Rolling Cart

Turn a utility sink into a cart for serving and storage.

1. Lightly sand a 2- x 2-foot sheet of plywood. Prime and paint the sink, sink legs, and plywood; let each coat dry. Apply a coat of polyurethane; allow to dry.

2. From two 1 x 2 x 4 boards, cut two 14 1/2-inch-long pieces and two 19-inch-long pieces. On the underside of the plywood, mark a 17 1/2- x 19-inch rectangle positioned 2 1/2 inches from the edges on three sides and 4 inches from the back. Lay the cut 1 x 2 pieces to fit the marked rectangle. Screw the boards into the plywood so that the assembly will fit securely in the sink.

3. Using a 1/2-inch drill bit, drill holes in the leg bottoms. Insert casters and secure with flat 3/8-inch washers and hex nuts. Snap the legs into the sink.

4. Measure and mark spots for the drawer pulls. They should be centered and 3 to 4 inches from the top edge on the front and back sides of the sink. Predrill holes and attach drawer pulls with screws. Insert the drain plug in the sink.via Lowescreativeideas
