Hi Ho Silver!

If you've been following my blog for awhile you know I've been collecting great, tarnished and time-worn pieces of silverplate.  I needed a good way to display my treasures and my china cabinet was hiding most of it.
I got this great little barley twist tea cart from a vendor that was closing out his space.  It was painted white - and I mean like 5 coats of thick white paint.  Since I thought completely sanding was more than I was up for, I decided to paint it.

The tea cart is tucked away in this inset corner of our dining room.

I have one other display of my silver to share with you soon!

Thanks for finding me at ACM in McKinney! It is good to "meet" you.

I am kind of smiling, wondering what your grandmother would have thought of your display of tarnished silver :)
