Tea Cart Reveal

Remember this humdrum piece? This one took me longer to do than most because I went through so many spectrums of color trying to find the right one.   I almost did it in red (probably the next one!), but I really wanted more of a garden feel. 

So, without further she is!

I have a lot of sage green paint leftover from painting the cabinets in my mother-in-law's house, but I wanted a little more green to it.  So, I mixed in some Granny Smith Apple green that I had and came up with this refreshing color.  It reminds me of the wall color that you saw a lot of in 1940s and 50s homes. 

It needed something extra, so I went to The Graphics Fairy page for help and found this adorable French Typography here.  Then I gave her a little distressing and a little dark wax to age her up. 

Now she is ready for her next garden party! 

See her at Lucketts!

Footnote:  Our porch is scheduled to get painted in two weeks!

    1. Thank you!! I equally enjoy and love your work, your FB and your blog!!! :) I've been talking to Stephanie about something I'd like for us to get together and do. Once I get Lucketts over this coming weekend, I'll dive into it. Message me if she hasn't given you a heads up. :)

  4. What a pretty little tea cart, Susan! I have been seeing a few of these recently, although I haven't bought one to makeover yet. Years ago I found one that someone was throwing out, rescued it, and made it over for myself. I used it to hold all my creamers and sugars until that collection got out of hand! : ) Love the graphic you used. This would probably be great as a drinks cart indoors and outdoors, too.
