Rustic paint cart furniture revamp with Fusion and Old Sign Stencils

If you are a painter type, you already know how valuable paint storage is.

But I needed a little more than just extra storage. I actually desired more of a paint cart to not only store, but to also cart around as desired…

The before

.

Enter… this beat up cupboard.

Oh, I remember the day well. My son was horrified that I wanted to pick this old cupboard up off the curb! But after bribing him with a slurpee, he promptly loaded it into the back of my truck, and off we went!

Where it sat for several years in my garage. Oops.

Until my new paint cart brainstorm hit of course! And this is why we hoard, yes?

Rummaging through the depths of the garage pile, I pulled this beat up beauty out with quite the unique vision in mind! This would ultimately become a rustic paint cart of my dreams! Antiques style of course!

Here’s what I did:

Fusion and Old Sign Stencils

 

How-to:

.

1. The old cupboard was cleaned with soap and water, the lightly sanded to prep.

Since the cupboard was already painted, it was the perfect candidate for a repaint… plus! You wait and see…

How to colour block

.

2.  Sections of the cupboard were taped off to create a colour blocked effect.

Each panel on the cupboard was taped off, then painted in a different colour, as if various pieces were used to build the cupboard.

My choice of paint for this project is Fusion Mineral Paint, which is a matte finish high quality furniture paint that does not require a primer and has built-in top coat. The coverage is excellent and the product goes a LONG way!

3. Each painted panel section was stenciled as if chunks of signs were outfitted together.

Note: Route 66 is no longer available, however any other stencil design from HERE would do the same thing.

Achieving a chalkboard look

.

Isn’t that a fun look?!

The Coal Black side was achieved by painting the panel, then placing masking tape on the top, pulling it off before the paint was dry. It left a really cool chalkboard look!

The stenciling was done with Champlain with a VERY dry brush so the lettering had a chalk like effect. It turned out very realistic!

My favorite type of stencil brushes are dome-shaped. Click below to visit a few!

Try this chippy effect!

.
This chippy effect above the lock was achieved in a very unique way:

  1. Paint Algonquin over a sample surface
  2. Apply masking tape over the painted area while still wet
  3. Remove masking tape, then stick it to a desired painted surface to transfer the paint (this was over top of Champlain).

Voila! Instant distressed without needing a sander!

Glazing to antique the look

.
4. Glaze painted areas where more of an antique look is desired. Apply glaze with a brush, then wipe off the excess.

Inside the cupboard, most of it was painted in Champlain, with some sections in Algonquin.

This is the creamiest paint I’ve ever used. The coverage is excellent, with no primer nor topcoat needed. YES!

But the antiquing glaze is magic! It has a VERY long open time, so you don’t have to worry about it drying on you too quickly. I was working outdoors on a very warm day and had no issues.

You just brush it on, then wipe it off with a cloth.

One section was glazed at a time, with an immediate effect. The glaze really tones down the brightness, adding a very authentic old time look, as if the area has aged for years.

I got a little braver as I went along, and started antiquing the cabinet more heavily. You’ll see what I mean soon.

Adding casters

5.

5. Add full swivel casters to the bottom of the cart.

Next up, full swivel casters were attached to the bottom of the cupboard found at last weekend’s flea market.

I love using full swivel casters so moving a piece is completely effortless!

However casters that move one direction only are great for pieces where you wish to move the piece in one direction only.

Building the cart top

6. .

6. Enhance and enlarge the workspace of the top of the cabinet with a reclaimed wood top, built like a tray.

The cupboard needed more work space on top, so a few old reclaimed fence boards did the trick.

The reclaimed wood boards were cut to desired length, then joined together with two support boards to create a tray-like top that can be lifted and carried around if desired.

The two support boards were positioned to hug the top of the cabinet, holding the top in place once on the cupboard.

About the Antiques stencil

.

Next up,  Antiques was stenciled across the top of the boards for a ‘gathered over time’ theme.

You’ll soon see why!

Antiques | Funky Junk's Old Sign Stencils

The Antiques stencil also comes with a strip of interchangeable numbers so you can change the date to something that has significance to you!

Fun, right?! However, today I left it as 1901.

My son would have likely agreed the beat up cupboard was indeed that old, so there’s that…

The stenciled top

.

Antiques was stenciled in Fusion’s Coal Black for a stamped crate look. Isn’t it cool?!

Note: The stencil will leave bridging gaps on the letters like THIS Antiques mirror project does.

The above sample was done without bridging. It’s easy to do. Stencil first, then once the stencil is removed, carefully fill in the bridging gaps with the same brush while taping off edges you don’t want to paint.

The finished paint cart!

.

And then it was time to roll the finished cart into place in my photo studio, then fill it up with my favorite tools, and paint supplies from Fusion Mineral Paint and a special place to hang Old Sign Stencils!

Here’s how I did that…

Paint brush storage

.

Each panel on the paint cart was given a different duty. The chalkboard-look end became the perfect place to hang paint brushes from simple nails.

If you use really long nails, you can double or triple up the hanging area as well.

See those two fat round brushes on the upper right? They are Fusion Mineral Paint’s all natural bristle brush and boy do they hold paint!

Stencil storage

.
No space on this cupboard was wasted.

The back of the paint cart was the perfect spot to hang stencils for easy access and storage!

An antique yardstick was attached along the back of the cupboard, then screws and nails added to become the stencil hanging hooks.

To hang up the stencils, I punched holes with a paper hole puncher at one corner of each stencil that easily clear the screws and nails used. It makes grabbing them a snap!

Tool storage

.
This side of the cupboard got a Farmers’ Market fence board sign and a whole lotta hooks of all kinds to hang up tools galore!

And this is why you may also wish to collect rusty junk in the form of door pulls, S-hooks, plus. Random productivity at its best!

The top

.
For a dash of authenticity, an old label was attached to the Antiques sign top along the bottom left.

I have NO idea what this  Burroughs metal label is from, but it sure is cool!

Added hardware details

Some old hinges were hung to resemble having removed doors off the cabinet. Junk jewelry you know…

The bottom shelf was the perfect size to house a good stash of paint. An old green metal toolbox was perfect for storing small paint tester pots.

And yes, you are seeing them upside down so the colours can be viewed easier.

With the top shelf of the paint cart outfitted with scraps of wood for stencilling and brush storage in mason jars, this paint cart is ready to (literally) roll!

I love how this rustic paint cart with Fusion and Old Sign Stencils paint cart can be wheeled around to accompany the farm table I have in my photo studio. It is the perfect extra storage companion done in style! Who else needs one of these?

It’s such a fun piece to look at that’s super productive too!

  1. This looks way too good to work in a workshop. I definitely need one of these. Probably more than one actually.
    It looks wonderful and so you!

  2. This stencil cart is AWESOME Donna… I want to make one for myself now. I love all the hooks and places to hang things! Wow and your pictures are the best!

  3. Laurentien would be my first choice to use on exterior shutters of the home I’m hoping to buy soon.

  4. I love Champlain and Inglenook. I have the perfect cabinet to put Champlain on the outside and Inglenook on the inside.

  5. This is one of the coolest projects you’ve done in a long time…I love every detail! thanks for the tutorial and great pics! If only I could find me a cabinet similar…sigh. You are super talented!!

  6. All the colors are great but Homestead Blue is the color I’d paint a little stool I have for my new grandson. I love how the paint is pure and safe, esp. for children’s use. I love making personalized things and so I think he might need a coordinating little book case. The multi-surface feature is such a bonus! Your cabinet turned out pretty snazzy!

  7. I Love, love, love the FF Red color! I have an old tool box just begging to be painted that color!

  8. Love it! But then where is the fun of looking for everything I need! Using a butter knife for a screwdriver, a toothbrush as a stencil brush and the back of my shoe as a hammer….seriously, this is darling and it makes me want to go out and spruce up an old cabinet of my own! I’m sure there is one or maybe two in the old shed somewhere:-)

  9. Ooo, love how your table turned out and I’d love to win some Fusion Paint. So,
    1. Favorite color Algonquin – I’d use it on my dining room table and chairs
    2.ctwin1b following Fusion paint
    3. ctwin1b following Funky Junk Interiors
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  10. love the color Laurentien, also posted on Pinterest “……….love your stencils!

  11. I love Champlain and I’d use it to paint my rustic computer desk that I’m planning on building soon. I’d also use it to paint signs.

  12. Loving the Buttermilk Cream color. I do projects of all sorts, so who knows where I would use it.

  13. I love your idea of punching a hole in the corner of stencils and hanging them up. Definitely going to have to try that one! Your cart is amazing! Love everything about it.

  14. So awesome! I would love a bunch of carts like this in my workroom – sounds like a great way to store and pull out only what you need for each project. Plus, it looks so cool! Thanks so much for sharing!

  15. I am pretty much in love with all the colors, but it’s a really tight race between the Champness and Homestead Blue. I follow both you and Fusion Mineral Paint. My Instagram user name is @froufrugal. Love your bench!

  16. Love your highly functional cart and I really hope that my local Fusion retailer decides to carry your stencils!!

    my favorite color – right now is Buttermilk Cream

  17. I love the color Prairie Sunset! I’m just starting down this road of refurbishing/re-junking/re-loving . . . since I’ve lived my whole life in the prairies the warm yellow tone of this color appeals to me! I’d use it on a small side table for a punch of color. Now to find that table . . .

  18. I follow Fusion Mineral Paint on Instagram as Rosie_Melanie. There are no retailers in Saskatchewan that carry their products but I’m going to Alberta in August, I’ll get some in Medicine Hat!

  19. These are great colors. I choose Casement. I would paint a bedside
    cabinet with it to help give the room a fresher cleaner look.

  20. Well, Donna, I hardly know where to begin. Your mastery of combining piles of junk into this functional, cool, painted beauty is mind-boggling. The use of Fusion colors to simulate even more old finds, the tray, the stencil storage, the stencil when you use half! Awesome. Now I need some of your stencils!

  21. Donna – this is gorgeous! I absolutely love how you can take the ordinary and turn it into something eclectic and beautiful!

    Pinned. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • haha, NO!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I try and break projects up into daySSSS if I have the leeway. One day I may clean the cab, next day I may paint it, the next day I may shoot it, then the next day build the blog post. It really all depends how involved each project is. This one was quite involved.

      The longest part is deciding what to do. Once that’s decided, I could definitely belt this out in a day now. But not the first one! ๐Ÿ™‚

      p.s. all those days don’t mean all day long… just a few hours here and there.

  22. This is just fantabulous, Donna…I LOVE how functional it is…yet it still looks sharp! Now I just need to find me a little cupboard sitting on the side of the road. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, also meant to say, I absolutely head-over-heels LOVE the new stencil and especially love that you give us the option of stenciling our own date in! I’m going to have to order this one…but first, I must use the Bingo stencil so I can justify another purchase! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. 1. Coal Black is my favourite colour and I have used it to paint all of my found pieces for my bedroom set (all except the bed frame). I love how it goes on and how durable it is. Plus I dry brush to get a really unique swirly effect over chalk paint!

    2. I follow fusion mineral paint under the instagram account sad_rosie. It is an instagram for my dog Rosie who always looks so sad.

    3. I now follow Funky Junk on instagram under the name sad_rosie. I have an awesome Idea to make a paint cart out of some mini bookshelves I found in the dumpster! I can’t wait.

  24. I have a dresser sitting in my garage that I want to paint red eventually. Fort York Red would fit the bill perfectly.

  25. I love the Buttermilk Cream! It’s the perfect color to paint my beautiful vintage french bed – the kind with the curved headboard & footboard.

  26. Donna,
    You never cease to amaze me with your posts.
    Where DO you get all you original ideas??
    Wonderful, keep them coming!!

    • Thanks Mary! This one just brewed from my own head. I think of a need, then make it happen with something I have. It’s easier to come up with when you need it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. since i started redoing my bath and bedroom then had to have back surgery i am chomping at the bit to get this mess finished greys,white and pops of color, i would love to try damask to redo my desk and shelves thanks xx

  28. So many lovely colours, but I think I like laurentien best. Like that this is a Canadian paint company!

  29. Upper Canada Green will look great as feedback stripes in my newly finished garage. Next to the salvaged barn roof being used on the lower half of walls.

  30. I love Renfrew Blue. I have a really great mid-century modern set with water stains that is begging for this!

  31. This is amazing Donna – I would LOVE to have this!! What a great way to showcase all of your fabulous stencils too – makes me want to run out and buy them all! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  32. I have already used Fusion Mineral Paint and I was/am very happy with the results and ease of use.

    The colours I would love to try in the future would be Sterling along with a cross between Champness and Renefrew Blue which I would custom mix.

    Personally, I would use this brand of paint on nearly anything I would be painting including: old enamel pieces, garden accessories and assorted furniture, as well as, miscellaneous dรฉcor items to unify a palette in a room.

    BTW – I was really impressed when I learned Fusion Mineral Paint was a Canadian company.

    That’s all for now, Nancy

  33. My favorite Fusion color is Fort York Red, and I have an old wooden bench that I’d love to paint that color!

  34. This is so wonderful! I love the fact that it contains all your tools, brushes, stencils and moves! Now, I need to find me an old cupboard…that’s just an amazing idea! I have a strong desire for warm yellows…so Prairie Sunset would be a color that I just would need…and, I’m thinking I would do some rustic cutting boards in the color! Thanks for the help!

  35. Love, Love, Love your Rustic Paint Cart, Donna,
    I love all the fusion paint colors. But I would choose Inglenook or Laurentiene
    And I would paint a chair

  36. I’m thinking the Liberty Blue or Champness would be a good color to brighten up a little outdoor bench. Getting tired of our green/brown/tan theme that’s been going on outside for awhile now!

  37. I’m already following Fusion and I started following you….

    I thought I might like the color Champness… until I saw the Seaside in the special colors…. I would love to give it a try on a Potting Bench I’m trying to dress up…

    Thanks for a chance to win,
    Faith

  38. What a fun cabinet….love all the funky hooks and more.
    Paint color – I’d love to have a go at Bedford for my guest room furniture. Going for a bit of driftwood coloring to accent against the blue walls. It would be a great product to try during my designated project summer.

  39. Love your paint cart! I love the Homestead Blue Fusion paint and would use it on the legs and apron of our wood planked dining table.

  40. Would love to use the limestone color to paint a dresser and and end table and give them a shabby chic life.

  41. Aubusson! I have an old rickety rocking chair that will stand out on any porch for those long warm summer nights!

  42. entry for fusion paint
    Favorite fusion color –Prairie Sunset
    Instagram name –mommielaura

    Excited to try this paint !!

  43. Love the Inglenook! Just redoing the house in soft treys and crisp light blues. Need this to redo a sideboard for my dining room

  44. Inglenook is my favourite color right now! Would love to do a great accent piece for my loving room!

  45. My favorite color (of many) is Seaside and I’d use it to “summer up” an Adirondack chair on my workshop porch. I’d love to win some Fusion Mineral paint–haven’t tried it yet!

  46. I guess I’m addled this morning–the color I love best is Inglenook, not Seaside! I guess I made that up because that’s what it reminds me of! AND I love the paint cabinet you concocted it! I’m going into my workshop right now and start foraging for hooks and hinges and bolts to make my own!

  47. using my Instagram name to post for 2nd chance to win fusion paint–Thanks for the opportunity!

  48. Made in Canada! Love this paint! I’d love to try the Algonquin or the Buttermilk… but that Coal Black is also lovely and moody too! Thanks for the head’s up about this product! Off to check them out now ๐Ÿ™‚ – Erin

  49. I think I’s like to try Bedford for a beat-up cedar chest that needs a little make-over. I love your cart creation – such a great use of a curb-side find!

  50. LOVE coal black and casement! I would use these on an antique style dog grooming sign outside our business!

  51. I am a follower on fusion paints. I love 2 colors. Coal Black. And Fort York Red. I collect primitive decor and am painting some of my things black and red. These are perfect colors for this project. Thanks so much for the chance to win the paints.

  52. I am following Fusion paints. I love Funky Junk on Facebook. I love these paints. I collect primitive decor. There are 2 colors I would love to have and win on your giveaway for my decor. I am painting some pieces of my primitive decor. I love the Coal Black and I love the Fort York Red. Thanks so much Y’all.

  53. I follow Fusion mineral paints and funky junk on Instagram. I would love to win two different colors. Not greedy but I collect primitive decor and I am going to paint a few pieces of decor I have. These 2 colors will work perfectly. I love the Coal Black and the Fort York Red. I thank y’all so very much for he chance to win

  54. Renfrew Blue…..but I haven’t seen it in person yet.
    I used the Ash on my bathroom cabinets and LOVE it

  55. Visited Fusion Mineral Paint website and Champness would look great on some old shutters I want to install on my porch. Following them and you now on Instagram (MrsRhinebarger)! Thanks for the chance to enter!

  56. I love inglenook. I have a chest I want to do OR I might paint my dining room suite. Actually, I love all these colors and hope to eventually use all of them!This is the best paint I have ever used…without a doubt!!

  57. Well, I thought I wanted Coal Black but now I’m leaning toward the exact opposite: Champlain for a double chair bench I want to make for my bedroom! Thanks, Donna!!!

  58. I like the Champness and Liberty blues, but all of the colors look great. It’s cool to have such a variety so depending on the project, you can find what you need.
    I have a round, pedestal dining table and four chairs that need a facelift. This is what I will use on them this summer, but the color is still up in the air….

  59. Inglenook on a 1930’s 1940’s One Piece School Desk.
    Preserve some of the oak and paint the rest. ๐Ÿ™‚
    I really love that colour — seems like a great neutral type colour to me.

  60. 1) Fusion Mineral Paint: fav is red! Project; old 20’s dresser, drawers removed, shelves added, a lovely distressed top, casters added ( oh yeah!)……wala kitchen island. Yes, all inspired by you and Beck4Beyond. You guys keep my head spinning.

  61. LOVE IT!!! Thanks for the inspirationโ€ฆI have an old 2-level shelf needing to be revivedโ€ฆnow I knowโ€ฆ.and the vintage tone of Fusion’s Homestead Blue will do the job!!! Andโ€ฆthe tape treatment–BRILLIANT!!! I have used material before, but love how the peeled tape looks!

  62. I’m here for the Fusion contest, but I have to say I LOVE your site! I’ll be back to check it out for sure!

    My favorite Fusion color right now (because who can pick just one?) is Coal Black because I’m getting ready to paint my front exterior door this color. I’m excited and a little nervous!

  63. I would LOVE to paint a dresser that I have had around for quite some time, but I never knew what to do with it! I would love to use a combo of ash and inglenook!

  64. Would love to try the Inglenook. Just experimented with the Fusion Transfer Gel on my father’s breadbox. Such fun and it turned out nicely. I could spend $150 almost instantly with Fusion!!

  65. You betcha I’d love to win! I’m following Funky Junk and Fusion Paint on Instagram (I finally set up an account just a couple of weeks ago – refreshliving1) and I would love to use Homestead Blue on a table base I am refinishing!! Thanks for the chance to win!

  66. Would love to put Champness on a little, old, in-need-of-love table I bought for $1 at the junk store. Love your junk table made from a cupboard!

  67. I LOVE Champness! That is in the color rsnge of what I am using in my craft room to make it not so boring. I have a reclaimed bookshelf/hhutch that really needs some work. I would love to see this color on it!

  68. I think that buttermilk is just about the most gorgeous colour ever! I think I would paint anything with it! I love it and can’t wait to try it

  69. So many colours!!
    Prairie Sunset is drawing me in. With it’s bright & sunny personality I’m certain it would add joy to a room. Always a fan of black & cream, Coal & Buttermilk are just right.
    Algonquin though, is an always right “go to” for every style of furniture in any room of the house! So many ideas running through my head now!!

  70. I love the Damask color. I’ve been thinking of trying to paint something lavender and Damask is a beautiful shade! I would paint a piece of furniture for my antique mall booth space with it!

    Tania

  71. I would love to try some coal black! I have an old beat up dresser that I would love to upcycle! ๐Ÿ™‚

  72. I have a couple of twin beds that I need to paint. I would love to use the Buttermilk Cream on them.

    I love your paint cart. Now I just have to find an old cabinet!

  73. I love Sterling…I think I would use it to glam up a set of nesting tables I have. Thanks for the chance to win some!

  74. I really like Bedford or Inglenook. I think I would use them on the back of a bookcase I have, also on a large pot in my entryway.

  75. I love all your projects, so cool. I would love to paint my bathroom vanity in “Upper Canada Green”. Please pick me!

  76. I would get Champlain for an old dresser I picked up at the thrift store and waiting for me to paint it! : D

  77. Already a Funky Junk Interiors Instagram follower…….bugmom2
    I’m ready to paint my bathroom vanity.

  78. I love Renfrew Blue ~ it would look awesome on the legs of my 200 year old farm table that I have been going to renew for the past 7 years .. ha ha! ……. all the colors are so luscious I would be in paint heaven with 7 pints!

  79. Limestone. I would use it to paint a beautiful China Cabinet that was left to me from my mother who died when i was 9 years old. It would be absolutely beautiful.

  80. I really like Damask and think it would look wonderful on my grandparents first bedroom set from 1929.

  81. I love love love:
    Coal Black , Upper Canada Green, Casement
    It is hard to decide! They colors are so rich!
    I am painting a coffee table that my father in law made in the 70s. I also have an old door that I want to use for a game table in my playroom.

  82. I CAN’T CHOOSE 1!!!!
    Casement… Sterling… Champlaign… I want to try at least 5 of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

  83. My favorite is the casement color. Would love to re-do my dresser that I’ve had since I was a kid. I’m now a big kid and bought a house so it’s time for an update.

  84. I Love the ” Upper Canada Green ” , I’m obsessed with old ladders lately so I would paint one that color and add chicken wire on the back, for a cute herb pot holder and trellis.

  85. I would paint my quilt rack Fort York Red and a plant stand plus another plant stand (stool) to match it.

  86. I am doing over my porch and I think that the Upper Canada Green would be a perfect color for several “rescue” pieces that I have to refinish. I love your website and all of your terrific ideas. They cause my brain to swirl (in a good way) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  87. I’ve used a few different colours of Fusion, but the one I’m dying to try is Renfrew Blue! I think it’d look fabulous on a little three-tier shelf I have waiting in the wings!!!

  88. This is like a piece of art work, I have to gush. The details are amazing from the painting methods to the variety of hardware you used as knobs and hooks for hanging. I have a small cheapy rolling cart and it could use a bigger table top. Thanks for the tip on that, too!!

  89. Hi Donna, I’m torn as to a favorite, both the Laurentien and Prairie Sunset put me into painters paradise. The Ceramic green is pretty sweet too!

  90. This is simply fantastic! I love how you took the item you found on the side of the road and made it look like it was pieced together with bits of wood from different projects. It turned out so, so great!

  91. We have update our kitchen with a ‘farmhouse’ feel and this looks just the size kitchen island I’ve been looking for, rustic a (sans Route 66 for our purposes). I love the rustic feel and the multi-purpose storage. The interior storage area would be ideal for my stand mixer, crock pot and other kitchen essentials. Love the vintage looking honging implements and the hinges! Great job. Now, where can I find a cast off cabinet for our kitchen? Casters are perfect for pushing out of the way too! Gotta hit the Salvation Army and other second hand stores in our area!

  92. I love it, but I also feel like a proud Momma, and I had nothing to do with your success! I love the cart, the paint, and the stencils make me think I can do this.

    Thanks, for not just the inspiration I get from you and your blog and all the post, but you have impowered me with so many tutorials that my house is thanking you!

    Keep up the great work.

  93. Amazing, absolutely fantastic. I love the style. Its amazing what you can do with paint. I love transforming furniture, although looking at this, mine is nothing special LOL… you really have an eye for detail. Love your site xx

  94. Donna, The cart is amazing!! I surely wish i had one, but I think I’d use it as a beverage cart on my patio. Yes! It’s that good!! Thanks so much for linking to Friday’s Furniture Fix…. Susie

  95. This is one of my favorite projects of yours… I love how random it is but works so well for organizing your stencils. Truly a creative project! ๐Ÿ™‚

  96. I know this is an old post, but had to come in and tell you how much I love this.

    we have a lol at our house. My husband say’s I want to put castors on everything. He said I could keep a castor company in business.

    I tell him, I do it for my old age when I cannot heft stuff around to more it. I can just roll it.

    Thanks for sharing your technique on how you refinished this piece. It turned out fantastic.

  97. Donna, where do you come up with all these great ideas? i want you imagination and creativity. thank you so much for the inspiration. I love you style.
