Beverage Cart

 I wanted to share a beverage cart I found at an antique shop a few weeks ago.  The nice part of this story is that I actually set out to find a beverage cart. I found  this one in the second store.. This never happens to me. I thought I would be looking for weeks. 
 It was black when I bought it.  I originally thought I would paint it a deep blue green.  But after a trip to Home Depot I discovered  they carried Martha Stewart paint and there was a pretty gray color.  I am in love with all the gray rooms that are so popular right now.  Maybe, I will be painting a few more things gray in the future. By the way the Martha Stewart paint goes on really well.   I love that you can buy the small sample size cans to  see if you like the color.   And the size is  great for small projects like this one.
 I am glad I picked gray, it looks really nice.  I bought a piece of fabric to make a small table cloth for the top.  I haven't used the cart yet, this is just a little breakfast look I put together for the picture.  I was really looking for a cart that I could use around the holidays.  There never seems to be enough room on our table. This would be perfect to hold a few extra things next to table.  
On another note, we are in the middle of having  our deck power washed and stained. We just put new decking down last summer! It seems that the stain did not take for some reason.  It was not the best time in my opinion, to do this but it had to be done. It looked so pretty when it was new last year, this season not so much!  Well, I will have to find a new favorite place to hang out for a few days! Any ideas? I guess I can always resort to shopping! 

 Thanks for visiting!
