5 Ways to Use a Rolling Cart

The mobile rolling cart is a genius invention. It allows you to move your most used items around the home for the ultimate convenience! We’ve seen our fair share of mobile craft carts, but today we’re sharing 5 new ways to style the Lexington rolling cart.

1. Coffee Station Cart

Our friends at The Merrythought are after our own hearts with this Coffee Station Cart. It’s perfect for a small kitchen or to roll wheel out when you’re having a get-together.

2. Mobile Flower GardenFlower Garden Cart flower cart

A Pumpkin and a Princess used the Lexington cart as a mobile garden that allows her to bring her house plants out for a little sunshine from time to time.

3. Kitchen Cart

Amy from Homey Oh My thought up the next 3 uses for this rolling cart. Another small kitchen hack is using this cart as a mini pantry for produce and snacks, as well as a space for any knick knacks or extra dishes that would otherwise take up precious counter space.

4. Nightstand

Another small space solution is the bathroom cart. Use it to store your toiletries or as a shower caddy.
