Mackenzie-Child's Like - End Table

209 Views
I started this with a sentimental end table that my daughter wanted me to update. She had seen a previous MC table I did for a friend and wanted one too!

To being with, I painted the entire piece white. I used chalk paint so I did not need to strip and sand this down.

Then I took notice of the curves and accent pieces and began to plan out what I was going to do with this.

I started with stripes and then added additional colors and checks. So fun right?

The original inspiration piece had a crackled front and I wanted to do this as well...

I painted the underneath piece gold...this is what you want to crackle through your paint. I used regular old craft glue on top of the gold and then painted white paint over it. I used a hair dryer on hot to dry the paint and create the crackle effect. I love the random lines and cracks....

I painted a few other places and then used an original Mackenzie-Child's knob.

    You did a fantastic job. Even love the checkerboard showing on the back legs.
