Store display Wine Cart Makeover!

Good Morning my Beauties! I am having difficulty with this
post after the tragic weekend our nation has experienced.
So I will keep it it short and sweet.

This was a store wine display that I had picked up at
Goodwill for $5.
It sat in my garage for a while and I just happened to finally get around to it this past week.

I had made this stencil for an old box a while back and I decided to use it on the wine cart.
I had thought about painting it and distressing it and instead decided to leave it in its
Rustic Wine Crate feeling state. I stenciled the removable tray
and sanded off the old display name on the side and used part of the stencil to do the sides.

It sold the first day I brought it into the shop. I found out the guy that bought it,
is going to use it as a TV stand. At first I was kinda miffed that he was going to cover up the tray part, but then I thought...What a pretty cool way to display a T.V. 

Now on a personal note, I will also keep this short and sweet. I read a great article from The Idea Room 
She is more articulate than I and so I will let you read it if you want to.
The day the shootings happened all I kept doing was playing "what the world needs now is Love sweet Love" It calmed me, it calmed my heart. All I keep thinking is "With everything that we can do, the Biggest SMALL thing that we can do is LOVE"...its really that simple.
Go out and spread LOVE!
Please have a BEAUTIFUL day!

That looks amazing! I can't believe you only spent $5 on it. It looks like a million bucks now!

That is beautiful, and what a bargain. It is a shame to cover up the tray, maybe the guy who bought it will decide to use it for a beverage cart or something that shows it off, and use something else for his TV. Maybe he will come back and buy another piece from you!

Stopping in to say Marry Christmas my friend! Hugs & Love to you and your family!!

PS-I thought The Idea Room's post was perfection. I wish I was that well spoken.

I love is beauty indeed.

On a sadder note, my heart goes out to the families who lost their loved ones in yet another school shooting. I pray that the families can find some comfort and the strength to get through their heartache and pain!

That is a great makeover. I bet the tv looks really impressive sitting on top!

What a lovely wine cart, Karin--I love your French stenciling and the lovely finish of the wood. I also liked your sentiment at the end of your post, and glad that you found a song that spoke to you in that tough time. Music does have a way of reaching us that plain words sometimes can't, at least I have found that to be true for myself. Happiest of holidays to you!
