This little cart made from a recycled baby buggy and the top of an old trunk can be wheeled anywhere but would look great on a porch as a tea cart.
This was the baby buggy before.   I had the top of an old trunk after using the bottom to build a bookcase.

Everyone once in awhile someone will come into the store (Reminisce-Paso Robles) with a freebie headed for the dump.  This baby buggy was in bad shape but I knew was good for something.  It still rolled!  I added the top of an old trunk that I had left over from an earlier project and VIOLA! a tea cart was born.

Any suggestions?

She finds me all kinds of treasures so when she wants something redone or wants something I've done...well it's hers. There's someone in line for that cart if she's ever willing to give it up. That buggy came to me and I've never ran across one either but now I'm on the lookout too because of the waiting list for buggy tea carts. Happy hunting. Posted: 1:21 pm on April 14th
