I need a clock in my library, so I have been ‘googling’ clocks to decide what I am looking for. I have settled on something a bit Art Deco, in green and copper.
Yep, I’m back to being very specific in something I want for a room, but can’t you just see it?
This is my inspiration :
None of these is exactly what I pictured in my mind, but that’s ok, I probably couldn’t afford any of these clocks anyway!
What can I afford? Well, it looks something a little like this one picked up at Savers, my local op shop.
Now to make it into something approaching my idea!
A can of copper coloured spray paint came in useful for the wooden frame.
Next came some Roman numerals. I typed them up using an old school font, then printed them out.
Next a light wash of the same green paint, and they were ready to cut out and stick on.
Then it was just a case of reassembly!
I really feel this has a Deco 1930’s look to it, and for under $5 I am chuffed to bits with it! It now hangs in my library looking awesome!!!
