Twinkle, twinkle little bat
How I wonder what you’re at
Up above the world you fly
Like a tea tray in the sky…
I thought starting the morning with a little Alice in Wonderland quote might make your day go better!
I found this little piece at a garage sale. I don’t know for sure that it is an actual “tea tray,” but that’s all I can think of when I see those cute little wheels.
(edited to add: OK, from some of your comments, now I know it was a "rolling TV cart." Ugh, how UN-romantic! It's a tea cart now anyway!)
I decided to try my hand at the harlequin pattern. I painted the whole piece white, and then I measured the length of the tray and divided it evenly into 8 sections. I “connected the dots” and taped off my diamonds (using a razor blade to cut the excess tape). Then I sprayed the whole piece with green, and peeled off my tape diamonds.
It looked pretty nice all freshly painted, but the colors were just too bright for me! So, after a lot of distressing and glaze…
…I have something that looks a little worn with time and use.
Oh, but didn’t I call it a “tea tray”?
…Won’t you please join me for a summer snack?
I’ll get out my best silver…
I might find some napkins in the house (but probably not)…
Come play with me!
Linking up to these great parties here.
