So, here is a kick-off of the first series, I hope you enjoy it and make sure to follow along for more of her upcoming posts on upcycling!

Upcycled Home Decor Series: Part One {clocks}

Guest Blogger: Liz Ohsiek from Liz Ohsiek Designs

Hello readers of Rebecca Lukens Designs! I am thrilled to be guest posting a series about upcycled home decor.
First on my list is clocks. Did you know that you can make a clock out of just about anything? Craft stores sell the hands & battery box mechanism. They probably intend for them to be used on a wooden disc or in a cuckoo clock. I say, "Bo-ring!" Why not use a game board, vinyl record or hubcap for your clock's face? Create an instant conversation piece for your home… Here are a few gorgeous examples I found via (THE place to buy handmade items).
