Rustic decor items can wreak havoc on the checkbook. Lucky for us Mindi from MyLove2Create describes how to make a rustic clock similar to one from Pottery Barn. With some scrap wood and a trip to Hobby Lobby Mindi made the clock for about $20.
From cutting the wood, to setting up the roman numerals, the clock project will take several steps to complete. Mindi shares a great deal of how-to in her article. For example, she tells how she achieves a natural stain look.
I used my “natural stain” which is 0000 steel wool and vinegar in a jar that has sat for at least a day or two.
The clock will have an old world craftsmanship element to it when it is complete.
This would look great in a bedroom, living room, or any room that you want to add a rustic charm to. Mindi provides lots of close up pictures for you to use for your project. If you have scraps left over from other projects, this clock would be a great item to make and show off to your friends.

This clock is lovely - I had no idea you could stain wood using vinegar!
