My First Pottery Barn Knock Off

So, after looking at a few link parties today I discovered I was not the only one who fell in love with a huge clock in Pottery Barn's March issue.
I have wanted a BIG clock for a LONG time. Not going to happen anytime soon so I decided to make one myself!

Headed to Lowe's and got a piece of Birch wood...$4
Drew my circle, and then drew my Roman numerals. This was soooo tedious. If I had had a Cricut it would have gone so much faster (hint hint babe...birthday is coming up). Painted the numerals and then beat the crap out of it with a hammer to distress. Glazed, and then sanded.
I like it A LOT!!! Not sure if I will add clock hardware. I kind of like it as just a wall hanging.

Not sure where it is going to go yet. Maybe the kitchen....
