It would be an understatement to say that I adore everything MacKenzie Childs...especially Courtly Checks. I wanted their placemats that look like this...
Ugly, Right? I thought so too. But these were the good cork bottom placemats that I wanted, even though there were only 2. Heck, we are empty nesters, so two is all I really needed for this project. So I cleaned them, lightly sanded them, primed them, painted them and sealed them. Here is my version of MacKenzie Childs Placemats...
And the total cost...One Little Ol' Dollar + my time and paints. As a side note for all you MacKenzie Childs lovers, I have categorized all my MacKenzie Childs Inspiration Projects in the lower area on my right sidebar.
