French Flower Cart

I just have to show a great example of why I love to paint furniture so much! The last project I just finished is always my favorite...and this is my favorite right now.


This project was actually done for a client. Her Grandmother's tea cart is now updated and looks like a French flower cart to me!



The client who owns this cart said it is perfect..makes me happy!

I have been fighting off some kind of bug. Just feeling achy and tired. In between naps I finished this cart...and it has lifted my spirits at least :)


I am still planning to do my tutorial post on making something similar to Bentley's cabinet--which includes how to do the striping shown here. Stay tuned for that if you love to paint like I do :)

Hope everyone is doing well..and staying well!


Thanks for visiting!

I love the stripes and how the spokes of the wheel and the rims are different colors. Great job! I am really looking forward to the tutorial.

You SO amaze me with your creativity Sandy!!!!!! I absolutely love what you have done to this cart! I also LOVED the pieces you shared in your last three posts. You are so inspiring girl! You have a way of making anything come alive and I feel like getting the brush out after visiting you. I've painted most of the pieces in my house and wish I could say I loved painting,(but don't) but if I lived near you maybe you could re-train me :)))))))
I am sending warm hugs to make you feel better. I hope the bug leaves you soon my dear.
