Another Clock Table

My love affair with clocks is not over!

  My first clock coffee table has been one of my most popular projects, and I also made a clock patio table here.  But this new one…may just be my favorite!

Barn 012

When I came across this little solid wood piece at Goodwill, it had to come home with me.  2013-08-01 14.37.48

You can see that while the finish is mostly in good shape, there were a few places where it had definitely seen better days!

Thank goodness it didn’t matter for what I had in mind for it! 

I painted it with a homemade chalk paint mixture, and then came the fun part…

I raided my paint stash for all the greys, browns, whites, and creams I had…and I didn’t care whether I was working with latex or acrylic!  I just wanted layers and layers of color.

I created my graphics with my Silhouette, and painted those on with black latex paint.

Then I went to town with distressing it and making it look “old.”

This was a piece I took with me to the barn sale, but I brought it home.  Maybe everyone doesn’t love clocks as much as I do, or maybe round coffee tables are harder to work with!

Whatever the reason…I don’t mind hanging on to it for a little while longer…but it is on Craigslist if you’re in the Seattle area!

I love it, Korrie! I'd love to try a clock table myself, although I'd probably wind up keeping it. : )
