Trashed Tea Cart Turned Bar Cart


This old tea cart was found abandoned in the back of a garage. With a good cleaning, some re-glueing and a couple of layers of ASCP, it found a new life as a bar cart in our dining room.
Finished and ready to party!!

This beauty was in pretty rough shape. Nothing some TLC and elbow grease couldn't fix however.

After a thorough cleaning, I applied a couple coats of ASCP in Old Ochre, distressed it and dark waxed  it for an "old world" finish.

The wheels and knobs were painted in Emperors Silk (its the accent colour in my dining room carpet).
