Antique Serving Cart

Follow along to see how this antique cart was given a fun farmhouse finish.

I purchased this sweet antique wheeled cart and as soon as I brought it home my youngest daughter asked for it for Christmas as a plant stand in her new apartment. When asked what colors she saw it in, she instantly said white and dark stain.

As with all my pieces, especially the old antiques that have seen years of wear and use I scrub them thoroughly. You can in the still photo and the video just how much grime and dirt comes off.

Country Chic simplicity accent table


A good customer brought me a table they purchased already painted grey but not in their color choice. They wanted it white to match the handcrafted desk they had me recently relove.

The phone would sit on top of the table, and the telephone book would sit on the shelf underneath. The white country chic paint really brightened this table up. It looks fresh and new, now.
