I've had plenty of clocks on my walls, and while I tried hard to find timepieces that matched up to our style and needs most lacked the character I really wanted. This piece from Dwelling In Happiness caught my eye and I'm excited to get a chance to try it out soon. The pieces are simple are easy to find, and this first step into a bit of metal working is good.
The thing I like about making items myself is the ability to make them exactly like I want. While I like the look of the dark wood, I might go for a patterned back, or a clean quote.
Take a look at the full post here for a material list and more pictures of the full build.
