    OhMyGosh! I spent a couple hours scouring the house tonight for something unique to make a clock out of for my mantel. Yours is perfect…and I have everything on hand that I need. My square nails are from our house…kept everyone I came across when we remodeled. I can’t wait for the weekend so I can get to this project! I’ll post when I’m done and send them back to you for your great tutorial. Thanks!

    I really like that you used nails for the numbers. It keeps everything consistent and neat. What a great, inexpensive idea.

    Hi! I just found this site today & I have to say that I LOVE many of your projects! I also live in the wet, wet, wet & muddy Willamette Valley & have for about 1/2 my life, the rest over in sunny Central Oregon! I loved this project & wanted to share one that I had come up with. I had an old, large (about 24″) wall clock that I had purchased at Win-Co several years ago for $10 on the clearance shelf, but children & life had damaged it past working condition. I recently pulled it out of the garage, were it’d been stashed since the kitchen remodel, & took it apart. I bought a new clockwork mechanism w/white hands & then painted the face with chalkboard paint. I then chalked in the numbers, attached the new hands & have a totally cool clock!

      Ooo, you and I do think alike, Syrie – reusing and chalkboard! ;) Thanks for sharing this clever idea!
