We live in Ohio where barn wood abounds and though I can resource it, sometimes it can be expensive because of its growing popularity. Because there’s been so much interest in my barn wood pallet shutters, I thought I would share some more of the projects I made with those same old weathered pallets.
After I made the shutters, I still had a good supply of wood remaining, and I had plans on how to make the most of that wood. The very first thing I wanted to make with them was a clock.
The clock I wanted to replace has been in our possession since we were married 15 yrs. ago. It is the cheapest coordinating clock we could find (we were newlyweds and college students = no money). I must say to my amazement, it is still running because I used the works from inside that clock to build this one made from pallet wood!

What a great clock!!! I love it’s old look. And to think you made it from scrap wood!!!! Very smart!!!
Thank you Yvonne! I’m just glad it works. :o)
Larissa I love everything you made. I need one of those clocks for out on our patio! Thank you so much for stopping by Treasure Hunt Thursday!
Glad to hear it! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m stopping over from Miss Mustard Seed. Your clock is amazing! I have a lot of old wood, so I now know what I’m going to do with it! Thanks for the idea!
Thanks for stopping by Daisy! Honestly, if you have ANY questions when you decide to build one, please feel free to ask away! :o)
I love the clock! Great job! I think my boys would like one similar for their room..
I’ve had a great time perusing your Pinterest boards. We seem to have lots in common. I am a homeschooling mom of 7, and love to do projects when I can. And we are neighbors, since I live in Indiana.
Have a blessed day!
Hi Kelly! I’ve just been checking out your Pinterest boards and blog too, and thought we had so much in common. Great to have you stop by! Keep up the good work. :o)

I love your clock, and the other things you made with pallet boards. My daughters have made some pallet board shelves for their walls and I’m lovin’ the look.
Thank you! Yes, you can do so much with reclaimed wood. I have more projects to share in the future, so check back or follow me. :o)
I just looove your table center piece!I´m a bit at a loss as to what kind of Wood you use, but anything old would do, no?
Thank you! I basically used a weathered shipping pallet, but yes, any wood you like is perfect. I give a little more information in my shutter tutorial if you would like to check it out: http://www.prodigalpieces.com/2013/06/diy-barnwood-shutters.html. :o)

I’m over from Common Ground to tell you I’m in LOVE with your clock-mismatched screws and all!! (totally how I operate, also) It’s just gorgeous, and I think I’m inspired to try one of my own. Thanks so much for sharing this!
Jeanette @ Creating a Life
Ha! Too funny. I just function best I can with 5 kids because, honestly, who wants to get them all ready to run to the store for a tiny package of screws? I’d love to see yours if you do one!
Great projects, love the clock. It’s amazing that you were able to recycle the workings from your old clock..
Thank you, Karen. Yep, the clock is still ticking as I type. :o)
Allison @ The Golden Sycamore says

Well Hello again Larissa – this is the second project I have found and loved at a linky party this afternoon. This one I found over at the Junkers Unite party. Love this pallet clock – I think I’d like to make one in the Spring for our deck. Thanks for the inspiration!
Lori Rowe says
Love, love LOVE, your pallet projects! Thank you for the inspiration! I already had 2 clocks in mind to make and love yours. The plate rack idea is divine, and I’m making that ASAP as I have old plates and hankies I’ve been wanting to display and that is the answer!! Thank you, thank you and God bless you. I homeschooled both my kids up til high school and it is such a blessing.
Love your rustic items! I’ve been wanting to build some items like your plate rack. And right now I have stacks of pallets in my back yard that I’ll be harvesting the slats from to cut down and attach as house shakes to the pallet shed I’m almost done building. I’m curious what you meant by “This shelf was made simply by leaving part of the pallet intact…” I assume, since I’m pretty familiar with various styles of pallets, lol, that you mean the closed end, where the fork cannot pass through. Yes? And that would mean that from each pallet end you cut off that you can cut it into halves or thirds, and cut a piece off another part of the pallet to enclose the ends of the shelf?
