This is an old beat-up rusted Tea cart had no glass so I turned into a treasure AND.... an old beat-up wood ladder into a mosaic plant stand

Very beautiful! Love the plates you found for mosaicing. Your ladder looks too pretty to cover with anything! And your amaryllis is gorgeous too! Great job!

BEAUTIFUL, GORGEOUS, EXQUISTE!!!!!! You did a tremendous job in turning a piece of what other people would call JUNK, into a "TREASURE". How long did it take you to finish it? Thank you for letting us see it.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THESE!!! You did a wonderful job Gardencraze....love the florals you used for the mosaics....I've never tried to do that, but I sure am going to put it on my "to do" list. The tea cart is just too pretty.....thanks for letting us see your treasures.

Oh, and your amaryllis is lovely too!

Those are too pretty to use!! You did a wonderful job!
I keep telling myself that someday I'm going to try my hand with mosaic.
Love the amaryllis too. That's a great shot, I like the light coming through the petals.
Thanks for posting the photos.

Thank you :o)
azcactusflower, the tea cart did not have any glass so I had to cut a board thats oval about 23x14. I laid it on the kitchen counter and did about 2 hrs at a time, so it took maybe 4 hrs to mosaic and another 1 hr. or so to grout and clean. Such a fun project.
Again thanx for all the great comments

Those are truly works of art. They certainly won't be coming home from the show with you. I have an old ladder that I'd love to mosaic. You've given me inspiration. Now I just need to find the bandaids. I'm a klutz with the broken china. ;)

Really beautiful tea cart & love that the 2 shelves match. Would love to have the ladder! I have 1 but it too far gone to do that to it.(Even if I knew how) Flowers are lovely too. mine are just starting to bloom. They sometimes bloom 2-3 times in 1 yr. but last yr only did it once. Jan
