Vinyl Clock

Here is a super cute home decor creation that I'm pretty proud of.  


 So for the past year I have had this vinyl clock kit collecting dust in the corner of my old apartment saving it for when we moved to our grad school home.  However, I wanted to always be able to take it with me wherever I moved to.  I asked a good friend from Provo, who is great with carpentry, to cut me out a wooden circle.  I was SO thrilled when I saw it because it was exactly what I had wanted.  

So after about a week of being in Penn, I decided to paint it.  However, the color I had in my head didn't really exist so I had to put my creative skills to the test.  I painted it the color we bought, but that turned out to be too bright.  Then I painted over that bright green with a vanilla color, but that turned out to be too light.  So finally I did some mixing of the two colors and after some trial and error, I came up with this great color that I am completely happy with.  I also have to thank my wonderful husband for attaching the vinyl for me.  He does all my vinyl for me because I'm always afraid I'll mess it up.  He does it so much better than I would!  Thanks honey!!!


Now the only negative part is that the actually clock hour and minute hands don't work.  For some reason it worked for about a day and then it just stopped.  Every now and then it will work, but then stop at the exact same time as before.  Strange, huh?!  Oh, well.  I'm sure we can find a replacement for that.  I'm just happy that I got it done.  And I would love to know what you think of it!!!!
