Aged “Metal” Industrial Clock Makeover

Bliss of Bliss Ranch took the old clock from her wall and gave it a totally new look with some ingenuity and parts from the garage. The MDF frame looks amazingly like metal thanks to Bliss’ handiwork with paint. Now Bliss says she’s looking twice at the rest of the clocks in her house to see how she can morph them into something better too!

Bliss was inspired by the 1940s Gymnasium Clock from Restoration Hardware.
