Good Gold Times

Decorative golden plate converted into a decorative golden clock!


Good memories are made by good times, and good times are definitely made better by viewing it in a good clock! So all it takes is a good clock to make a good memory. As simple as it can be.

Let’s cut short the philosophy and focus on clocks!
Well, a clock apart from the elementary work it does of showing time can become quite an exquisite home d├ęcor article.

A couple of days back, we saw this gold-oozing, decorative serving plate at the local market. It was that kind of an item which drew your attention to it and made sure it never went away. So I bought the plate just with the sole intention of reforming it into a clock. Coz I knew that this one article would be enough to embellish any pale wall.

All we needed to do is drill a hole to through its center. Then put a time-piece from behind – (you can take from an old clock or just buy a new one). Lastly added the black hands in front – hours, minutes, and seconds. Time to tick on. Another look that can be tried is by attaching a pendulum to the clock. Time to tick on again.

As I thought, when we put this clock on a blank wall, the entire wall emblazoned with the solid golden beauty of the clock. It’s so cool to see that such small measures have such great impacts!

Good-gold times, ticking on…


If you have any old decorative plate, just drill a hole through its center, add a time-piece in behind and the hands in front. Hang it and that’s it; you have made a brand new clock which is ready to flaunt your walls.
