Vintage Tea Cart

There is nothing better than being able to go yard selling with my mom, especially when i am quick enough to spot a great find before she does.  In this case my mom spotted this vintage tea cart at a sale where all proceeds were going towards a family raising support for their son's adoption AND she bought it for me.  This was a win-win-win!  The tea cart is in amazing shape and the original color was a dull bronze.

After cleaning it up, i wrapped the wheels in plastic bags to avoid the paint.

Then i chose the most bold color of spray paint that i could find: Rust-Oleum's Key Lime!

I love the way it turned out and can't wait to use it!
Happy Spring Everyone!
Linking up today with Bits of Splendor


  1. I love the way this turned out!! The key lime was the perfect choice and what a handy piece to have on your patio or deck whatever the case may be.

    I"m going to keep my eyes out for one of these when yardsales start in my area. I'd love to copy this upscaling. Mary
