At this point, I don’t know how many miss-steps my 1930’s (I was under the impression that it was from the 60’s, but not it’s much older) tea cart makeover took. First I disassembled and spray painted it green, but then I accidentally chipped off all the paint with a drafting pencil that was too pointy and peeled off the paint with my tape that was too sticky (which I was only using to make straight lines, not to ruin my life). So I repainted it blue and hand stenciled and painted my simple art deco design. I filled in most of the stencils and then I reassembled it, realized I’d done that incorrectly and disassembled again, stared at it for a good 25 minutes, the assembled correctly. …Then I had to put the handle back on, which is spring loaded (yeah, high tech cart of the 30’s) and it took a minute for me to figure it out. You know, let me just tell you the tale in pictures, I think we’re all too exhausted (or is that just me?) to do anything but flip through channels…yeah that’s real talk.
