A few years ago, I gave this hand made coffee table a paint job and it was so cute! But I didn't need a big round coffee table with a clock face, and apparently nobody else did either since my attempts to sell it failed. Let's take a look at it's little life over the last few years:
Let's take a look at it's little transformation that actually happened over a few years:
I painted the whole top white. And then armed with a measuring tape and google, (No, I can't recall the roman numerals from memory!) I stenciled the numbers on with large stencils I picked up at Wal Mart.
Since I didn't need a big round coffee table, I tried to sell it. But nobody else seemed to want it either, so I cut the legs off of it and hung it on the wall.
But it was so BLAH. BORING. Until I got a medallion stencil in the mail from Cutting Edge Stencils. I used a foam roller with a TINY bit of black paint on it and centered the big design right in the middle.
It literally took a minute to paint the design on with a foam roller. I love it's new look! If you scroll back up to the picture above the last one, you'll see there were other major transformations that happened to this room - not just a pretty "faux clock!" Click on over to see how we opened up the doorway to lead into the sunroom:
Some day if it's a good "faux clock" and listens to Jiminy Cricket, it might turn into a REAL clock. It totally needs some hands...

    Love the look though isn't it extremely heavy for the wall? How did you hang it?

    Love It!!! I've been looking for a larger sized wall clock. This looks awesome! Think I'll try using a precut, sanded circle from Home Depot or Lowe's, I've used them before for......tabletops. lol! Hole saw and Done! Great idea!

    Okay, so now I'm in a dilemma... I have a 4 top round solid oak table that I built oh, let's say 35 years ago (egad!). And I inherited a 4-6 top round solid wood table that also has 2 leaves. And I have a 4 top round glass outdoor table. I've been wanting to do something with the solid wood table (which is in my living/dining) and this would be great with my decor until I use the leaves...hmmm, don't use leaves that often-that's what tablecloths are for... Thank you so much for helping me make my decision!!!
