Clocking In

Clocking In
I LOVE this idea!  Better After reader Susan needed a big clock to fill a big space, but she had a small budget. Good thing she has a big brain!  Because she figured this circular piece, which used to be the mirror of an old vanity set, would work perfectly instead.  She hand painted the clock face, attached a clock kit from Hobby Lobby and before you know it, had an enormous clock on her hands!  Ha ha, get it?  Hands?!   Eh, never mind.
Great job Susan!

    Some people just have too much skill. Seriously, that paint job is so cool. Love it!

    Awe, y’all are really sweet! The paint treatment was SUPER easy! Base coat was dark brown, then painted on a crackle medium (right by all the craft paints), then the creamy color on top. The numbers were the hardest. Finding stencils that were tall enough, but not too fat proved to be impossible. I just made my own. Printed them and then traced them on stencil sheets and then burned them with my stencil burner (an exacto knife will do the trick, but the burner is much easier).
