Well I will spare the details, it was a terrible clock from walmart.  My friend bought 5 thinking that he was going to do a time-zone spread in their office (him and his wife are flight attendants)  That didn't end up happening. 
Last time I was at their house they basically threw this clock at me and told me to keep it.  I was pretty sure if I could get it apart I would decorate it.  Worked out pretty well.
I just picked out some paper from my stash, went to hobby lobby and bought some numbers, and this is the end product!

Ironically enough it matches perfectly my two artsy pieces in my dining room.  No intention to that.

And this last one is as "before" as i can provide.  I ripped it apart to quick to get a  picture of it.  I taped the old paper face to the front  Grin


Thanks for looking!

I may not be perfect, but I'm so close it's almost eerie.

You're right it looks perfect with your artwork.
I think the right paper can fix just about anything.
Nice work!

So cool! My dad has horrible taste in clocks, so I might sneakily do something like this!  Tongue

So cool! I have one that looks about the same as the before shot in my office, and I'm going to try this this weekend.

I've got two of those clocks sitting in my library... I think I'm going to have to fix them up. I've got some steampunk themed scrapbook paper... Smiley
