Hand Made Wall Hung Entry Table with Recycled Chair Arm Brackets and Hand Painted Diamond Harlequin Pattern

entry way striped table black and white checks hand painted
I don't have an official entryway in my home but I needed
a place by the front door to drop keys and mail. 

I don't have a "before" photo but it started as just a box with drawers that
I found  at a yard sale for $2 and it was the perfect size for this space.

I painted it with black and cream checks and stripes and added fun ceramic knobs.

The curvy brackets are from a broken chair that had the most beautiful curved arms
and I cut them off before it went to chair heaven.

black and white check and striped table
I love diamond, check and stripe designs and love to paint them. 
I very rarely draw them out on the surface before painting but
prefer to freehand them for a more 'painterly' effect.

The drawer part is attached to the wall with large L-brackets.
I screwed the curvy brackets into the bottom of the drawer as well as the wall.

Thanks for checking out my little table!
