I've wanted to do a grandfather clock from the time I started doing furniture. I know I'm probably going to get some flack for taking the thing apart, but I don't really care. :) It wasn't an antique and although nice, it wasn't in working order when I bought it so I didn't feel too badly about dismantling it.
Craig put the shelves in for me and I decided to go classic with it so it could fit in any decor.
It's so stinking cute and I love it! Because of the way the inside, on the top, was configured the shelf ended up sticking above the rim of where the glass started on the door. I thought it looked a little off so I decided to do the glass in the door as a chalkboard.
It's got great details!
I used a piece of faux tin (normally used for backsplash, I believe) for the back and then papered the sides and the bottom. I was going to use the paper on the back of the bottom half as well, but decided I didn't like it.
I want to keep this one, but I kept the hutch instead so this one is for sale! ;)
