I have always wanted to make a personalized clock for a customer, and recently I was given that opportunity. One of my customers asked to have her last name, wedding date and an infinity symbol painted on her 36″ Antique White clock. And I was more than happy to do this!!
I started with a 36″ clock base that I painted in Antique White–my go to color for a white clock that is not too bright. I made the slats vertical versus my usual horizontal. I wasn’t sure if having horizontal planks would effect any of the wording and rather than take the chance, I decided to change the orientation of the planks.
Once I got the 4″ Roman Numerals painted on, I printed out the name, date and infinity symbol. I always print lettering in Microsoft Word and use carbon paper to trace over the letters onto the clock face. I then use a paint pen to fill in all of the letters. Since some parts of the letters were very narrow, I did use a extra fine tip paint pen.
Next comes sealer, clock mechanism, hands and a hanger! I liked this clock so much that I decided to start selling it in my ETSY shop. You can find it here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/508385065/36-monogramed-large-oversized-distressed?ref=shop_home_active_6
Now, do you want your own personalized wall clock????
