I have been spending way too much time at the local thrift stores.  I have become obsessed with finding crappy things that I can bring home and make fabulous.  So, my most recent find was this:



It was missing the clock face and two of the wooden rays.  I knew for the low low price of 3.99 I could make it better!

So, THIS is what it became!!  I absolutely LOVE it!!  It was repainted with acrylic paints an sealed with Mod Podge.  I took apart an old clock we had laying around for the clock guts. (the body of the old clock was used for a day of the dead shrine that I'll post later).

Fantastic recycling.
It's fun and bright and I would never have guessed it was broken before.
