Tic Toc

What a productive day of flea marketing, garage sales, and thrifting.  Okay, so I've been thinking I need something to go here:

I ran across a lazy susan at Goodwill for $3.  It seemed like the perfect size for a clock.  I needed paint and Grafix Rub-onz, all of which I already had.  I went ahead and dry brushed the lazy susan with colors from the room.  Next, I used some digital scrapbooking numbers and printed them onto the Rub-onz.  Then, I carefully cut around the numbers with an extremely small border.  The Rub-onz will leave a halo effect around the image rubbed on.  My wonderful hubby routered out a spot for the clock mechanize, which I also had already.  After about an hour, this is what I ended up with:

I'm linking up with DIY Show Off project parade.


  1. Your clock turned out wonderful and it is perfect for your empty wall space. Love the oars and your slipcovered sofa. I am not familiar with Grafix Rub-onz. I'll have to check these out.

  2. In just a matter of days, I am watching you completely transform this room.. It is like watching a flower bloom with a time-lapse camera!

    You are wonderful!

  3. That clock looks gorgeous and is perfect in that formerly empty spot! I love the way it looks, very vintage and chic. Now I'm looking for a wood round I can use to make my own!

  4. Wow, that looks awesome! It is just what that wall needed. I was at Pottery Barn this weekend and they had similar oars like you have on your wall, but they were like $100 each! Ouch. This room is really coming together. Love it.


I would really enjoy knowing what you think. I love getting your comments!
