Large wall clock- it's functional!

I was gifted a short little table, and instantly I knew...it would become a clock.  I had been admiring large wall clocks, but not their price tag.  Ever since I finished my wall of mirrors (scroll to end of post to see), I needed something different for over my mantel.  Mirrors on every wall just wasn't working.

Ugly duckling to beautiful swan

So many of us pass by these tables.  They are outdated and chunky.  Let's look at it in another light.  Here is how I took this table from ugly duckling to beautiful swan.

Creating a chaise- 2 chairs combined

Many of you that have been to my blog before know I like to create different things.  Building is one of my favorite things to do.  This project is one of those!  I saw the inspiration on Pinterest here.

Making a hall tree with a bench seat

I got a set of doors for free!  That's the  best price, wouldn't you agree?  I was at a garage sale and leaning up next to there garage were 2 doors in a pile of scraps and metal.  I asked if they were throwing the doors away, and they said "yes"!  I asked if I could have them, and they came home with me.  This is one of those doors.

Catching up

I've been a little MIA and I have to admit, it's been wonderful!  Don't worry, the projects are still getting done, but I took a little vacation and some how after that it didn't seem all that important to worry about what I would post about.  Today I am just gong to share some miscellaneous projects to get me back into the swing of things.
