Rolling Kitchen Cart

An Instagram friend collected way too much scraps. As she was deciding what to do with them she thought it would be fun to challenge whoever dared to build something awesome with their own. Of course, I was in. I'm a bit of a novice, as I only learned to use power tools a few measly months ago. (Shhh..Like even a drill) Despite the fact that I was completely intimidated, I went for it. And boy am I happy I did. It was beyond challenging to find scraps that were useful for my project, but I pieced it together. Barely! I thought it would be cool to incorporate an old cutting board (which had been part of a kitchen drawer previously) as a butcher block for the top. It was reusing not just scraps, but actual items as well. Attaching the cutting board was difficult for me as well. I had to notch a piece off on top of the frame since the cutting board was at two different levels. I had never done this before. It's by no means perfect but I give myself A for effort. The whole theme of the project was reuse, old...so naturally I went with a rustic look. I absolutely love how it turned out, and am so happy to have the cart!!!
