Cute Lemonade Cart!

Hi!  I am so excited to team up with my favorite bloggers for this month’s furniture theme:

A cart is furniture, right?  And check out that cute Lemonade 25cent stencil!
Every little girl needs a cute little lemonade stand and my little one has already put it to good use…She made $3.25 in 30 minutes yesterday (not bad for a 6 year old!)

Here is what we started out with!
   NOT PRETTY!  but for $3 I’m game!
After some messing around with the top and some serious sanding I decided it was best to just paint to top with KILZ primer and then ModPodge some paper on it.
The KILZ is to stop the rust from bleeding and the ModPodge is to camouflage the bumps on the metal.
I had some left over paper from my
Household Manual Binder and placed it right on top!  Liking it so far!
I spray painted the rest of the trays in a bright yummy yellow and cleaned and buffed up the legs.
I traced a stencil and then painted it in with green paint.
There’s the
I guess my little one is stuck with the price for awhile ( or I’ll just grab the paints again when inflation strikes! )
Are you thirsty yet?
Add a cute little chair to relax in and grab a glass of lemonade.
Now all that we need is some more customers so come on over!
 Thanks for stopping by our Cute Lemonade Cart today.

    I love this and so would my (teenage) daughters! They used to use my plain white cart for a lemonade stand. I might have to paint mine yellow now!
