Vintage Microwave Cart

This gas stove has been our microwave / kitchen TV stand for the last 20 years.  It had a cool look and extra storage for cookbooks, etc.  But with the "new" white baseboards (check out post here about the baseboards), the ivory didn't look so great.  Time to make a change.

Which led us on a whirlwind shopping trip to our vintage mall.  We spied a gray utility cart that fit the dimensions we needed, and snapped it up.  Unfortunately, it had some fluorescent orange stenciling on it (sorry, no photo of this).  
A little paint (and distressing) gave us the perfect microwave cart.  And so much more mobile!  It also looks great with our new flooring and baseboards.

  1. That is a really neat old gas stove.

    I like the new cart. I'm loving using chalk paint. I was late getting on the band wagon, but glad I climbed on.

    Happy weekend, am out the rest of the week
    Mississippi is getting a lot of rain from Tropical Depression Cindy. I will be at home getting weather ready.

  2. Ooh, good luck. I saw that your weather was going to be rocky. are you hunkering down at home, or escaping?

  3. I would love to follow your blog by email, but there isn't a way to do so. I just happen upon it every once in awhile from the linky party. Could you add that widget? I'd love to be in the loop. Thanks!

  4. i'm very un-techy, but I will consult with those who know more. thanks for your interest!
