Upgrade your ish: Rose Gold Rolling Cart

1:31:00 PM

I love to DIY things, regardless if I'm worthy of my own HGTV show or not (I'm biased, but I should have one for people who aren't the best at making things). 

So on this "episode" of If I Can Make It, So Can You! I'm going to be upgrading a white rolling cart to a fancier, and prettier rose gold all for only $30.

Rose gold is all the rage right now, but I've been a fan of the color for quite some time. it's just so pretty!

I originally purchased the same rolling cart from Michaels in a teal color to go in my bathroom (post on my newly re-done bathroom to come). I loved it so much that I bought a white one for my bedroom in place of an ugly hand-me-down nightstand. The rose gold version was sold out but I'm pretty handy with a can of spray paint and set out to recreate it on my own.

I bought a Michaels Lexington 3-Tier Rolling Cart and Amazon also has an amazing DecoBros Metal Mesh Rolling Cart, Silver that would work wonderfully as well.

And, of course, you need Metallic Rose Gold Spray from Krylon. For only $4 it is a steal and dries in 15 minutes or less.

Here is the OG for reference. Ew, boring white. No thank you!

Since I live in a townhouse, I did the project on our balcony—which I think is frowned upon but alas. I just put down some brown paper that came in an Amazon package and set the pieces down and got to work. I was so excited to start that I forgot to take photos. 

I was literally amazed at how amazing the Krylon paint covered the original white, it looked like it came in rose gold from the start. Since this spray paint is a primer and paint, there was no need to prime the pieces. 

After it all dried, I put it all together and went over one final time with the spray paint to get any patchy areas. Although you can handle it an hour after painting, I let it dry overnight.

And this is what it looks like with nothing in it—stunning!

With all my bits and bobbles neatly organized it looks even better!

Think you'll try it? Let me know in the comments!
