My lovely wife bought this junk clock at an auction! Oh, the possibilities!!
Junk Clock Flip!
This bad boy was in some pretty bad shape. It's a quartz movement and the batteries leaked all over the inside of it. The bottom, back and top were also dinged up and loose.
I fixed the bottom first and then my wife removed all of the clock parts and gave the case a good sanding. Check out the wood pieces that fell off the top while she was sanding.
I fixed the top and gave the case a new back. After this my wife told me to get lost and turned on her super awesome crafting skills! First, she painted the case in the colors she wanted to peak through the final color coat.
Awesome right! She sanded away the black to get the green details and even took some points all the way to the wood. She waxed the entire case down with Briwax when she finished.
Shelf time! My wife invited me back for this part.
These are the bottoms of the shelves.
You can tile onto wood by using epoxy products. Check out my post for more details:
