I was at a little estate sale and came across this old metal picnic table. It was rusted, had chippy paint, the base was bent and awkward but I had to do something with this beautiful piece of metal. As I lifted the table sideways and saw the rust lines underneath it..... I knew this had to be a clock.
I have 10' ceilings and this clock is about 4' wide as it is tall and fits perfectly in the kitchen area.
The table was only $1 and the clock ware was purchased at clockparts.com for only $24. It was really easy to assemble and I screwed two small pieces of wood at the top and at the bottom so the clock could sit against the wall without being lopsided.
The clock hands are almost 18" long and the motor only runs on a AA battery
So the next time you come across that old, chipped, rusted metal table, maybe you can make your very own clock or better yet, find something even more creative to do with it!
