Rusty wheels.  YUM.

I've been drooling over farm and industrial "cart turned coffee table" projects for forever. I finally scored a great cart and made it over for ME! To add some height, and width to match up with the wheels, I added some fabulous chunky lumber. The entire piece is sealed with polyurethane for safety and durability, and the large top surface is perfect for paperwork, snacks, games, and FEET. Head over to to read more about it.
