Tick Tock, Look how I made a Clock!

I went to Goodwill a couple of weeks ago to find some flannel shirts to make some fall pillows.  It took me 10 minutes just to find a parking spot!  I struck out on the shirts but as I was waiting in line I spied a good frame.

unfortunately it had this really cool suede print of a dog in it.  Ivy kept saying "ahhh how cute!".  Little did she know that the dog had to go.  I love the shape of the frame though so the dog came home with us.  It sat for a couple of weeks until I finally decided to make a clock with it. 

First I took the dog print out, then sanded and painted the frame with American Accents Canyon Black  spray paint. 

While the paint dried I used spray glue and covered the dog print with burlap. 

I cut out the 12,3,6 and 9 out of some scrap fabric (I'm loving houndstooth right now!) I just wasn't digging the burlap though.

So I switched to the red print which is actually my favorite fabric right now.  Its a plaid AND polka dots.  My favorites.  Anyways.  I hot glued the numbers down and marked the center.

I used this clock kit from Michaels and used my 40% off coupon so it was only $3.50.!

I sprayed the hands with some Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint.

Here it is on the wall.  I'm still trying to figure out something to put in the center.  I love it though, even if I can see how late it is getting when I'm trying to finish a project now.

I''m linking this to DIY Day on A Soft Place To Land.



  1. How fun! What a great project. I love how whimsical it is!


  2. Wonderful project! I have been wondering what I am going to do when the wall clock we were given for our wedding almost 10 years ago finally dies. Now I know! Thanks. :)

  3. Super cute. I wish I had a room for a clock. No matter where you are we can see either the VCR or the microwave so clocks seem redundant.

  4. I've been kicking around an idea similar to this for a while. Yours came out GR8!The red really pops. Thanks for inspiring.

  5. How creative! I will have to mark this in my inspiration file!! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Great re-purpose! That's quite a transformation, you did a great job!


I la la love hearing from you!
