SYTYCD Week 1- Shabby Chic Inspired Clock

Wow, I can hardly believe it's finally here, I think we have all been on pins and needles, and talk about nervous!!!!!!
I'm so excited to be part of the first 10 SYTYCS
Please go check out all the great entries and vote!!!!!

 For this weeks challenge "Accessory" I decided to make a clock that would fit into my living rooms shabby chic decor. I made the clock using a vintage ceramic ceiling medallion along with a porcelain floral plate.

I found the vintage ceramic ceiling medallion at a flea Market for $5.00 and the floral plate for .25 cents at an estate sale.
P1020387
I drilled a hole into the plate using a ceramic drill bit, this is the first time I've ever drilled into ceramic/porcelain and I must say it was very easy. The important thing is to go slow so it doesn't break.
I then added a strong epoxy to glue the 2 pieces together and added a clock kit that I purchased for $4.99.

So for under $10.50, I have a lovely little clock that fits perfectly in my space.

  32. I just adore what you've done to make your new clock. I so love it and it gives me some ideas. I have never used the drill so I'm a bit nervous. Guess I'd better start with a yard sale find. Thanks for the insperation.
