The Tea Cart


Such a cute little tea cart, but it had seen better days. I knew just what it needed to give it a new life! There were TONS listed for sale on craigslist that just sat there unloved that looked just like this.

If you don't like painted wood, there are a ton of others out there for you to buy and love, but it

    Lovely. Is that a picture frame on top? It is the cherry on the sundae.

    Very Nice redo. A piece to be proud of and enjoy. I have that stencil. Haven't used it yet. You just encouraged me. Thank you.
