Upcycled Wall Clock Fun Times Two

While maybe at times I pass up on cast-offs that cross my path, the one thing I can assuredly say I can’t resist is wood. The wood can be old, worn, beaten down, and even just like these two broken tiered stands, just needing new life.  They are my dynamic duo about to get a brand new life as an upcycled wall clock. Woot!

I’ve said it before, but the wood section of the thrift store is a gold mine. You can recreate wood a dozen times over and it still looks good. For instance, here is my ragamuffin group in their ugly stages – a footstool, a shelf, a wall decor piece, and some sort of cubby. Read more
