My entire life, "Mr. Cart" has been a part of my childhood. I've been told that "Mr. Cart" is a brand name. That is what the box said when purchased in the 80's, anyway. Before I was born and after assembled by my father, Mr. Cart worked as a kitchen cart. In my early years, he held toys, dirt, and craft supplies in my room, and until last year, he sat with rusty tools in our shed.
Last year I was moving into my own room as an Resident Assistant, and I felt inspired to make my dorm room feel a bit more like home. Peg boards were popular, and I remembered the rusty companion of my childhood. I also wanted a coffee cart that I could roll into my lounge for hall functions and Bible Study.
Without pictures (So sorry!), here are the steps I took to upgrade Mr. Cart into Monsieur Cart. (Because French is fancier)

I wasn't an expert before this project (I just sort of dove in with no direction or guidance), so I learned a lot of lessons!
Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave any comments, questions, advice, or stories of your own DIY projects.
(P.S. If you plan to take a stab at your own DIY and want to use any of the products I used, please consider using the links on the post. I'll get a little commission to help make more projects like this one. :) )
I'm a resident assistant at my college. Every semester we create new door decorations (or "door decs") for our residents. This semester I wanted to create something really unique and fun. The theme was "Things that roll."
The files included are pngs. They have clear backgrounds, so you can just pop them into your document, add a name over the top, and print!
I hope you enjoy this free download, whether you use it for your own door decorations or another fun project!
