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.
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.
