Design DIY: IKEA Kitchen Cart Makeover

One of our favorite things about this DIY is you can personalize your cart's accessories according to your needs. Not a big drinker? Skip the bottle opener. Want more storage? Add additional hooks. "EAT" doesn't feel like your thing? Write something else.

Huge thanks to Sibylle at Funkytime for letting us share her project!
