Have you seen this awesome clock? I have. I did. And I thought with all the left over cutlery from my wedding, that I might be able to make something along these lines.

I would just have to find the clock to use in the center.
Enter my parents and a random trip through Ross and they found this bad boy
Which not only turned out to be quite inexpensive, it was absolutely ideal for this project. All the hard work of affixing the cutlery to the clock was already done, so it was just a matter of choosing my colours, taking apart the clock and getting to work.
I’m pretty sure i mentioned at one point that I was addicted to RustOleum, right? For the record, Ultra 2x is the shit. I have used it many, many times and I would like to have its babies, but thats gross. And probably illegal in VA.
So i divvied up the spoons and forks and prepared my work area for some spray action.
Now…looking back, I should have sprayed the back of the cutlery first (as it is not visible when the clock is up) and finished with the fronts, but i didn’t. I ended up doing three very, very light coats on the front of the cutlery, three on the back and then a fourth light coat on the front to touch up a few areas that were not-so-perfect.
Because of the light coats, the drying time was pretty minimal. Over the course of about two hours I sprayed all my coats and then brought everything back inside to be put back together.
A pretty simple process…a few screws, some philips head action and some Bridezillas for company. Sue me. I like watching wacky people on tv and wondering how they got there in the first place
So how did it all turn out? She still got married.I know right? Unbelievable.
Oh, the splorck?
I love it!
