Mindi of My Love 2 Create and contributor for My Repurposed Life loved Pottery Barn’s rustic wood and iron clock so much that she decided to make her own – just on a much larger scale! I love all the detail Mindi put into making this clock as awesome as her inspiration, including the plywood […Read More]
Ashley from Bigger Than the Three of Us is in the midst of a kitchen remodel. Even though the decorating part is still a ways away, Ashley says she can’t help thinking and dreaming about that fun part. Ashley ended up falling hard for a white minimalist clock from West Elm and was able to recreate it using a plate. The curve of the plate mimics the look of West Elm’s clock to perfection and makes for such an easy DIY!
Since moving from a condo to a house, Jennifer from Brave New Home says she’s been enamored with anything house-related. Thus, she was inspired she create a house-shaped chalkboard clock from foam board. Amazingly, Jennifer was able to pull it off for less than $2 since she had most of the supplies on hand! Wouldn’t this make the cutest housewarming gift?
Ellora from Creatively Southern was inspired to turn an old tabletop into a large, functioning clock for her home office makeover. She says, “I’ve been searching for a large clock and finally found the look I wanted, but at a hefty price tag. Hefty like $279! . No way I can squeeze that in the budget no matter what excuse I come up with. So I made my own version of my favorite Pottery Barn clock for only $20!” That’s an extra $250 Ellora can put toward her room makeover. Don’t you love when you can DIY for so much less and, as a result, do so much more?!?
Lindsay from Makely Home kicked off her Knocktoberfest with a fun DIY clock project she whipped up. Loving a $99 clock from CB2, but of course not wanting to dish out that much dough, Lindsay created her own with a few poplar boards and a clock kit. This is so easy, and you sure can’t beat $20 for a large, stylish clock!
Why spend $300 on a wooden clock face when you can make your own for a mere $10?!? Decorate Me Diana turned to her wood stash and a few other basic do-it-yourselfer supplies to create a rustic clock face that rivals those from Pottery Barn. For the numerals, Diana simply printed them from the computer and then used some good old fashion scissors and Mod Podge to apply them to the clock face – no cutting machine or hand painting required!
Kara of Kara Paslay Designs totally came through on her promise to replicate a rustic wood clock from Pottery Barn. I love the split wooden disc left over from another project that Kara selected for the clock face. I mean… does it get any more rustic? Kara’s clock is definitely full of one-of-a-kind charm just like her inspiration!
It was the end to a great day when Doreen from Hymns and Verses scored a free tabletop on top of all her other junk store treasures. Doreen knew she wanted to make a large wall clock using the tabletop and pulled it off for only $15 with stunning results. She did a stellar job hand cutting out all the numerals and then tracing and painting them onto the clock face. Hands down, I’d pick Doreen’s creamy white clock over Ballard’s $229 clock any day!
