MacKenzie Childs Inspiration #2

Again, I am a lover of everything MacKenzie Childs! EVERYTHING! And this is my MacKenzie Childs Inspiration #2 (I have many more to show you).

I loved the MC table top design and how truly unique it was. However the cost of this table is $5,200!  I had this antique table to use for this design that I paid $20 for at a garage sale. Here is how it started off after I painted it white...

This is not a dining table but more of a petite coffee table. Back in the era when this was 'new' it would have been taller and known as a hall table or side table. Sometime over it's life, someone had cut it down into what is now this lower coffee table height. I began painting it and this is my version of the inspiration piece. Sadly, again I had no space in my home for it and sold it on eBay.

  2. Very nice. I wish I had some artistic drawing capability. I'm more of the trace or stencil type.

  3. That turned out gorgeous! I love to paint in that style too every now and then. I am a Mary Engelbreit girl too myself! Funny story about that is that my hubby is very upset that he actually knows who that is. LOL.

  4. Terry, you did an awesome job on that table! I thick I like it as much as the inspiration if not more!!!

    Okay, you have a new follower and welcome to the blogging world. I had to tell you how excited I was to see you are in Quincy! I have a lot of family there as my dad's side is born there. I go up about every 6 weeks to stay with my elderly aunt and check on her. I am only 3 hours southwest from you! A very neat town you live in!!

    Thanks for your kind words on my kitchen makeover!
