I made a fun coffee table out of a thrift store stool and a cable spool top.  A little paint, a little wax, a few screws--quick and easy!

One of those things that I had sitting around waiting for the right "inspiration" and my inspiration time ran out one day when my husband saw the garbage truck coming! What a great idea -- love the clock! Posted: 6:27 pm on April 11th
