8 Ways To Use A Tea Cart
Tea carts are back! Yes, yes, yes! How cute are tea carts? You probably noticed the occasional tea cart while scrolling down your Pinterest, so it must be true, they really are back. But what I noticed is that tea carts are only being used for its purpose. So I’ll be breaking the rules today and saying that I won’t be doing that.
I know that we aren’t living in the age where we drink tea and sit around on our patios eating biscuits all day. So today I’ll be sharing 8 ways to use a tea cart that isn’t all meant for its purpose
First I want to start out about where I got my cart, this is kinda important because tea carts aren’t cheap. I purchased my first tea cart, about 2 years ago from OfferUp. I got it for around $40 (DEAL!) and I love it, but unfortunately it looked a little dull for my taste. So I sanded it very lightly and painted it my absolute favorite color; gold. Now it’s perfect!
I’m hoping that my ideas on how I used my teacart would be able to spring up the desire to start your own!
- Nightstand: Currently I’m using my cart as a nightstand. And oh does it look good, the size is perfect for all that I pile onto it. I’m the type of girl that when I taste the magic of my comfy bed, there is no way I’m getting out again. So I try to keep almost everything that I could possibly need arm length away.
- Bar/ refreshment area: This was the very first job that my tea cart had when I became its owner, and oh did it do its job well. When I was getting married and made my room into a big dressing room, I used this tea cart to hold our snack and refreshments.
- Bathroom: Now you’re probably wondering what in the world would a teacart do in a bathroom. Well actually more than you think, it’s a beautiful piece to have next to the bath. It can hold all your soaps, candles, and towels. Or even next to the sink to hold your makeup and perfume.
- Closet: I know that we don’t all have walk-in closets, but for those that do (Lucky butts). A tea cart can be used to hold jewelry, shoes, or simply as a drop spot for clothes.
- Side/ end table: If you need a table to hold your lamp or magazines in your living room, well spice it up and use a teacart instead. It looks unique and elegant and works really well to replace that same old wooden table.
- Kitchen helper: We all are always lacking storage room around the kitchen. So if you need another surface, here’s one that even looks good.
- Décor: If you just like how it looks, then hey set it up anywhere. Slap some décor on there, maybe some pumpkins for fall, or some lights for Christmas. And there you have a beautiful stage for all that décor that you couldn’t find room for anywhere else.
- Teacart: Yes my last idea for the teacart is to use the teacart as a teacart. It’s actually pretty amazing. Sometimes I pull out my nightstand for when I have my girls coming over for coffee. I pull it up right next to use, so it makes for a comfortable arrangement.
My hope is that this post gave you some great ideas on how to use your tea cart. If you end up using any of my ideas or have your own; PLEASE share them with me, I would love to see what you came up with.
