This is my dad.
(and my little sister Lynette)
About a year ago I bought my dad a little TV dinner wood table.
On our last visit I noticed it's trashed.
So I thought for Father's Day next month I'd build him a rolling couch cart.
The basic plan came from Ana White.
I didn't follow her dimensions or the plan really, as I was using scraps I had already.
Basically you can pull it up to eat on, slide it under the couch to hold snacks or a laptop, or next to the couch as a side table.
I used scraps from other projects to make the cart.
I chose to use ball casters to help it roll better on carpet.
Because each piece was a different material, I knew I had to paint it and just went with basic white.
1 coat primer, 2 coats semi gloss latex paint.
I thought I'd stock the shelves with containers of straws, napkins, mints, toothpicks, etc since I think it will be where he eats while he watches baseball this summer.
Happy Father's Day next month Dad!
