A New Table and a Pottery Barn Knock Off

Hello Everyone!  Have I told you how wonderful my husband is….I know I have I just wanted to tell you again.  Look at what he made for me. 

003

  I asked him if he would make a table for our hallway down stairs.  I told him my ideas and he made me one.  I was unable to find one that was narrow enough to fit.  Of course after he finished it, I started painting it with white milk paint and heavily distressed it.   It’s now in our hallway.

I think he did an awesome job….I love it and it’s the perfect fit!

Did you happen to notice the big clock face?  How can you miss it right.   I’m calling that my Pottery Barn knock off.   I was browsing their web-site the other day and they had a painted clock face listed for $299!  I thought to myself….I can make that. 

I found a clock face graphic that I had and for the life of me I can’t remember where I got it from.  I went to Staples and had them enlarge it to the size that I needed.

003

I used a tabletop that was in the shed.  I removed the hardware and painted it black. 

002

I trimmed the excess paper and then applied Mod Podge to the front of the tabletop and placed the clock face on.   After the Mod Podge dried, I distress the front of it with Distress Ink.  

029

Do you know how much mine cost to make…..$3.50 and that was Staples fee for enlarging it!

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Gail

  14. Gail, the table is amazing and so is the clock face. You two are quite a team. I have that clock graphic and I'm pretty sure it came from White Life. After seeing yours I'm definitely going to try making one.

  16. Gail, everything looks wonderful! Love your new table (my hubby is talented like that, too. Isn't it nice??!!). And that clock face ~~ well, let's just say I've already pinned it for future reference. ;) I have a window pane similar to yours that I think I've just figured out what to do with! Have a great day, my friend!

  25. Oh my lands, girl!!! You never cease to amaze me, your husband made a fabulous table and you've painted it so perfectly and decorated it beautifully. But that clock face!!! I want one just like it and I think I can make it, too. But first I have a chest of drawers and a headboard to paint for my bedroom. But that clock face would look fabulous in my bedroom...thanks so much for the inspiration.
    Love and hugs, Cindy

  44. Gail, first of all I cannot believe that is the same table. Gorgeous! The clock is to die for. You did an amazing job. I really want to go make one now for sure. Do you happen to remember what size you enlarged the clock to for printing or how you determined what to tell Staples?

    This is a beautiful and inspirational post. I would love it if you would share it at our WIW Linky Party. I hope you can join us.
