Old Oak Cart Turned Into a Dining Room Table – Tuesday’s Treasures

Hi Friends,

How’s it going? We have had a great week! My kiddos spent a few days at my brother Jesse and his wife Jessica’s house for “cousins camp” this past week. They learned screen printing, how to make candles, and recorded their own version of the Wizard of Oz. So adorable!!

This week  I want to show you a fun makeover that’s not quite like most of our furniture transformations but reminded me a lot of a piece we would have made when we were on Flea Market Flip.

We bought this industrial oak cart and originally were going to turn it into a coffee table. When I saw it in person it was way too big so we decided to make it into a dining room table.


We wanted to keep the original wood tones so we cleaned it up with a wire brush and cleaner. Then we wanted our customers to be able to be able to handle food and liquid on top so we used a protective clear coat over the top. We bought 2 inch pipe from Home depot to make the base!

You can see how we attached it here: 06-17-2016-29_27124722923_oIf you like an industrial chic look, this table is for you! How about some detail shots…
