Modern Tea Trolley?

Hi, everyone!

I have been trying to finish some small tables to bring to 

The Olde Farmhouse Fair in June.


I think this would be a great end table, since there is space for magazines underneath. But also I thought it could be a great tea trolley to serve tea or even snacks and drinks at a party!

I painted with ASCP Paris Grey, distressed a bit, 
and finished with clear wax.

It looks pretty simple, but it took a long time to paint and wax.

I finally used something from The Graphics Fairy!!!!


Yesterday I received these cookies from a dear friend, 
and today I had them with tea!

In one of the cookies is written "LOVE"
I ate "FUN" yesterday, LOL!


I had to finish this session early...
Because my cookie monster was lurking...

Look who is wearing the "Cone of Shame"...
Poor Axel!!!

Here are some more shots of the cookies!!!

SO pretty!!! And YUMMY, too!

Today I am partying at:

      I loved your blog!!!
      This graphics is in the "most popular" from the Graphics Fairy!
      I basically just printed and the traced on top of a transfer paper. Then traced over it with a permanent marker. I let it dry one day and then waxed with clear wax!

  7. Claudine,
    This tray is so fantastic! I love that image... sometimes I find it hard to choose, she has so many great ones! If it makes you feel any better, I feel I'm behind to... not enough hours in the day to get everything done!!
