After.

 Okay, I know those f you that wanted me to leave the wood natural might be a little disapointed, but here is the result of my labor this weekend. (Pardon my photos. The lighting was terrible, and my place is so full of furniture and crafts that I had trouble finding a spot to take the pictures...and I couldn't take pictures on patio, 'coz it was pouring rain outside! I will try taking replacement shots later tonight after work when the rain has hopefully passed.)

Anyway.

I ended up painting the cart a weathered white, although you cannot really see the sanding in these pictures, and I left the brass accents alone, since the patina was so rich and warm......

  Whatcha think?

  10. Loving it now! It's something I would love, so I'm sure it will move on out for ya very soon! Back in the day, when I had my antique mall spaces, my regular customers seemed to love what I loved, and had a hard time parting with...so I usually knew when it was going to be a fast sale! This little cart is wonderful, and could be used for a nursery to (endless ideas really), it's fabulous! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

  13. FAB. U. LOUS! I so appreciate your inspiration. My MIL has promised me her old "tea cart" and I've been trying to imagine different colors on it...creamy white or black...etc. It's great to see your finished project.

  15. I like it too!
    Note to anonymous who was having trouble with the google sign in... I was too until I unchecked "keep signed in". Then it recognized me. Hope that helps.

  16. This looks great--and so much better than the natural wood in this particular case. I don't think the wood was of high quality (was it?) and the paint really ups the quality look of this particular piece. Not all dark wood is great looking. I understand that some liked the grain, but for me, that is not the whole story.

  23. i love it Tracey - this way, it will go with many different decors for whoever purchases it.
    do you have time for one quick question ? did you brush this paint on this one, or use spray paint ? thanks for sharing.

  25. Hi Tracey: The cart turned out really nice. I voiced my opinion to keep the wood natural but it would have probably stood out like a sore thumb with all your other painted goodies. Have a wonderful sale . . . see you on Pinterest!
