My Little Tea Cart

I have had this tea cart for years and use to have it in my kitchen....It served so many purposes.  Recently I decided to move it outside of  my new home and place on the patio. 

I actually love the color (green) that it is but have decided to spray paint it back so it will match my patio table and chairs.

Here is the before photo:



Notice the yucky fence in the background, I have recently painted and added jasmine





Here is the cart painted black to match my patio set.




I won the glass bottles holding the yellow flowers from a giveaway at Savvy Southern Style blog.








Now see all of the background dirt, I will be adding ground cover to this area and hopefully it will take.  My patio is located off of my screened porch and there is a huge live oak tree near the patio to provide shade.  So since there is plenty of shade, I will have to find a ground cover that needs shade only.

Tomorrow I will be visiting some gardens in the area.  Hope to take some great photos with my new camera so I can share them with you.

  1. We must think alike. I recently bought a little two tiered plant stand and placed 3 terra cotta pots with my pink geraniums on the top shelf. Love your teacart painted black! I'm still trying to decide if I should paint mine.

    Have fun playing with your new camera tomorrow!

  2. Your cart was really nice before but I love it now! You can really see the details on it so much better and I love the little bottles with flowers on top tray.

  4. What a sweet cart, I love it both colors! Pacasandra is a fast growing ground cover that likes shade.
