I love MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check designs, especially the pottery. The enamelware is also beautiful, but if I had my choice, and the money, I would buy all of the pieces in the pottery line. I love how the paint is dragged thru each individual check.
This bowl was the inspiration for this mirror transformation. I had an old maple mirror and I painted it white:
I made a pallette of creamy white, plum, green and banana acrylic paints and began to paint the individual white checks. And then I went back to paint the black checks. I have been to the M-C plant in Aurora, NY numerous times and this is how I remember them painting their checks...
And this is how it turned out:
I wanted a mirror by my front entry....and this is doing the trick!
I also like how the reflection of my dining area shows up in the mirror:
Now I need a taller lamp - Isn't it funny how one project leads into another???
