I found this tea cart out in my dad's shed. Any repurposing ideas out there? I have a couple of "tea for two" sets that I wouldn't mind displaying on this, but I'm not really thrilled with the wood or the gold rims on the wheels. I would love some suggestiions. Thank you!

I really like the idea of painting everything but the top & handle, similar to how Mary
painted her table. I plan to redo a set of French style tables like hers!
Having tried several of the above methods to strip layers of wallpaper in our 5400 sf/160
yr-old house, I highly recommend using a Wagner 705 power steamer. You should be able to find a good used model on eBay for under $50 including s/h, & can always sell it when you're finished. The 'paper tiger' is the tool referred to above, but you won't need one with the steamer--unless the paper has been painted & won't allow the steam to penetrate.
