I am always on the lookout when I’m around and about looking for unique items I can alter, and repurposed. I was at a garage sale when I found this beautiful tray for $.50 cents. I knew right away this tray will make an amazing clock for my studio. This will make a great gift for any occasion as well.


Let’s begin!
  • Serving tray, Triple thicke spray sealant, clock parts, drill.
  • Drill a hole onto the center of the tray, follow mfg direction.

      Add the clock center, seal with the triple thicke let dry.
      Add the clock parts, voila done in less than 10 minutes.

      Have a great week, don’t forget to sign up to be a follower.  We are looking for #5020
