My ASCP Tea Wagon

Welcome to my tea, haven't been on for awhile, although I have been checking everyone out. Been busy painting furniture and not sure what, just busy. We have had a beautiful weekend- a little on the cold side but great for working in the yard.
A couple of weeks ago we attended a yard sale and I bought a tray for a tea wagon

Cost me seven dollars, took it home and took the glass off and painted it a soft pink - I think Antoinette, ASCP great for my tea wagon I bought last year.
When I got the tea wagon home one of the large wheels was broken. On ebay I could buy wheels for 75.00 but not worth it, so I had hubby cut the uneven legs ( for the wheels) same as the other two.

I used ASCP old white, this is my before picture, I forgot to take them.
Got it finished and going to have a little tea

Come and join me

Cups and saucers are Shelley, as is the cream n sugar.
Having the tea in my work shop, which is an old school house, raining out, so makes a perfect spot
the two little dishes are Bridal Wreath, I got a huge stack at auction last week, it's a pattern that isn't that popular anymore, now saying that most dishes aren't popular at all. Things have changed in the auction business.

Teapot is New Country Roses by Royal Albert, love it, especially the soft pink to match my tray.
Did a little distressing but not really a lot, to me a tea wagon is a luxury and would be
really looked after and only used on special teas, so would be in good shape. But then saying that it should be used all the time so maybe it would be well worn, oh well didnt do it, couldn't bring myself to. It just didnt call for it.
Hydrangea is in a satin cranberry glass, sorry about the bike in the background.
bought little wheels from Home Depot.

Rough looking spot on the wing here and I have since resanded and waxed it.
Love the pink tray and the white of the tea wagon
