Before & After: Transformed Tea Cart

It is the best feeling when you come across a great item at the flea market! I found this awesome mid-century tea cart at the 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington, IL last month. The round shape and original lucite wheels are what I love most about this piece. The chipped black paint and rose etched glass...not so much. It needed some TLC and I was hoping after getting it spruced up that it would be a great addition to my back deck. 

BEFORE:



IN PROGRESS:
After sanding down the clumpy paint job that was on the cart. A HUGE thanks to my dad for his help with the not-so-fun paint stripping and sanding portion of this project! 


AFTER:
A fresh white paint job, a brand new piece of mirror for the bottom shelf and a brand new piece of textured glass for the top shelf...now we're in business! I think the bright white color shows off the circle shape so much better. 



I think it looks great on the deck! 
Will be the perfect place to serve drinks or an appetizer this summer!
