Project of the Week

************Came back in real quick to add this edit- this clock is real size- in my real home- not a mini:)  If only I made minis this well!!*****************

Whew- I barely finished this in time- but here is the mostly finished clock for my Project of the Week.  All I have left to do now is to buy the chiming battery powered clock mechanism.  This first picture shows the woodburning  all finished and then I painted the entire clock cream.

Here are a couple pictures of the clock all finished.  I added burgundy paint and then I sanded some areas back so that the cream would show from underneath.  I have placed it in the dining room next to my comfy chair.  Hope you are having a great weekend!!  I'm off to go catch up on some housework :)

You are just amazing!!! How do you make these tiny, but exact little things?

Kim said...

Julia- you are so sweet but this clock is in normal people size :) I made it from a wall clock my Mom found at the Goodwill- I changed it to a tall grandfather type clock :)

Have to confess I thought it was a miniature too. It goes perfectly in your room and you have done a wonderful job.

That is a neat clock. I like that you made it into a tall clock with the vine up the front. You should be very proud of it! Thanks for sharing.

The clock is just perfect! On those little pictures I almost get confused again that it is mini clock... Maybe you should make both sizes:).
Have a great Sunday.

It's absolutely beautiful, Kim!

Kim said...

Thank you so much everyone- I think it's so fun when something turns out the same way after you make it as it did in your head- and this is one of those times! I told my hubby that people thought it was miniature and he said I should re-make it in miniature too! I think I will have to add another project to the list :)

Great job on the clock, Kim. That burgandy is so warm and pretty. Its the kind of accessory you'll be able to move from room to room and it will always look fab!
