Bar Cart-Red and Rusty


At the Flea Market I found this vintage rusty cart and I fell in love.  It was pretty grungy, but I knew it was halfway to beautiful.
Before:
I unloaded it from my car and then scrubbed all the dirt and grime off.  To make it keep its beautiful red color I brushed a very light coat of hemp oil on the cart.  Wow-it is a beauty!

  6. Hi Darrielle,
    Love your bright red tiered cart. I like the fact that you kept its original color. I bought a yellow cart a few months ago -- I kinda like the rusty and chipped look, so haven't yet painted it...visiting from Beyond the Picket Fence, and will follow your blog now, too.
