Time Time Time

Good Morning Thursday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We had a snow day here in Michigan because of the ice and rain and snow that came at us Tuesday evening.  So now it's Thursday and its get up and go, no more projecting until the evening or the weekend.  Now on to my latest project.  Husband found this delightful old table at an estate sale for the price of $10.  It was sturdy but needed a little TLC.  It has a drawer that you can't see but it's there.  The little metal feet on the table were badly rusty and falling off.  I didn't save them  nor did I replace them either.  Well, here is my before picture and as you can see the top had water marks and the finish was gone, but I still liked it.
I had seen in a magazine a table similar to this one with a clock face on it.  I just loved it but I had to figure out everything.  I first painted the table with a taupe color paint.  Then I cut out my own stencils for the numbers and the clock hands.  I used Martha Stewart letter stencils and another stencil for the writing on the clock.  When I was placing the stencils it took a little time and a lot of erasing before the clock looked right.  The rest was easy.  I painted the design on in a reddish brown acrylic paint.

When all stenciling was painted on  I decided to antique the top and the sides with the same paint that I had done the stenciling in.  It made it look a little older and blended in the numbers and writing.  I also antiqued the legs and center post of the table.  I also painted solid the banding around the table.  The feet were thrown away so I painted them.  I used the original drawer pull which I liked.

So here is what my clock table looks like.....Time Time Time.....................

So, what do you think?   Until next time, Dianne................
