Artist recycles old Target shopping carts


As I blogged about a couple of months ago, Target recently re-designed their shopping carts to be more ergonomically friendly. And this artist based in Los Angeles seems to have found a way to recycle the old ones: by transforming them into stylish chairs and lamps. I love this idea! What's the saying... "everything old is new again"?

What's the one that still looks like a cart supposed to be? A table? Some sort of stationary cart?

Hi Lola. It's a side table. You can view additional pics on the artist's website (second photo down shows the "table") --
