Before & After: Anam's Herringbone Trolley Makeover

Pin it button big

Anam had stored this sad trolley away in the attic for years, paying zero attention to it due to its uninspiring appearance and its loose, broken bottom part. But some attention and paint helped transform the look of this furniture piece, and made it functional, too!

From Anam:

With masking tape I taped the trolley in a herringbone pattern and the bottom part in sort of a chevron pattern, but not quite completely; I wanted it to vary. Then with a can of bright gold spray paint I went over the whole trolley, giving it two coats of gold. I then let it sit and dry for a day.

I kept the original color as I wanted it to peek through the gold. And finally the bottom part of the trolley was attached again with glue. Now the trolley has a new place in our lounge and looks as good as new.

Thank you Anam!
