Pallet board clock Pottery Barn Knock off

Monday, March 8, 2021

This was one of my favorite DIY art. I turned an old pallet into a rustic clock. I did this project about 10 years ago. So sadly I don't have the step by step directions with pics but I still really love this old world clock.

I had seen this old world type clock at Pottery Barn. It wasn't an actual working clock just for d├ęcor. It was so long ago I can't find the images to even show you.
I Had received a shipment on a pallet, I was so excited to use the pallet board for this project.
I started pulling off nails and disassembling the pallet so I could have just the boards.

I laid all the boards flat and attached three boards across the back to secure the wood. I used old roofing nails to give it a more rustic look.

I then stained the boards in a black stain. I roughed it up a little with sandpaper to really give it the old rustic look.

Now this was before I had a projector or knew how to transfer letters so I would up printing the roman numbers and tracing around them in chalk. The labor of love...
Once I had the outline I was able to paint in the numbers with a small brush and white paint. I went over the entire clock with a brown stain to really give it the aged look.
