Wall Clock Face Knockoff: Guest Remodel

02 August 2010

Angela @ Unexpected Elegance replicated a Pottery Barn wall clock face.

Alright, I'll admit it...I'm a little bit of a NERD! In my spare time, meaning minutes at a time, I look back over catalogs. So, yesterday, while the girls were taking their nap, I revisited my Pottery Barn mag. Here's something that caught my eye. (It's different every time!)

Pottery Barn
I loved the clock face on the wall!

My husband is normally really great about letting me run with my ideas. So after we put the girls to bed last night I "ran" to Joann. I bought two hoops and some wooden sticks.

I removed the outer hoop and started working around the, soon to be, clock face. I used Gorilla Glue, but I'm sure wood glue would work too. I did not cut any of the sticks before I put them on, I just tried to line up the inside and leave the overhang on the outer edge.

The "X" was the trickiest and I just used whatever I could find to hold them down. I let it dry overnight.

This morning I took a razor and scored the sticks where I needed to remove them.

Then I used a pair of pliers to break them off. Try not to pull on the wood, it will splinter. Just hold the stick, so it doesn't detach and work the pliers up and down. It will remove the wood clean.

Here's the "cleaned up" version.

Then I used some leftover spray paint. (My husband jokes that I am loosing "LOTS" of brain cells with all the spray painting I do...but it truly will transform just about anything!)

And here's the finished project. I am not sure where it will go permanently, but I was so excited, I wanted to share it!

The wall clock face turned out great!
 I love how it looks!  
What do you think?

I got your button and plan to make one of these myself. If and when I do, I'll be sure to link back to you=)

I looked at the craft store tonight and didn't find the sticks...where in the store did you find yours? And how many inches are in between the outer hoop and the inner hoop? It looks like you went two sizes down from the larger hoop.

THanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon=)

That turned out great! I actually own that clock that's in the catalog. I saw it in there just yesterday and thought "hey that's my clock!" I bought it at a home decor store five years ago. I love it and have gotten a lot of compliments. I LOVE your solutions and creativeness to make one yourself!

This turned out amazing! I do the same thing with my magazines..so no judge here! ;) If you study them long enough, that's when the ideas finally come to you...when your not willing to break down and just go buy it.
