French Painted Tea Cart

I have had this tea cart sitting around for a while. There are always those projects that get "filtered" back in my rooms. When I get a lot of furniture and I don't know what I am going to do with it yet, it becomes part of the decor.



This little piece was charming and I felt it needed a little something extra. So I pulled it out from being a makeshift side table and began painting.


I found a graphic from the one and only Graphic Fairy and added it to the drop leaf. I used a projector for this one.
I love the way it turned out. . I did add a little distressing to it.  Distressing helps hide the imperfections in the lettering.

I will be away for a few days as my daughter and I will being taking a trip to New York City to see a show! This is her favorite place to be since she is a theatre major. As you can see we have been there before.....we never get tired of the hustle and bustle!



We are very excited and I promise to take pictures so I can share with you all!

Hope your year has started off right for you! See you soon!!!

So pretty! My mother used to have a tea cart like this, but it's gone now and she can't remember what she did with it! I wish *I* had it!
