Serving Cart Turned Dazzler!

Hello friends!  It's been a while!  Umm... Happy New Year!! Better late than never... right?! : )  Hope your year is ticking along nicely. It seems like I've been away for so long... I've lost my bloggy MOJO, so bear with me while I try to get back in the swing of things.  I've missed you guys!  Can't wait to go through everyone's blogs and see what all you've been up to.

So onto the DIY... getting back into the swing of things, I thought I'd revisit a DIY'd end table I briefly mentioned in an earlier post.  It's a tea cart... turned dazzling end table!  And I mean dazzling!  It literally sparkles. : ) ~ HA

I posted a snap shot of this little tea cart months ago.

Ok... so maybe an uber sparkly end table isn't for everyone.... but for those of us that would rather buy furniture than jewelry... It's the best of both worlds right?!  Here's how it started out.  Just a Plain-Jane serving cart, tea cart... whatever you want to call it.  Kind of flimsy looking.  I was already in the middle of blinging it up when I remembered to take a before picture... so just imagine.... plain cart no crystals.  Got it?  Good!

The chains of chandelier prisms have little bow-tie clips perfect for hanging, and you can bend them closed so they stay put.  

So where did I get the chains of prisms you ask?  Ebay.  Here's the link, I searched chandelier parts, crystals.  There are pages and pages of crystals/prisms to search through. Some vendors offer better prices than others so you just have to search through the sea of options.  Of course I fell in love playing with them and started hanging them on everything... remember my chicken wire Christmas decor here, and here?

Pretty right?!

Oh!  PS: One of you guys nominated Renew Redo on the Homies...
