before and after: utility cart

Splash of Lime is growing.  It turns out, many people enjoy finding previously loved items.  And with growing demands, what began as a mere experiment has become a bit of a family operation.  There's my sweet daddy whose work on blog projects may be affecting his golf game... per his daily score card tweet, he "Struggled in today, 88. Must have worked too hard on the blog yesterday."

And then, there's my precious big brother and my sister-in-law.  Over the weekend, my brother Jeb unleashed his AAAAA-MAZING makeover skills.  Gigi and I gave him the challenge, HELP US turn this utility cart into something beautiful.

So Jeb took this...

Before...

And turned it into this....

After...

He cleaned up the chrome legs, added the happiest blue paint (selected by my sister-in-law, SPT), and even cleaned up and coated the bottom of the trays.

It's even more amazing in real life than it is in the picture.  It could be used in a million different ways... in a home office or craft room, in a nursery or child's room, in a kitchen or... my top pick... as a bar cart.

There's a similar one here on Etsy.  They are asking $45 as is or $85 painted, plus an additional $24 for shipping.  Interested and prefer our price?  E-mail single.splash.of.lime@gmail.com with your offers.
