Little Wine Stand Makeover

My girlfriends and I have been going to the auction on Tuesday nights.  It's a lot of fun and it is so interesting to see what people buy and what items sell for.  A few weeks ago a Stickley dining room table sold for only $125 and the other night someone spent over $20 on tongs for grilling - there is no rhyme or reason and it certainly is amusing!

I bought this cute little end table/wine stand.  It was stained brown and here it is primed (because sometimes I get so exciting to jump into a project that I forget to take photos!)

And here it is completed:

I had some fun with the trim, giving it a marbled-look:

And of course, I had to add my favorite checks to the top:

It might be hard to part with this piece, but I have to - I have no room for it at all!

  5. Cute makeover, Patti! Very creative.
    Thank you for stopping by.

  6. Omigoodness! This darling little table reminds me of Mackenzie Childs, which I think is a fantastic designer. Are you familiar with them?

  7. Patti, as always, you did a fantastic job.
    How fun and whimsical. Debbie said you might be up for a new blog design. I have some ideas for you....

  8. What a beautiful transformation! I just got a midcentury table that I'm trying to decide what to do with. I like your creative take on what to do with this one. Did you have to pay much for the table? Hope you have a place to sell this beauty. Someone will surely snap it up.

  9. Oh my gosh, Patti, I just love it! Love the checks and the stripes on the same piece.
