Pottery Barn inspired clock

  • August 25, 2016

I wanted a large clock to go above my fireplace but didn't want to pay the price. I had left over pallet boards from a pallet wall I had previously made so I went to it. Just a few boards, stain, spray paint and some clock hands later and ta da. It has been about 1-2 months since I made this and the time is still always right.

  • This looks awesome! Way to put your skills to work and save some money at the same time. The finish looks great. Your materials list stain and spray paint- did you use a combination of these two to get this finish?

    • I did. After putting the pallets together, I sanded it down and stained it. I then applied vinyl stickers for the roman numerals and gave it a couple coats of white spray paint. My 2 year old loved helping me peel the stickers off. After that I just gave it a light sanding to give it a little distressed looked! This was my first time doing any type of not straight cuts, so not too bad!

  • Oh, now it's clear! You peeled the stickers off after the spray paint so the numbers show that rich brown underneath! Truly awesome work! Thanks for sharing this with us.
