Well, my room makeover is happening slowly but surely. I can’t believe it’s bee almost a year since I started this. Today, I’m sharing a super was diy for your own customized clock.
I love just about anything wooden and clocks are no exception. Especially ones that are just open with no casing or glass. Follow along to make your own. The best part about this diy is that it can be personalized to whatever you want.
Gather all the supplies in the top picture:
- wooden clock face ( here )
- clock parts ( here )
- black acrylic paint
- painters tape
- sponge brush
1 | Start by marking the 12, 3, 6, and 9 positions on the face using the ruler.
2 | Next, fill in the other number slots.
3 | This part I did because I wanted a certain look to my lines, but you can use this printable if you would like to make it easier. Take your tape and make a rectangle around each dot on your face. I measures a 1/4 in from the edge of the face and then put my tape down. Then I measured an inch from where the edge of the tape started towards the center and marked the other side. I eyeballed the width of each rectangle.
4 | Paint in each section. Let this dry for about an hour and then paint a second coat if you want your lines to look really black.
5 | Once the paint is dry, remove the tape and assemble your clock parts according to the instructions provided.
And that’s it! Mount your clock on the wall and enjoy the beautiful aesthetic it brings to your room. You can get so creative with this. Here are a few other ideas you could try ( here, here, here, here, here ).
Let me know which is your favorite idea, or if you have something completely different in mind.
