I was in a gift shop last week and fell in love with this clock. It was mounted on this cute chevron board. The price was out of this world. I decide I would give it a try and make one on my own. Plus, I thought it would help freshen up my home for spring and Easter! I love to change things around in my home and The white and teal color is so light and airy!
First I stripped the paper from the frame and sanded the wood down. Next, I painted the frame white. While I was waiting for the frame to dry I covered the face of the clock with some paper (I custom cut it to match and taped it down) Then I painted a layer of white for the primer once that was dry I painted a layer of chocolate brown, around the frame of the clock.
Once the white on the frame was dry I decided it was time to choose how the frame would look. I love Chevron! I already have a lot of Chevron in my home so I chose a beautiful Spanish Tile background. Using my Silhouette Machine. I cut the background Stencil out of contact paper. My frame measures 12″ x 12″. Which made it really easy to set up and cut on the Silhouette. I found the SVG file for FREE on Birdscards.com She has some really amazing FREE files! Thank you birdscard!! At this point once the stencil is cut you can pull your stencil off of the backing and stick onto the frame. Paint your second color and let it dry, remove the contact paper stencil. Last step was to glue the clock on the board using E6000 glue. The frame worked out well. Because of the hole in the frame it gives you access to the back of the clock to replace the battery and change the time. This is my $1.00 version of the expensive gift shop clock!
