Paris Tea Trolley

Today is the first time I've used my Paris stencil on a piece of furniture. I'm very pleased with the result. 


A cute little vintage tea trolley that had definitely seen better days and was nearly passed in at auction.  I love the little castor wheels.


It's painted a pale French grey with the detail in a darker colour that I mixed myself.




The edge trim is also darker grey. On display is some of my new fleur de lis dinner set I bought recently. An absolute bargain from Haven & Space in Berry.

  5. Awesome! I've got to keep this in mind! I've done a couple of Graphics Fairy pieces, as well as a tea cart done in a harlequin pattern. You might want to check them out here: http://bluestarantiques.blogspot.com

  6. This looks great! I have almost exactly the same stencil, except it has a number instead of the word "paris". I used it on a little table I had too - in grey just like yours!
