Elizabeth of Southern Color found this table in the dumpster at her apartments. It had some damage to the top of it but overall it was in good condition.
She and her blogging partner in crime/twin sister Julia turned it into a shabby chic checkerboard table for the guestroom they were making over for a friend. After giving it a couple of coats of creamy white paint, they taped off a checkerboard pattern on the tabletop, they painted it with white so the checkerboard would have a very slight two-tone contrast. The finishing touch? “Checkers” made from corks. Too cute!
