Now....it's a bit messy and wrinkly...and it looks so much more inviting to me....Yaaaay....that's one less chore I have to do every morning.
Oh....and see the euro shams in the front....with the lace....I've got lots of those lined up for my etsy shop....they're coming soon.

Here's some of the things you'll need to make it....adhesive putty to attach your numbers and clock mechanisim to the wall....
some silver metallic paint and brush to paint your numbers, clock hands and clock mechanisim....
some wood numbers...I purchased 2 different kinds of wooden numbers. (different fonts and sizes to make it look more like the Roost clock)
and a clock mechanisim and clock hands....and that's it. I purchased all the items except the paint on etsy....just look under wood numbers and clock mechanisims for the clock parts.
Now you too can have a fabulous clock for only $27.94 (it would've been less but I purchased extra wood numbers). The photo above is of my DIY clock (I decorated my cabinet similar to Maria's so you could see how alike the clocks really are) and the photo below is of Maria's clock.
So....here's the breakdown....
silver metallic paint $1.49
wood numbers in 2 different fonts and sizes $11.50
clock mechanisim and hands $14.95
for a grand total of $27.94
that's a savings of $82.06....pretty good huh? Oh...and just so ya know....this is a big clock...it measures 2 feet wide in the center.
So...what are you gonna be doing this weekend ;o)
all photos by me which stink...(I so need a new camera)...except the last photo is courtesy of Maria the great!

What started as a simple makeover project....has become so much more....and I can't wait to share the news with you soon.
The photo above is a hint at what I'll be doing for the Urban Plains Project....any guesses.
