Clock End Table Makeover
Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection
A great big HELLO everyone as we share with you our clock end table makeover completed with Modern Masters Paints Metallic Collection.
Well, let me give you some back ground on this ugly little table moving to the villa the table’s top was damaged. I loved the base, but hated what happened to the top, that was now peeling, looked awful and the glass was all broken when we unwrapped her.
Looking past what happened, because – well – stuff happens – it was my goal to take the base, beautiful iron legs and make it something new – and you all know how crazy I am about clocks ;-).
Hubby kept saying “toss it out” however, I could not let it go – a total – Hello my name is Linda and I have a junk collection problem (I hear your voices now saying “welcome Linda!” LOL).
When rearrange the shop the other day for a new delivery of finds, I pulled out the broken table and finally told hubby it was this broken tables lucky day. I sat up the base, walked around it, walked away from it, had lunch, walked out the door into the shop and it hit me…wouldn’t this be an awesome clock, hence – clock end table makeover!
Well, not having a clock that size, I had to do some recon work. I bought one – too small, had one, would fit in the old ring, but did not scream clock end table makeover. So over coffee, I was posting and reading, reading and posting, and bam an ad from my favorite store Hobby Lobby popped up. My eyes bugged and I could not believe what I saw, 50% off all clocks in stock (even more on the sale racks). It was happening and this was the sign that this clock end table makeover was going down.
I finished posting for my Facebook readers, and I ran to get dolled up (real clothing instead of my scrub set full of paint and saw dust 😉 ) and I blazed out the door with my feet on fire as hubby just shook his head. I walked into Hobby Lobby and it was like the angels were singing (and we know angels do sing in Hobby Lobby – or is that just me being too loud) ;-). As I looked up, there it stood – just waiting for me to snatch it right off the shelf (the sale shelf that is) – we will not discuss price on this one, well, because hubby is reading and we need to keep a few secretes – right 😉 – but I promise what I paid was worth it.
Into the cart it went with several other items and off for home. I sprang from the car grabbed the clock and sat it on top of the base and bam, it was a true fit, and only eyeballed it in the store! It was made for the base and it was saved by a 50% off Hobby Lobby trip! Gleaming with delight – I got to work. Here’s what I did.
I careful laid the clock onto the work table with a blanket under it. Then I marked the holes from the base where I would attach the clock, and I drilled the holes using my Ryobi 18V drill driver and inserted mollies to make sure of the hold. I sat the clock aside to attach later (Ryobi is sold exclusively at the Home Depot or check out Ryobi Nation.)
The metal part of the base was repainted with Modern Masters Paint – Black Pearl, from Reineke Decorating Center in Des Peres, Mo on Manchester, and letting it dry according to directions. (It was last minute I purchased this color – if I would have known I need this color, I would have asked to have it shipped – but I was glad they had a retailer close by).
The colors you see on the wood base is flat black and a mix of others from the oopsy paint from Behr and the Home Depot, added some dark brown to lighten the cream color and pulled it all together using an awesome paint by Modern Masters Paints.
