So the boys room, I bet you thought I had forgotten about it. No but I had run out of inspiration, motivation and cash! So it was put on hold for a bit.
Then I got this clock blank while I was away for $2 and knew what to do.
I cut a space invader out on my Zing (cutting machine)
I went shopping for clock mechanism and they were $30..um insane so I bought a $3 clock and pulled it apart and used the mechanism from that - Warning don't be tempted to use your hands, the slightest bend in the clock hands will render it useless (learned the hard way on a previous attempt) I used a pair of pliers and gently pried the hands off.
I attached it to the back and there you go a custom clock and for $5.
DIY Delight or disaster? I like it, cheap, quick, easy! What's not to love? I'll tell you what's not to love, ticking apparently. I went in the boys room and noticed it missing from the wall. I panic looking around for it when I note the eye movement happening between the boys. So I demanded to know where it was, Samuel pulls it out of the closet and said, "it ticks....LOUD" Me "You have to be kidding me" Samuel, "no it's really cool, what if we just remove the battery". Smack my head, really! So for them Disaster!!
