Chevron Tea Cart

I love to have a tea cart and when I found it in Craigslist I grab the opportunity to take it. To be honest not just one, I got two. 

I decided to transform this tea cart based on my design like. It's in great condition. Wheels are moving smoothly. It's slim and "leaves" can go up or down easily. It has a small drawer. If you'd like to know how I change her look, please come along with me...

First, I sanded everything. Once done, I wiped and cleaned everything to remove the dust.

To easily paint it, I removed both leaves, some hardware, and the big wheels.

I primed it twice and painted it twice.

I placed all the pattern. I used the same procedure I made in my screen print upcycle pillow case here. I made sure that all the patterns are pressed down to the table. I cover the sides with newspaper to avoid any paint to go through.

I sprayed a light coat first until I covered everything. I sprayed twice. Once the paint was dry, I removed the pattern. If you'd like to avoid any retouch after the spray paint, I suggest that you use a painter's tape.

Here's I came out with.

I spray painted the caster wheels silver.

This tea cart is great to use in entry way, porch, kitchen, side table, or serving in dining room. 

What can you say? Did I made the right decision to transform it? Another tea cart is coming out soon. Keep visiting.

  15. Lydia let him know in no uncertain terms that she expected to buy the car for the price on the
    sticker. Before you purchase a used car, it is very important to not
    forget that there was an earlier owner so you must get information about the history of the car.

    Take into account that all the mentioned techniques charge
