Black and White Checked End Table

I returned to the Swap Shop and found this table for only $5.
There is a magazine rack on the inside of the door:
And a cute extension table that pulls out:
I primed it and painted it in Heirloom White:
Hear are the photos, step by step:

I "dragged some MacKenzie-Childs colors" through the white:
The back side has a harlequin diamond design with gold dots at the joints:
Both sides and the front have stripes:
The edges have gold trim, the bottom has gold polka dots and the front has a country scene painted on the raised panel:
I gave it a quick coat of varnish to prevent chipping and marks:
The pull-out table was already covered with black vinyl, so there was no need to change it:
So, there you have it - another inexpensive MacKenzie-Childs knock-off:

Update: Just sold this on CraigsList!

  1. Oh my word, this is totally amazing. You are so creative and so talented to be able to do such beautiful detail work, and to even dream it all up. Gorgeous. Hugs, Marty

  2. Looks great they will be calling you to do some of their painting.

  3. Love it! Did you freehand the harlequin pattern or use a stencil? I tried this pattern on a lamp shade freehand, but it turned out horrible!! I may give it another go as you have really inspired me! Great job!

  4. Patti, you do such amazing work. This table is gorgeous!

  5. Patti I love the reformation! WOW! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. Hi patty...what a neat looking piece. I love harlequin patterns too.

  7. Patti, another awesome piece created by YOU. I'm impressed with your talent. Wish I were as clever and full of energy as you are. ;-)
    Thanks for the visit. Wouldn't it be fun to sit and visit about McK-C. ;-)

  8. Wow! I don't know what to say, Patti. You just blow me away with your MC knock-offs. I love this table and how perfect for a blogger, too! Pull out top for the laptop; magazine holder for magazines or other related blogger reference material; and all in the cutest table.

  9. Patti, what patience you have! You did a wonderful job!!

  10. Wow, what a transformation! You are so creative. Thank you for sharing your project. My daughter is getting ready to have a home of her own so she naturally gravitates to these types of projects on pinterest. I will share your post with her. Happy blogging.
