Just waiting for a home....

Just waiting for a home....


I purchased this table base last year.  It was bright yellow & ADORABLE!  I thought it would go perfectly in my daughter's room as a night stand.  Turns out it was way to big.  (I am really not much into measuring)  A friend found this large clock, I removed the clock parts, and attached it to the table.  I also toned down the yellow with a black stain. 

It is definitely different....now I don't know what to do with it!  My children's school has an auction each spring, it may end up on the auction block!  But it was fun finding a "different" top!

Thanks for sharing!
