Big, Huge, Pottery Barn Inspired, Wall Clock

Large wall clocks are everywhere these days and I wanted to put my own spin on the trend. You might think that this clock looks pretty much like all the rest, but mine stands 53 inches high…that’s nearly four and a half feet of clock goodness…I am literally up to my neck in clock and more importantly, since I have a lot of supplies, I made it for FREE.
Time: 8 Hours Cost: $10 Difficulty: Medium
For supplies, I’m using a wire spool end and a bunch of pallet wood.If you don’t happen to have a wire spool, you could make the center circle out of even more pallet wood or a precut table round available at hardware stores.
I started my oversized, gigantic, extremely large clock by laying out a pallet wood border all around my wire spool top.I drew a circle around where the spool top will go removed the spool top, then within that circle I applied construction adhesive and plopped the spool top back down.
To further strengthen the bond, on the back side, each pallet piece got screwed into the top.
Turned back over, I can now start attaching my pallet wood outer circle.The  outer ring of  pallet wood was cut with a handheld jigsaw then with a nail gun, nailed to the previous layer of pallet wood.
Before painting sand all rough edges and splinters.
Paint as desired.I highlighted all my nooks and crannies (and there were a lot) with black chalk paint.
I followed my black chalk paint with a coat of white chalk paint.
This is how I do all my oversized signs… (1) print out the lettering on your computer and tape back together.  (2) Use a pencil to scribble on the back of the lettering to act as carbon paper. (3)Tape the lettering to your wood sign and use a pen to go over the outline of each letter.
What you should be left with is a faint outline of each letter. Fill in your outlines with black paint. Do the same with the Roman Numerals.
Sand the painted surfaces once more revealing some of the black paint and wood edges and softening the lettering and numbers.Finish the clock with a coat of clear wax, antique wax or a combination of the two.
Not often I can show you a before and after in one photo.I'm limited in Hometalk with how many pictures I can include so if you need more photos, more step by step, the fonts I used for the lettering, how I set up my lettering, make sure you click on the link below.If you have any questions just ask :)
