Clock Top Table ~

DIY | Inspiration

So yes, I love clocks...not the digital-annoying-wake-you-up kind, but lovely clocks with detailed hands and rustic faces. I was sad the day this one no longer worked. He is big and grand, but sadly not in the misfit closet. So I pulled him out the other day determined to find a use for his lovely face.

Remember this Goodwill table?

Well, if you add a large clock face to a kinda-boring table, you get a one-of-a-kind side table with just a touch of whimsy!

Yes, it is possible that your hubby may look at you sideways, but you might just fall in love. 

Before:

After:

When the weather gets a bit warmer, I might give that base a nice coat of black...or maybe find a new home for my lovely clock face altogether.

Ah, the beauty of an ever evolving home!

A larger table? check
A use for my lovely clock? check
A fun unique piece? check
Hubby renewed love for my creative side? we will see!

What a great use of that clock. I think it makes that table look better. And I love the whimsy factor that it adds to your room.

Oh my gosh, that is an idea I've been thinking of doing to a small, plain side table myself, Chelsea! I think that's a great alternative for such a great looking clock.

Love it. I'm looking for a Craigslist table right now to paint a clock face on. Love how yours came together.

Ha! I have the same clock I turned into a table too. The clock was great but unfortunately it didn't work for very long.

You are brilliant! This looks so classy. Just think what something like that would cost in a high end furniture store. You are good! :)

This is such a cute and easy idea, Chelsea. I have a large clock that I may not get working again, this is some great inspiration.
