French Clock Side Table

Home Depot has these $4.00 round, wooden cut circles.

 I bought one that worked perfect for this project. 


I wasn't sure what to do with the circle until I found
a wooden IKEA plant stand at the thrift store.

Using L brackets I attached the circle table top
to the plant stand then painted the whole thing
in Black Chalky Paint.


I cut the Roman numerals and the word Paris
on my Silhouette machine 

then dry brushed
light grey over the top of the vinyl. 


When I peeled the vinyl numbers off I was left with
a beautiful clock image. 

I waxed the whole table with clear wax.


Dry brushing creates a beautiful design...

  1. I LOVE it, Susan! It will be gone by the end of next week {if that long}! : ) Happy 4th!

  2. saw those wooden circles a while back, but of course didn't picture such a wonderful project when I looked at them. Cheers for your table!

  3. I love it! It does pay to look around the hardware shops. I love the brushed look very much!

  4. Susan! The clock table looks great! I have 2 of those rounds just waiting for a purpose. :) I've done a small faux clock and an extra large one, maybe it's time to do a small one.

    love the way yours turned out!


  5. How pretty. Great job :-)
