i have pined after one of these french laundry carts for years.
i envisioned it nestled next to a couch, overflowing with cozy blankets and quilts.
i have found several while antiquing, but never at a reasonable price.
when visiting friends in oregon this summer, they had their kids’ games stored/displayed in a vintage market cart.
i have one of these, but its much newer, but i still thought i’d give it a try when we got home and see if it worked ok for storage, because our current situation of a teetering tower of games up high on a shelf wasn’t working so well for us. can’t imagine why?
when our family was browsing the shops in the downtown of bend, i spotted this old laundromat cart holding signs that were for sale.
but it wasn’t marked with a price.
but! sean really liked it too, so we asked the manager if it was for sale and after some hemming and hawing, we got it!
it holds all the kids’ games perfectly!
but the best part is they can access everything themselves and put them away.
cute and functional = win win!
i adore the tomato-red-with-a-little-bit-of-coral color of the basket and the teal casters are so pretty.
just the perfect punch of color.
and it fits so well next to our couch right by the entry to the playroom.
and already the kids are playing with the games so much more often.
and now i don’t even want a stinkin’ expensive french laundry cart to hold piles of blankets.
unless someone were to give it to me for free ;)
