I have a fun DIY project to share with you all today---
I made a side table out of a yard sale clock face!
I have loved reading your comments about the new living room decor.
Yes, we still love the new couches. And some of you were really looking at the pictures and saw there was a new addition in one I shared... the clock table!
I have to tell you, I love clocks... anything with type or numbers...
I have wanted a working clock coffee table for years.
I have seen similar tables go for lots of money in design stores.
So I was pretty proud of myself when I thought of using what I had in the basement to make my own!
It is a reproduction, not an heirloom, but a nice sturdy table none the less.
I liked it for the room... but it was not as big of clock as I wanted.
He drilled four holes and bolted them together.
He makes it look easy....
We took the clock apart and removed the back till it was a flat surface.
It was made with particle board.
It looks like a "clock stand" when it is down.
This was a fun solution to a problem with my layout...
the table in the corner was too far back to sit your drinks on.
With the recliners open it makes a big, deep hole in that corner of the room.
So now with this little table.... problem solved.
We have also used it as a game table...
My hubby and girls have played lots of scrabble this winter by the fireplace....
So the cost.... less than $10 for the two and four screws!
Since the decal was thin, I did coat it with four thin coats of poly....
so now it will be waterproof and ready for family use.
I love that!
Thanks for visiting and maybe I have given you an idea or two...
