I saw this Robin's egg blue vintage go-kart and just knew it had to come home with me.  It just screamed "make me into something fabulous!"  I found the 2 metal metal crates on the same shopping expedition.  It took some figuring, but I ended up using "U" bolts to secure the crates to the go-kart.  I had to shim one of the crates on the top because they were not exactly the same height.  I used some of my treasured 100+ yr old farmhouse wood for the top of the table. 

I am taking the table to the shop for our April once a month sale.  I'm starting to chicken out as I post this, thinking the table would be perfect for MY patio!  It seems all of the really fabulous creations end up at the shop....maybe....this one will stay home!
