Wicker Tea Trolly - It's All Casey's Fault

Ok so maybe it's not completely Casey's fault, but her recent posts of wicker projects and books made me really wish I hadn't already packed the one wicker piece that I've made. And then while I was packing I saw the box it was packed in and realized it was incredibly easy to get to. I didn't even need a box cutter or anything...

So without further ado, here's my wicker tea trolly.This was a class at the St. Louis show many years ago. We also did a bowl of nuts and some other goodies, but they are packed in a different place. The instructor was fantastic and we all had a really good time.

If I recall correctly, this was done with a fine waxed linen cord. The wheels really turn and the holes for the wire supports were already drilled.

I also picked up the same 1:12 wicker furniture book that Casey has in her post from today. I haven't tried anything in there yet, but I plan to in the (hopefully) near future. It's already packed as well and very hard to get to, so if you're curious about the book in question, follow the link to Casey's post.

I'm going to finish my snack, try to shake off this cold, and get back to work. Ten days is going to go by awfully fast.

Your tea cart is beautiful! I'm hoping to learn how to do this. I ordered the book that Casey recommended. I will probably need a class to figure it out though... :D

So pretty! I am dying to try wicker and buy the book Casey recommended but am saving money for the Tom Bishop show this weekend in Atlanta (maybe the book will be there!). I am hoping that since I did basket weaving in the 80's it will translate to mini wicker!

I love your tea cart!

That tea cart is lovely. I would like to try something like that. I love wicker and I did make a cat bed but I have never got around to making anything else. I should though because it looks so nice.

Love your little Cart Kat. Like I said to Casey I've not tried it yet.

Now I am being blamed for you unpacking boxes that are already packed for the move???No fair.LOL

I only mentioned wicker. I said nothing about rummaging around in packed boxes! BTW, it was worth the unpacking. The tea cart is beautifully done!

your tea trolley is so pretty! & I'm even more glad I sent you the tea tray now as it will have somewhere to live :o) and no! you don't need to go rummaging in any more boxes to check it out for size!! LOL
I've always wanted to try and make a wicker chair like casey's but somehow think it wont be the easist project to start off with! oh well, another thing to add to my 'to do' list......
