It's TIME For a Goodwill Redo... 'Cause It's a Clock. Get It?

I am very aware that my subject line isn't funny.  You should be aware that when I typed it, I did a snort-laugh.  That's how I roll.

A few weeks ago, I showed you a clock that I found at Goodwill.

Now, I had some grand plans for this baby... I was going to put some sort of catchy phrase on it like, "IT'S TIME FOR DINNER" or "LAUNDRY TIME!".  But I have a hard time being 'catchy'.  So I gave that idea up.  Instead, I took off the back...

Which is super-simple.  The next time you find a clock at Goodwill, snatch it up.  It's so simple to give it a makeover.  And I did, by spray painting the frame and mod podging some scrapbook paper to the face.  I thought about putting numbers on it but ran out of time that day... and I liked it without the numbers, so THERE.

It is a totally different clock!  And I spent $0.96 on the clock... the rest of the stuff I had on hand.  LOVE IT.

I link up at these great parties!


  1. I really like this! :) Love how you could change it to match a new style in a room. Will you add numbers eventually or leave it? I kind of like it without actually!

  2. Very nice ;-) I wish I was creative...I would have never thought about doing this! Thanks for sharing, I may just use this idea for the nursery I still need to decorate ;-)

  3. LOVE IT! What a great transformation. Some days, I wish I could have a facelift that would be that easy :)

  4. Love it too! I love it when simple and easy looks elegant and expensive!

  5. I love this! Wil definately be trying this.
    By the way, I've nominated you for the Sunshine Award, check it out on my blog, createdinawe.blogspot.com.

  6. I love it! Sounds easy to do - will definitely have to try this. Thanks! (BTW, I liked the title, too.)

  7. Love the pun-ny title AND the gorgeous clock makeover - so creative and fun! Just wanted to let you know I featured it in my roundup of clock re-dos and makeovers here. Feel free to check it out if you want and hope you like it! : )
