For years, I’ve been looking for a factory cart to repurpose as a coffee table. This isn’t an extremely unique idea, as I’m pretty sure you could waltz into Restoration Hardware after dinner tonight and buy one for $1,000 or so. But I wanted an original one. I’ve seen them in antique stores off an on, but never made the leap. Sometimes the carts were in bad shape, most times they were just too expensive.
Not on Friday, though.
Katharine, Courtney, their boyfriends and myself went on a five-person date to the Pop Up Shop in Fountain Square on Friday evening. The Pop Up Shop is this little antique/thrift collection that pops up (ha! get it?) once a quarter in the bottom floor of someone’s house, and I’d been looking forward to it for a couple of weeks. It was there that I found the perfect cart at the perfect price!
Much to B’s pleasure and sheer delight, he helped me carry it up to my apartment Monday after work. Ta da!
Now to decide how to decorate it. Right now it’s covered with, well, everything! And what to do with the trunk that once stood in its place? This could take me many blissful nights to figure out!
