Creatively Tuesday is still LIVE!
Go link up here and come right back… please! 🙂
As I sat outside painting, enjoying the cool breeze and the sunshine on my face, I thought of everything I wanted to say in this post. It was creative, clever, and wonderful.
Then I ate lunch.
I’m pretty sure my lunch ate my brain cells. There’s nothing left.
So, I’ll try to recover what I can as I type about this lovely tea cart transformation.
I know it’s not so lovely right now. This little tea cart was sitting in the storage unit where I went to purchase my antique buffet. It called out to me, “Buy me too! Get me outta here!!”
I bought her. I feel quite guilty actually. I pretty much stole her, in a not so evil kind of way. The man just wanted to clean out his storage unit and so I got her for a song.
If I told you how much I paid, you’d gasp, you’d scream, you’d cry.
So I’ll spare you the gasping, screaming and crying.
I mentioned that this was an accidental transformation. You have to find out why!
Ever wonder what would happen if you added Miss Mustard Seed to Annie Sloan? It equals chippy goodness! (I was going to say if you ever wondered what would happen if they got married, but then realized that was just too weird!)
After a little distressing and some clear wax, she was complete!
Oh so beautiful!!
Here she is with two of my garage sale finds from Saturday.
See… I told you I’d paint that serving dish! Doesn’t it make a gorgeous chalkboard?
