Step 1: Basic Box
Step 2: Wheels
Step 3: Handle and Feet
Step 4: Painting
My daughters room definitely has a color scheme that I had to adhere to. All the furniture is white. The bookshelf had to be white. After a few coats of paint on the cart and the wheels I wanted to add a little color so I painted the hubcaps and the feet purple. Then I painted some ice cream cones on the wheels.
Step 5: Final Assembly
In order to really resemble an ice cream cart it needed an umbrella. I bought a cheap child's umbrella and cut the handle off. Next I mounted an aluminum tube that was just slightly larger then the umbrella shaft to the back of the cart, then just slid the umbrella inside.
The final touch was a small curtain to hide the books when not being used. I used a simple white curtain and ironed on a design with an ice cream cone and my daughter's name.
Once it was all put together I loaded it with books on the top shelf and stuffed animals on the bottom.
Eventually I plan on turning the umbrella into a night light.
