Furniture Cart - Part Two

I had a request to see the top of the furniture cart that I worked on yesterday.  I was so excited about showing off the hardware that I didn't think about the top of the cart.

I used Golden Pecan stain on the sides because I didn't want to cover the original stamped letters.  I used a darker, Provencial stain, on the top of the cart.

And yes, this cart is very similar to the one sold by Restoration Hardware:

Furniture Factory Cart

One difference is the wheels - my cart has the more desirable "flower petal" wheels.  Oh, and the Restoration Hardware cart is on sale for $795 + shipping!

Last question - yes it is VERY heavy.  The wheels and hardware are cast iron.  It rolls very well though. Thanks for the interest in my latest project!

You lucky girl to have one of those carts. I saw some when I was antiquing in Asheville, NC a couple of months ago. Those make a great coffee table. Yours looks great.
