I got all these flower pots for $4.00. I'll be using them little by little for each project. But for this project I used 4. I washed them in hot soapy water.

Gave the cart a face lift by spray painting it using Krylon indoor/outdoor paint in blue ocean breeze and metallic gold

Used decorative duct tape to enhance it. Planted my herbs in each pot

    We had a cart just like this one in our house when I was growing up. It lived in the pantry off the kitchen as a home for a Westinghouse (electric) oven -- precursor of today's microwaves. lol
    It was painted many times over the years in different colors, and it usually was my job to do the painting (when I was old enough, of course) every time Mom wanted to change the decor. And Mom changed the decor frequently ! She loved to re-decorate. And of course, the colors changed with the trends over the years -- started out red, went to avocado green, then beige, and finally white. I don't know what happened to that table once Mom was gone, but your post brought back some pleasant memories. Thanks ! And great job, BTW, it looks fantastic !
