Recycled cupboard door, a coaster and some old bed posts

This cute little table is pretty much 100% recycled wood.  The legs were part of a 1960's four-poster bed, the table top was a cupboard door from a salvage yard and the applique on the front is a 1970s wooden coaster that I cut in half.

If you compare this harlequin paintjob to my previous post of the green coffee table you can see how differently a pattern can look just by changing the length or width of the diamond.  A long thin diamond makes the piece look longer and more slender. A short blocky diamond can make a piece seem more square.  In the past I have been unhappy with a diamond pattern and redone it.  You would be amazed how the same piece can look totally different with two different sized patterns,
