Old clock turned photo frame


Old-clock-turned-photo-frame

I bought this vintage-inspired clock about 2 years ago. It was one of those battery suckers that never told time accurately and only looked pretty. So when it finally stopped working even though it had a fresh battery, I was kind of happy *insert evil background music*.... You know, because I get to alter it!


Of course, even in "death", the clock had to torment me a little more. It took a bit of time to actually dismantle it. *winks* This was from a few weeks ago....


This was from this past weekend...mid-way through the process when I was auditioning embellishments....yes, it was a tough audition, a lot of them didn't make the cut! *LOL*


Now,  I didn't start out thinking it would a photo frame but since I had multiples of a photo of my parents, I went for it.


Their heads form a heart. :)


White lace trim is just divine! Thanks Lizzy Hill! :)


It was a fairly easy albeit time-consuming project. But it turned out really pretty. What do you think?
