Laundry Room Clock Redo

I am still working on organizing the laundry area, but a couple of the projects are time consuming and I often get distracted with life! While cleaning, I found a boring clock stuck in a pile and decided it would be great for another project.
This is the clock I started with. I got it from Ikea last year for about 2 bucks. I'm sure I was planning on doing something with it, but obviously I never got around to it.
I disassembled the clock and used the face as a template and cut out a new circle with some cute scrapbook paper.
I used the old face to mark off where the number should be and then started gluing on some mini clothespins.
Then, I added a cute quote I cut out of vinyl.
I also spray painted the clock frame to brighten it up. Once it was dry, I put everything back together.
Isn't it so much cuter than what I started with? And, I had everything on hand, even better! Hopefully, it will help me enjoy laundry time more. OK, well I doubt that. At least, I might enjoy my laundry space more.

Love the clock! Super cute.

This looks awesome! I love the colour your chose for the surround and the mini clothespins are adorable! My Silhouette opened up the world of customizing clocks for me and I had lots of fun doing one last month. Now I'm always checking to see whether a clock can be opened to change the face.

All the best,

Claire
