DIY: MAKE CHALKBOARD CLOCK FROM POT LID

I have so much fun stuff going on today. I'm going to do a photo shoot at my sister's house, which I'm really excited about. Then I'm eagerly awaiting new books from Amazon that will be arriving today. I just love getting inspiration in the mail. Last but not least, I have this great project to share with you; a chalkboard clock made from a pot lid.

This is probably one of the most fun and awesome projects I have made in a long time. You see I'm so excited about this project and the result, that I just can't get my hands down :) And I'll tell why this was such a great project. First; turning something old into something new makes me feel really creative. Second; the cost of making this clock was next to nothing and it was easy to make. Third; you can give this clock your own personal touch and design. Or maybe let your kids decorate it. Last, but not less important. It looks super trendy and gorgeous. Chalkboard paint and beautiful type goes so well together.

You'll need these materials:

- pot lid (drill hole for clockwork, if it's not already there) 
- chalkboard paint
- clock movement + hands
- white acrylic paint
- design of your choice (or use my design)
- chalk 
- spray lacquer (spray lacquer for coal drawings works fine)

I hope you have as much fun with this project as I did. 
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a fun and creative Thursday

Your clock is awesome! Love the graphic on it! I will feature it tomorrow! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home! Sherry
This is stinkin amazing and my favorite thing I have seen in forever. I am totally using the idea and making one for my husbands home office. Thanks so much for this amazing inspiration! I have a link party going on this weekend-it opens Friday at 6 and I would be super jazzed if you shared this project! Kim http://too-much-time.com
Pinning this! I think this is such a great idea on so many levels -- thanks for sharing it with us and for the helpful tutorial!
Are there any way you could add the instructions on how to attach/where to get the clock components (ie power source, hands, etc)? I'm wondering how to attach them without screws which would deface the beautiful clock you made. Thanks for the insights!
