Clock Table From a Flea Market Find

Last August I went with my sisters and my youngest son, Nathan, and we attempted to conquer the Route 11 Yard Crawl. We made it through about 25 miles of the 40 mile yard sale before it was quitting time. It was during that trip that Nathan bought a dartboard for $1 and the bottom of this table for $5. His first thought was to attach the dartboard to the table and make a really cool and unique table. Well, time passed, and he eventually decided to use the dartboard as a dartboard, and in October, he made a really cool dart board cabinet out of scrap wood and corrugated tin.
The rest of the table sat in my basement for a half a year,it was just calling for me to do something with it. After getting the go ahead from Nathan, this is what became of his $5 table.
The wood round was picked up at Home Depot for $6.88.
The 2 pieces were nailed and glued together then painted with a gray base coat. Finished with a coat of white. All were sanded down with a palm sander to reveal the different layers.
A clock face was downloaded, enlarged then the outline was transferred to the top of the table. The outlined numbers were filled in with black paint.
The clock face was once again sanded and coated with a layer of tinted wax.
Table was finished with a band of wood from an old wooden hoop, another flea market find. If you would like to see more of this transformation, please be sure to stop by my website.
