Too Much time on my hands: Time is on My Side

Time is on My Side



 

Below is my amazing and HUGE inspiration "clock" from Pottery Barn.




I knew it wouldn't look exactly the same, because I was only going to use what I had on hand, but was trying to get as close as possible.

Materials
wood
stain
paint (one color for wood and one for numerals)
mending braces and screwdriver
picture hanger and hammer
roman numeral printouts and pencil
marker
sandpaper

(Forgive me, my laptop died and took this set of photos with it....sigh)

1. I started with two 2 by 4's and cut each in half, but use any size you want
2. I stained the tops and sides of each
3. I flipped them over and lined them up, being sure the quirks were in the right places
4. I used mending braces to attach them to each other
5. I also attached a picture hanger to the top


6. I dry brushed some white paint messily over the entire project
7. I traced a circle onto the board to use as my "clock" shape
8. I traced the outline of my numerals on the back of my paper
9. I flipped the paper over, placed at the appropriate spot on my clock (double check it is facing the right way), and scribbled (hard) over the entire number



10. The outline was very faint, but enough for me to follow
11. I traced the outline with my marker
12. I filled in the numerals and I painted the circle and some dashed lines around it
13. After it dried I used my palm sander to rough it up (you could just do it by hand with sand paper)




After I finished, I realized that on most clocks, including my inspiration, the roman numerals are facing out. Like the 6 should be upside down, whoopsie!


In hindsight, I would have used a smaller font size

  

Eh, it still looks ok to me! Live and Learn!



And here it is in it's (maybe) final resting place


P.S. Well, really its final resting place may be in your home! Come over here and find out how!
