A Prim Makeover

Ok, where have I been, I know, I know....but if you've seen any of my recent posts on Facebook, you'll know exactly where I've been and what I've been up to...

If you don't know, you'll just have to wait for the next post where I'll tell ya all about it! ;)

In the meantime, I had to share this prim makeover/project.

On one of my past trips to New York I picked up this quite handsome, antique dolly. No, not a dolly as in a doll, but the old kind that you would wheel around carrying your large bags of grain in. (Sorry, I don't have a picture of it "untweaked").

I loved the printing that was still on the side of the hard worn, wooden handles...

I loved those big industrial type wheels....

I just thought it was in the truck he(dolly) went along with the kids! ;)

Had a few ideas, but didn't have the time to do any tweaking, until this past weekend....

I took out my former slate coffee table, and moved that adorable dolly in that metal/slate coffee tables place.

Then I had my husband cut a few very old 1" thick barn boards for shelving/tray space to hold some lovelies...

It is perfect for what I was envisioning him to be...just what I had in mind...this ain't no ordinary antique dolly, this is the very new/old coffee table.

Good Day my Friends...


  1. I love it! and if my daughter saw it she would be wanting one to do the exact same thing in her home! She loves to use something out side the box for decorating and creating works of art on.
    Very nice find Tarrah!

  2. Love your new "old" coffee table. Looks wonderful and such a great idea.
