Pottery Barn Wood Clock

You know, any company that can make an unmade bed look good is A-OK in my book and Pottery Barn seems to do just that. I get pretty excited when I see that PB catalog or “inspiration book” as I like to call it sitting in my mailbox. Yeah I know, I’m pretty easy to please. So when I came across this faux clock I had to give it a try.

See it way in the background? I don’t know how they do it, the coffee table is a mess and yet it still looks “put together”, why can’t I pull that off at my house?!?! I’ve got to be lacking some ability.

Moving on…..

I kind of have this thing for clocks, I have them all over the house……………mind you they don’t really have batteries in them so it really defeats the purpose but you know, tomato, tomAto who’s counting.

To start I hit up the lumber store and had the HB calculate how many pieces of wood I needed that would waste the least and get around a 30+inch square. Hey, he is also pretty good at calculating shopping discounts, so I keep him around. I only needed about 4 pieces of lumber and had the nice guy cut them at 30 inches for me which ended up costing me a whole whopping like $6.

Once home I used wood glue and clamped the pieces together overnight.

I had originally taken pictures of the next step but discovered when I uploaded them they were no-where-to-be-found. I’m thinking maybe next time the camera blinks at me and then shuts off that I should probably pay attention………Lesson learned for next time.

Anyhow, it’s pretty simple even without pictures.

1. Glue pieces together

2. Stain wood

3. Paint wood color of choice

4. Find center and draw circle around outside, whatever size you want.

5. Paint circle and roman numerals whatever color you want

6. Distress!!!

And here is my lovely Pottery Barn inspired clock

I decided I didn’t want all the numerals but instead the major four for less “clutter” and added a statement to the center. I love how it turned out and how it looks like it’s been sitting in a old barn for awhile (ha ha get it, barn, pottery barn I kill myself)

 

As always I link to these parties
