Whalecome Upcycled Clock

When I was making this clock I was thinking of a tourist just like me!  I am a sucker for something that is multi purpose and this project fits the bill.

The price was right for this piece.  I love the rustic paint job and since I make a lot of turquoise projects it was a no brainer to buy it.   I had matching paint so the chicken was easy to “erase”.

The box opens to two rows of hooks for keys or jewelry.  I love things that have dual purpose!

I love serendipity and it was so cool that the bottom simulated waves!  I printed a clipart whale from my photo library and attached it with glue stick.  I found a compass image online and color corrected it to be “antique+turquoise”.  Last, I used my free magazine font letters to spell out “WHALECOME.”

All that was left was to get out my handy drill to make a hole for some battery operated clock works.  DONE!

I giggle thinking of a tourist just like me…”Wow, a clock that is a welcome sign, that holds keys or jewelry!!!”  I’d have this in my hands in a heartbeat!  I’m pretty sure this special little box clock will have a place at Sunrose Gallery and it will be so fun to see who takes it home one of these days.
