DIY Storage – Entry or Side Table

“Repurpose a vintage cart as a side table for a living room or entryway. A cart like this can be used as a drink station when entertaining or when outfitted with baskets on the lower shelf, it can be used as a handy entryway organizer and hold seasonal gear, shoes, and more out-the-door essentials.” Thank you Better Homes and Gardens!



Here’s my adaptation: I couldn’t find a place for my beloved wicker tea cart we brought back from Kenya, and I also needed something to go in our entry way. A wonderful marriage!

The bottom shelf holds games, which didn’t have a place to live either. My vintage guest book sits on the top shelf.

Since most people here take off their shoes (due to snow, etc.), I wanted a place for them to sit. I had bought a lacquered pink wrought iron chair which was perfect for that spot!

We painted an antique mirror lacquer red and completed the scene with an lacquered orange wrought iron hat rack. A fun, colorful welcome to our guests!
