Make This Retro-Inspired Clock DIY With... Wood Shims?

Posted: Updated:

Sometimes we see a really cool accessory or decorative item in a magazine that we just have to figure out how to replicate ourselves at home. And that was exactly Shelly from ModHomeEc's sentiment when she shared this awesome retro-inspired DIY clock with us.

She was in awe of a cool mid-century timepiece she saw on Pinterest and improvised to get the look with craft supplies she had around the house (like wood shims!) -- with an amazing result. And her updated version will look great in any modern home.
