A friend of ours found this old warehouse cart abandoned in a yard while doing a job.  Knowing that we love to transform old vintage pieces he offered it up and we happily accepted.

It has been sitting in our storage for a few months but we tackled it today: sanding and staining.

This was the cart before:

We removed the handles (which involved some sawing), and sanded the top.

We had something similar to this cart on hold at a local vintage store but it was on the very high end of our budget for a coffee table.

I am loving that we were able to recreate a similar piece by repurposing what would likely have went into the garbage.
