't know much about these carts, let me tell you, they are in high demand right now. The industrial look is so popular at the moment and these carts are the perfect piece to give any space that vibe. Although they are used for a variety of functions, I most often see them being used as coffee tables.
