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!
