“Whimsical Wonder” Accent Table Makeover

Amy at Joyful Daisy shares a fun tutorial in which she transformed a 20-year-old worn accent table into a whimsical wonder! She says, “It was oodles of fun as I drew my inspiration from all the wonderful furniture designs at Mackenzie Childs.” Using a two -tone painting technique, Amy was able to recreate their whimsical combination of color and design complete with the signature checkerboard design and gold dots.

Amy was inspired by pieces like the Highland Thistle Table from MacKenzie-Childs.
