Thrift Store Gem- I Made My Own Rolling Table for $5

4 Materials
2 Hours

I was heading out to Michaels to get a rolling cart for my Cricut machine and supplies. It cost $59.99. But I decided to stop at the Restore first...boy am I glad I did!!!

Solid wood shelf. Dirty...but solid. Hmmm....would this work??? I have wheels at home that I bought for something and never used.

One guy told me $10 to buy....and older worker said...give it to her for $5...other guy said $7...I said, I will take it right now for $5. Yippee!!

Look at that wood. Perfect for wheels.

I think I need a bacon it so my vinyl doesn't fall out the back 😏

My bargain

Time to measure for the back.

OK OK....I had hubs do the cutting for the back. I was too excited.

I did have to paint and then nail in.

Used Unicorn Spit paint and acrylics. I just had Un with wild colors. Needed to brighten things up.

The back came out nice.

I put Epoxy on the top of it.

Here's a close up.

Love that shine.

All done. I actually forgot to take a Pic of the wheels. It's a little shorter than I wanted, but I can put bigger wheels on if I need to. I really love it though. I'm not trapped in my craft room now.
