This table has been through transformations over the years. It started out life as a cute little plant stand that I pick up at Hobby Lobby for about $10. Eventually I added a glass top and used it as a bedside table. It eventually made it to the living room. One day, a bee got in my bonnet and decided the top needed to be bigger. I picked up a table top from Lowe’s (1" x 36" x 36" Stain Kiln-Dried Kiln-Dried Elliotis Pine Round).
I dug though the hardware in the garage and used large washers and screws to attach the table top.
Not bad, huh?
After serving me well in the living room, the table was calling for a change. Lesley over at Saving Grace was showing me one of her latest projects and I knew what I wanted to do.
I borrowed an overhead projector from my friend. The old overheads can be found all over Craigslist and through school district auctions for pennies on the dollar.
I printed the clock and “Vins” clipart on overhead transparencies.
Thank you, Graphics Fairy!
I lined up the table a adjusted the size. I then used black craft paint and followed the lines.
From the Vin sign, I used just the grape cluster.
I will finish the table with Johnson Wax.
I will grab a good read and steep a cup of tea.
Have a great weekend!
