From Table To Clockface!

Have you ever had something that just wasn’t working in your home? A piece of cheap furniture is what I am referring to. You know those cheap, screw-in, three legged tables that are not as stablethreeleggedtable2 as you want them to be.

I found one for $2 at a flea market. I thought that I really got a deal and that I could use it for a display I was asked to do at church. Then I used it at home and set a Christmas tree on during the holidays but one of the legs just wanted to give way. It was just not a good functioning piece of furniture.

Yes, I could have sweet talked hubby into fixing it. And I could have painted it a fun color like these.

Aren’t they cute?

Then I had a light-bulb moment!

What about making a clock face out of it for my exercise room. I have a clock theme going on in there, so why not? I got the paints out and did my thing. What do you think?


Newly painted clockface with vintage folkart Chinese Checkerboard that I painted.

 Here are some various other clock faces going on in this room.


So what do gameboards and clockfaces have in common? I don't know, I just like them and they are displayed in my exercise room.

  1. I keep seeing this idea (tabletop to clock or clock to tabletop) and I love it...I am going to try the tabletop to clock idea on an old table I have...it's funny how trends pop up all at once all over blogland, isn't it? Your exercise room must be a fun room!
