DIY: Chalkboard clock from a 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.
