$5 Garden Cart Transformation in Fork York Red

June 28, 2017 2 Comments

My mother-in-law nabbed me this ugly old kitchen cart for $5 and I couldn't wait to use it as a plant display on our front porch. I loved how it turned out!

To achieve this look, I first sanded down the top with my orbital sander.

Next I stained the top of the cart using Fusion Mineral Paint's Stain Oil in Natural
Then I painted the cart with two coats of Fort York Red, the BEST vibrant red color.

I only used two tester containers for the whole cart.

I absolutely love the finished project!  With two young kids, one of whom is medically fragile, we are home a lot and these flowers really cheer me up!

Priming can serve two functions: to get a surface ready to accept paint or to block out color on a surface when you're making a dramatic color change (or if you're worried about bleed through from wood.)
