Clock D.I.Y.

The other day Dave and I saw this raw clock form while we were browsing through the craft store in Somerset West. So we gathered-up all the clock-parts needed to make the clock and set off for home. 

What you need:
  • a wooden clock form of your choice
  • a clock mechanism 
  • clock arms of your choice
  • any wood primer
  • high gloss spray paint(in the colour of your choice)
  • news paper to work on
D.I.Y. :
  1. Paint your clock form with the wooden primer, at least two layers(leaving to dry between layers)
  2. When dry, spray with high gloss spray paint, as many layers as needed(leaving to dry between layers)
  3. Now, using a different colour high gloss spray paint, spray your clock arms to match your clock/theme.
  4. Attach your clock mechanism at the back of your clock form, fasten your clock arms and Bob's your uncle!

Isn't it just a beauty? It's so quick and easy to make and it really turns that boring white wall into a classy, yet simplistic focal point.

Hope you enjoy making your own clock as much as I enjoyed making this one:)
