My Dish Cart Storage/Staging Table

I know I am not alone...
I have dishes stuffed stored ALL over the house in cupboards, closets and dresser drawers... 
and also in the garage. 

Rather than bore you with all the places that I have ‘stuffed’ dishes, I want to share a creative and useful idea.

It is my dish cart/storage table.

I started out as a baby’s changing table 
that I got at the Goodwill for 10 bucks!

It looked like it had never been used,  
but even though, it felt just a little "loose". 
So I asked The Mr. for help. 

He took it apart and glued the dowels. 
Then he tightened up the screws.

I remembered some little black wheels that I never used on the plastic storage drawers towers in my craft room.

So, The Mr. drilled some holes and popped in the wheels.

This is where I store it!
It fits in the closet where I keep my fabrics, 
extra linens, and craft room overflow.

Those nifty little wheels allow me to roll it in and out for easy access. I can also roll it into the other room when I am setting up for a tablescape.

For 10 bucks and very little effort… I am happy!

 What do you think?

What do I think? I think it's pure genius!!! I can't imagine how many trips back and forth it saves you! AND, it's cute!

Diane said...

Brilliant! My real rolling cart is in a storage room holding china. I guess I need to retrieve it or make one like yours. Wow - great idea.

Kathe said...

Elaine stole my comment lol! I agree, you are a genius! I have to go up and down stairs to get my table items! How nice it would be to just wheel them in! Great reuse of an item for another use!

What a great idea! I love that. You really used some creativity for that piece.

I have been on the lookout for one of these. This works out great and would also make a great bar if you ever needed something like that!

Really great idea! It makes a whole lot of sense to do it this way!!! I would follow suit, but my storage is on 3 separate floors! :-( Thank you for sharing, and have a wonderful afternoon!

Great redo! It is the perfect size. Visiting from Seasonal Sundays.
