Repurposed Brand New Clock

6:00 AM

I'm repurposing my brand new clock...

Why?

I just loved it... 
but it didn't work. 

Happily the company returned my money 
the minute I mentioned the problem.

They told me to keep the clock and to 
"make something out of it" ....

Hahaha 
they must know me!

So I did... 
I took the clock apart...

Now I'm loving both pieces!

The metal frame was awesome...

I cut out a circle of cork 
the same size as the inner circle of the metal frame.

Using E6000 I glued the cork to the inner circle 
then lined it with a length of repurposed rope.

What happened to the rest of the clock you ask?

 I originally bought it for my gallery wall...
and the fact that it no longer works didn't matter a bit!

I have no shortage of clocks in this house... 
they are something I have a serious problem hoarding.

  3. I have a problem with clocks, Susan! I have them all over our home. I really love the looks of this one. I love how you were able to get two things out of the one clock. It looks great in your gallery wall. I also used a non-working big clock in our entry gallery wall.

  5. Great idea. I saw a similar one in Homesense that was broken. Argh! I should have grabbed it.

  7. So smart of you! I once had a company tell me to keep some ruffle fabric and refunded me. I don't quite remember the reason I wanted to return it but I do remember the stellar customer service!
