Greek key inspired DIY clock…

Happy Monday!! And Happy July 1st! Today I have a gorgeous Greek key inspired DIY clock project by Jen of City Farmhouse!!!!!
Happy Summer!
I hope you are all having a great start to this fantastic season!
My name is Jen & I am really excited to be back here contributing from my blogCity Farmhouse.
Through the years I have come to know & embrace my style better:).
It has been a journey to find it but once I took the time to get to know myself & my family in our new home, it just came, it flowed and it was effortless.
My style evolved into- “Modern Rustic Country.”
I like to mix natural textures, rustic details with modern simplicity.
Keeping this in mind I tackled this project last week….
A Greek Key Inspired DIY Clock.

It is super easy & fun, this is what you do….
1. Find a base. I used a 16″ x 16″ square piece of MDF with a 3/8″depth.
2. Buy your clock kit. I purchased from the craft store, you can also buy online. I purchased the larger hands separately.
3. Choose your paint or stain. I used a vinegar & steel wool solution.
4. Drill hole in center, I used a 1/2″ drill bit. Make sure you measure your clock insert.
5. Tape off your Greek Key Design or any design you choose. Be sure to press firmly around edges.
6. Using a foam brush layer your paint. I used Revere Pewter(B.M).
7. Pull off tape right away. Let dry & sand.
8. Seal with a wax, I used Anne Sloan’s Clear Wax.
9. Follow the directions from your clock kit to insert clock parts.
10. Hang & Enjoy!
