Hi everyone! I have been so busy planning our 2014, I have not had time to post – The good news – the planning is almost done, and I think you will love our 2014 plans when we are done ;-)
Yesterday, I was cleaning out our decor storage to make room for yes, more decor (after all; a girl has to have her stuff ;-) ) when an old Pottery Barn clock and a rather large iron candlestick appeared. I pulled them out, sitting the clock on the candlestick to keep it safe while I shifted the other items. When I turned around to move it back into storage, it was like angels singing! It was obvious their common theme was none other than a DIY Clock Table, a perfect up-cycle project! Dropping everything, I started designing how I would get it to stay on the candlestick, after all I always wanted a DIY Clock Table since seeing one in a magazine.
I 4 easy steps here's what I did to create this awesome DIY clock table:
I ran off to Lowe’s (because who wants to clean when you can play at Lowe’s, am I right? ;-) ). Once there I gathered the one item I did not have, Leveling Glides by Softtouch. I brought them home and got to work.
1. I drilled four 3/16″ holes at the 12 -3-6-9 marks on the wood frame of the clock.
2. Next, I painted the glides black to match the hands of the clock, dried, soaped the threads and screwed all four into the holes I drilled.
3. Then, I routed out the back of the clock in a small but deep circle for mounting the clock on to the candle stick seen below. I mounted it this way because the clock still works. Mounting this way we could change the batteries located in the back of the clock.
4. I added a piece of glass from the decor area, and BAM – a new DIY Clock Table!
That’s right – a sassy new DIY Clock Table out of three old items I would have never used again. How cool is that! ;-)
I hope you enjoy the quick post today and I promise the 2014 plans are coming to a blog near you soon! Have a great day everyone – happy blogging!

Sealed the table top down by routeing a circle to fit the table top so it can still be removed to put batteries in for the clocks.
