Tea Cart Beverage Station Makeover

I happened to have my grandmother's old wrought iron tea cart in our gazebo. It was starting to look a little tired so I decided to repaint it for an upcoming party. I've seen a lot of pictures lately of turquoise tea cart/beverage stations like this one.

As a result, I decided to step away from my tried and true Rust-oleum black and go with something much bolder. Here is the tea cart before.

I cleaned it with liquid dish soap and water and got the dirt off and then took out the inserts. Sadly, I did't take pictures of the painting process, but it involved one and a half cans of this baby.

And here it is, all cleaned up and ready for summer!

That came out so cute. I love the circular details on the cart they we're lost in the black. The blue really makes them pop. Good choice
