Last summer, I picked up a microwave cart at Goodwill for $1.00. Yes, a dollar! It was nothing special, just a cheapy microwave cart on wheels.
I had big plans for repurposing this one though. My daughter and her friends love having a lemonade stand at the entrance to our neighborhood. So I planned to transform the ugly microwave cart into a lemonade stand.
I gathered bright yellow spray paint, chalkboard spray paint, a cute thrift store sign and some Gorilla Glue. But then I thought…why should I have all the fun? 😉 I asked my daughter and her friends if they would like to make it.
They spray painted the back of the cart with chalkboard paint and decorated it. So much cuter than I could have done. The front of the microwave cart with the doors/shelves is where they store all of their cups/plates/napkins and cash box.
Didn’t it turn out cute?
And who could resist buying lemonade from these young ladies on a hot summer day??? Apparently no one…they made over $40 in two hours. 🙂
