TIME IS TICKING...

ok so I am still working on my sweet redo projects but of course have to take on another, one of my favorite blogs is Vintage Revival, she had a DIY teacup clock, well when I saw it I HAD to have it, or rather I had to make it.  Here are the beginning stages of my teacup clock, obviously I am designing it a little differently putting my own twist to it...it's not done, but bare with me :)


This is the board I am using,bought a slab of wood at home depot for $3 bucks and I have decided to keep it square.  I also decopagued music paper to the board, italian music paper, that I printed off the internet.



here are the teacups I found in some thrift stores, like about $.50 ea and got 25% off as well ;)





and here is the rough draft, the middle piece is the clock mechanics, which gets mounted to the back. I ordered clock hands, about $5 bucks, so waiting for them to come in, and I am also adding molding to each side of the board, that I don't have yet, need to go to Home Depot and get some.  I am so excited, hopefully it will actually tell time and no cups fall off in the middle of the night when we're sleeping,omg could you imagine? but I am told this Gorilla Epoxy glue is suppose to be the best stuff, so we'll see!!!

thx guys, will be posting finish product very soon!
