This piece sat in a corner of Nannie's dining room for years, and held boxes of her family silver. I think it goes with a set of three metal nesting tables that I brought home last Spring. I saw it and knew it would be perfect for our deck.
In complete honesty, between bugs, bad weather, morning sickness, etc. we haven't used our deck once this summer. I doubt I will have a chance to refresh this piece before Fall arrives. I have about 32 projects going on inside the house. For now, it's going outside and I'll probably cover it when the weather gets bad.
As you can see, our vintage patio furniture (also from Nannie's) is white. The black side tables are from Target and coordinate with the black dining table from Lowe's. I can't decide to give the tea cart a fresh coat of white (it's currently a dingy cream color), black, or maybe a bold color. I'm thinking maybe white and then using bright accessories as accents.
Have you rescued any pieces in need of some TLC lately?
