Check Out This Really Cool Turn of Century Oak Factory Cart!

One of the problems of being in the business of vintage and antiques is that I find some really cool stuff and then don’t want to part with it.  This is one of those pieces.  I think I am going to keep it.  ( I say that about vintage table cloths too!)  I will sand it and stain it in a natural warm  wood tone and then put a satin urethane on it.  I think it will fit in one of my guest rooms and I will use it for blankets.  Or here I go again, maybe a I will use it in my kitchen.  It is a great piece made up of oak and pine with cast iron bars across the back and huge wheels with cast iron holders.  This is a solid piece and weighs a ton.  I will add more pictures when I get this job done.



I am an interior designer with over 27 years of experience in both residential and commercial design. I love the "do it yourself" person because I am a do it yourself person and I very much identify with making old new again. I believe that our spirits are rejuvinated and inspired when we relect who we are and what we believe in and are not afraid to face the harder parts of our lives. This blog will be dedicated to that purpose. I am also a survivor of domestic violence. I have an insatiable desire to grow and learn about myself in both spiritual and emotional ways. I love being a guest speaker for events in self-growth with the idea of hopefully inspiring others that past traumas can be over come and life can be terrific or at the very least good!
