Child’s Tea Cart from Repurposed End Table

Inspire others...share!

There’s only one thing better than doing what you love, and that’s when you get to do it with other like-minded folks. Today is Furniture Fixer Uppers day and my blogger friends and I have quite the assortment of makeovers for you. My project begins with this thrifted side table and ends with a child’s tea cart. Let the fun begin!

Vintage Side Table Before | prodigalpieces.com

This cutie-patootie table came home with me and it sat for a bit because I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. I had many ideas, but I couldn’t pick one that jumped out at me. I had done one like it before as seen in this table post. Sometimes when I need to decide I will bring the piece in question into my home and just let it be there so I can stare at it, walk by it, and let it “talk” to me.

I didn’t have it in the house long when I asked one of my kids what they thought it should be. While still speaking I said, “Ya know, it looks like a mini tea cart to me.” BINGO! That was all I needed to get my brain jumpstarted and on track.

If you missed my vintage tea cart makeover, it’s truly one of my favorite pieces I’ve done and encourage you to take a peek HERE. That cart is what inspired this creation today – a child’s tea cart. This little side table was so cute with it’s flared legs, curved shelf, and event the pie crust edge. It was perfect for keeping a little one’s treasures at bay while wheeling a cart around. I am a toy nut since I thoroughly enjoy creating them and seeing a child go nuts over them. You can see my past creations in these posts.

So, here we go… First, I had to add some wheels since carts have wheels, right? ding! Well, the thing that made it a little tricky were those cute legs and their curve. See what I mean?

That’s nothing that my jigsaw couldn’t handle. I just buzzed off the part that stuck out and tapered it back to the foot and sanded it down. Now, I needed to add the holes to the legs so I could insert a dowel to use as an axle. I found placement of my wheel by measuring up from the bottom of the leg ½” – just enough to get the table off the ground. I used my drill and spade bit to make holes for the dowel axle. You want to make sure your placement is exact so the wheels turn properly, so take your time.Drilling Vintage Table Leg for Wheels | prodigalpieces.com

Once I have the holes, I cut my dowel to length making sure to take into account space needed for the wheel to rotate as well as the width of the wheel. I needed to increase the size of the hole in the wheels I had as it wasn’t big enough. (note: I got my wheels from this site in case you want to DIY a table of your own.) Wood glue was added to the end of the axles and wheels were placed on making sure to check for balance and level. I should also add that I lubed the axle holes and the axle itself with a bit of my furniture wax so everything would turn smoothly.

Time to add some more fun! This child’s tea cart needed a handle/towel bar so the wee one can push the cart from there to there. I simply gathered a few bits and pieces and created a handle.

Child's Tea Cart Handle Parts | prodigalpieces.com

I decided to attach it into the outer edge of the table using screws. First, I created the hole by pre-drilling and then also pre-drilling into the handle blocks so the wood wouldn’t split.

Drilling Vintage Side Table for Tea Cart Handle | prodigalpieces.com

Next, I measured the length between the blocks and added the depth of the forstner bit for each block and cut the dowel to length. So, for instance, let’s say my space between the handle blocks is 12″. I added ½” (¼ + ¼) to the length for the depth of the bit I was using. My total length then wold be 12 ½” for the dowel. Make sense?

Once all was cut and prepped, I assembled with more wood glue and screws and the handle is good to go.

Since the bottom shelf didn’t have a rail to hold essentials while the child’s tea cart was in use, I decided to add my own. This galley rail is often seen on hutches and such to hold dishes on shelving. I must say, I paid way more for this stuff than I did the table, but thought it was too cute and added so much more function. In order to attach it, I had JC help me cut them into a mitered box on our miter saw while I prepped the table. Attaching them from the bottom with screws is how I planned to make it stable. So, I needed to mark where the rails would sit and then pre-drilled the holes. Then attach with screw from the bottom up.

For the mitered corners, I used my nailer and brads to tighten everything up. I love my tools!! #toolsoverjewels is my motto.

This is the happy part!! Time to finish this fun creation with some of my favorite Dixie Belle Paint products. If you haven’t tried this paint or their other products like stencils, stains, waxes, etc., you are missing out. Head here to see all they have to offer.

Since my table was a cherry/mahogany stain, I did stain the raw wood to match the table before proceeding since I planned to distress, but I didn’t want any bleed through. To prevent that, I used BOSS Primer and my Square Brush to seal it all in. It also seals in any odors that may be present as well.

Once the primer was cured, it was time to bring in the fun. For the colors of my table I used: Manatee Gray, Drop Cloth, Gravel Road, and Tea Rose. Don’t those look like a sweet color combo?

First, I painted the wheels because I knew I would most likely get some on the table legs. That’s where I had a little artistic fun that I’ll show you in a bit. For the main part of the table, I used the Tea Rose.

I fell in love with that soft pink color when I first used it on my vintage vanity. Then, I used it again on this Ethan Allen table. It’s just so sweet! After the first coat cured, I added another coat and let it dry. Once all was cured, I added some panels of vintage wall paper to the shelf and top. Then, I used White Wax to seal the paint, as well as soften it and add dimension to the nooks and crannies. Simply brush it on and the buff off with a soft cloth.Dixie Belle White Wax for Repurposed Child's Tea Cart by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I seriously could have when crazy detailing this thing because it’s so fun, but I reigned in my vigor and decided to add a few elements to those turnings in the galley rail.

So fun, right? Well, here is my little vision come to life. I hope you love it as much as my kids and I do!

What's more fun that a tea party? One with a child's tea cart made from a repurposed side table for sure. See all the fun details at Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Repurposed Side Table into Little Girl's Tea Cart by Larissa of Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

Needless to say I had such fun repurposing that side table into this child’s tea cart. My heart is in creating, especially for kids young and old. Yes, I made just about everything in this picture, including the kids. haha. If you remember a few years ago, I shared how I used many of these food items as therapy while I was pregnant with my little girl that was born too soon. I was on bedrest and created and created to keep myself from going crazy with worry. Tears flow each time I think of her and my other baby we lost as well. But…this is a happy time.

These precious two are my youngest girls and they had such a hoot helping me stage this scene. They couldn’t wait until we were done so they could really play. So sweet they set extra settings for their sister and sibling in heaven. Sweet reunion one day!

note: If you love that little tea set, it came with the wicker basket and you can find it available here.

And…to make it even more fun, I created those little cake/dessert stands from a couple metal planters and wood rounds. Aren’t they the perfect size? One more thing…for another treat, I added a music box underneath that plays, “What a friend we have in Jesus”. There has been many a toy that I have made with music boxes, and they are one of my favorite things. I purchased them from the same place I got the wheels.

I do believe that Tea Rose paint is the perfect color for this and the white wax gave it a soft glow I was after. So fun to see it come to life. As much as you may think I should keep this for my girls, we have no need for it as they have plenty of things I have made for them as you can see. So…if you would love to make this your own, you can find it available in my shop.

    Love this little cart! If I win, the first piece I’d paint is my small little dresser that I love so much. It’s now painted a soft yellow, (I don’t know why I did THAT!), hahaha. I liked it at the time but the yellow has to go. It has 6 lower drawers, 3 on each side and 3 small drawers across the top. It and a few pieces that I’ve picked up through the years would look so pretty pained a soft frenchie blue with the soft white wax that you seem to love. I’m getting so pumped up now, I hope I win! Thanks for sharing your inspiration! :>)

    What an adorable, musical tea cart you made for your girls and Oh, so creative. Who had thought taking an end table and transforming it into a cart. Absolutely love it. I’m sure your girls will get lots of enjoyment having their own tea cart. Your little creations of ‘food items’ are so real looking.
    I have a tea cart that could use a whole new make-over and also a large chest of drawers that I would like to repaint so the Dixie Belle paint sure would come in handy.

    Oh my stars, you did a GREAT job with this cart makeover, go you!!
    I’ve never tried Dixie Bell yet would like to try it on a couple of folding chairs. If I like it there, I have a pyramid cd storage furniture piece that is currently golden oak and could use a freshen up. Might go grey and white with it.
    Thank you for the inspiration!

    Aren’t your girls the sweetest little models ! What a great idea to turn that table into a tea cart! I probably would have just left it as a table, since I’m in LOVE with small tables! And that’s what I will probably paint if I were to win the paint. But I also have some chairs that are going to a family of refugees, and those probably should be prettified first! Thanks for the inspiration, Larissa! and the chance to win such a wonderful gift!

    You are talented beyond belief! I love the cart – it should entertain little girls for hours. (Not in my family as the youngest girl is my granddaughter, who is 19 and just finishing up her sophomore year in college. I do have a couple of jars of Dixie Belle paint and I love it. I used it to paint 3 thrift store picture frames and then just before Christmas, I painted some small pieces of wood with Christmas themes. They are almost small enough to use as ornaments. That paint is just perfect for crafting and I love to paint . Having major foot surgery next week and will be in wheelchair for 6 weeks but I can wheel myself up to our harvest table to paint things for Spring. I was able to do that when I broke my femur 3 years ago and was in wheelchair for 3 months.

    Oh my goodness! How absolutely adorable! I love to see your creations. To answer the question as to what I would paint first, I have some beautiful walnut bedroom furniture passed down to me from my parents. It’s pretty dated and could use a makeover to match my country style bedroom. What a difference it would make. I’ve been putting it off for well over a decade. If I win, this may just be the best motivation to transform the pieces into something I love to look at.

    This cart is so cute, and the perfect delicate pink! There is a small accent table I have that I’ve been waiting to paint, just need to find the right color!

    I have found this post (and many of your others) very interesting. I have a sewing machine cabinet for a 301A machine that needs a ton of TLC. I have filled in the problem areas with wood filler, sanded it and now—to paint it. The cabinet is nothing special (it is not a Queen Anne cabinet) but the sewing machine is and I want the cabinet to look just as lovely as the machine. I’m building up courage to get some paint and do it.

    Hello! Lovely make over! First thing I would paint if I win the giveaway would be a lovely old display cabinet and I think I’d use the pretty pink colour you used on the tea cart. Great blog!
