We love to see DIY and craft projects our readers get up to! Whether you’re trying your hand at one of our DIYs or just getting your craft on, nothing makes us happier than getting an email or a tag from you so we can take a sticky beak 🙂
And when one of you sent us before and after photos of your old clock upcycle projects, we just had to share them (with permission of course)!
Having been on the search for an antique, battery operated clock for too long and having no success, Rahul decided to take matters into his own hands. His quest took him all the way to Latvia where he found a woman who sells 19th Century clock parts on Etsy.
Once he found two clock faces that were just what he wanted, he went onto eBay to find battery operated clock mechanisms.
An afternoon of polishing and tinkering later, he had successfully restored the old clocks that are now on display in his home.
Upcycling an old object doesn’t mean you need to remove all the imperfections or even make significant changes — as Rahul shows us here, the character of old objects is what makes them so beautiful.
If you’d like to share any of your craft or DIY projects with us, you can email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or tag @stylecuratorau when you share them on social media 🙂
